The Realm, the recently launched genre label of production company Bron Studios, is set to produce the werewolf horror/comedy THE WILDNESS, and producing alongside them will be iconic scream queen Barbara Crampton (pictured above).

Marcel Sarmiento, whose work includes the 2008 film DEADGIRL, the "D Is for Dogfight" segment of THE ABCs OF DEATH, and the "Vicious Circles" wraparound story of V/H/S VIRAL, will be directing THE WILDNESS from a screenplay by Evan Dickson.

The story 

follows a ski bum who’s pushing 40 and still has a penchant for drugs, babes and transcendental meditation. He’s forced to become an unlikely hero in order to save a mountainside community too drunk on wild parties and over-development to notice that their kids are being systematically turned into werewolves.

It sounds like this ski bum could be a very cool character, so it will be interesting to see who ends up landing the role. Casting is already underway, although production isn't expected to begin until January. Filming will take place in Vancouver.
