Werewolf Flick ‘Year 2’ Lands Co-Star For Frank Grillo

by Thomas Tuna

Two is better than one when fighting werewolves.

Year 2–a new werewolf thriller that starts production in Puerto Rico this month–just signed a new cast member who joins the previously announced genre veteran Frank Grillo, according to a report on Deadline.

Katrina Law–perhaps best known for her small-screen roles in NCISArrow and Magnum P.I.–will play Dr. Amy Chen, a geneticist “who goes on a dangerous journey” with Grillo’s character “to saved loved ones–against a ticking clock,” according to the logline.

Year 2–directed by Steven C. Miller (2012’s Silent NightDeadly Night) from a screenplay by Matthew Kennedy (Inheritance)–stars Grillo (the Purge franchise) as scientist Wesley Marshall, who is “racing against time one year after a Supermoon has triggered a latent gene in humans that turns them into werewolves when they enter moonlight,” according to the synopsis.

Now, the Supermoon has returned, and Marshall is out to find a cure. When his sister-in-law and niece are attacked by werewolves, he must decide to “save the world or save his family.”

The film–which does not yet have a release date–is produced by Myles Nestel and Craig Chapman.

The werewolves in the movie seem to be in good hands (paws?). They’re being created by Oscar nominee Alec Gillis, whose special effects work was featured in Godzilla vsKong and Jurassic WorldFallen Kingdom.
