The Descent’s Shauna Macdonald joins Ed Speleers for Paul Hyett’s Howl

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Last week we brought you the Cannes sales art for director Paul Hyett's upcoming werewolves-on-a-train tale HOWL, and now we've learned a few more plot details as well as the first casting announcements for this fun-sounding flick.

Screen Daily is reporting that THE DESCENT star Shauna Macdonald and A LONELY PLACE TO DIE's Ed Speleers have signed on to star in HOWL, which is being shopped in Cannes by fledgling UK sales outfit Metrodome International. The creature horror, which begins shooting on May 27, tells the story of…

…a midnight train which is attacked by a terrifying pack of werewolves, forcing a shy ticket inspector to unleash his inner beast to lead his passengers to safety and survive the night.

Now THAT sounds like it could be a hell of a lotta fun!

Director Hyett is known for his SFX work on THE WOMAN IN BLACK and THE DESCENT. He also has the rabid dog horror tale THE POOL on his schedule.

Producers are Ed King and Martin Gentles for Starchild Pictures and executive produced by Lee Brazier (AV Pictures). Writers are Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler.
