Jason Momoa Set to Villainize a Werewolf Sexual Awakening

By  · Published on August 28th, 2012

Do you wish that modern werewolves would be rabid and aggressive instead of annoyed that they’re missing their chest wax at the salon? X-Men writer David Hayter might have a new movie for you. His directorial debut, Wolves, is meant to toughen up werewolves again. Hopefully the opening scene will show one of them eating Liam Neeson without much of a fight.

Fortunately, the production has just signed an actor with teeth. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Momoa is all set to play the villain of the flick opposite Lucas Till. The latter plays a young man who becomes a werewolf and has to escape after a grisly murder, so he settles down in the on-the-nosely named Lupine Hill where Momoa plays the patriarch of the wolven town. Fur most likely hits the fan soon after in what Hayter has described as a werewolf myth in service of a sexual awakening metaphor.

Momoa, in addition to Game of Thrones will next be seen with Sylvester Stallone in Bullet to the Head. Wolves is aiming to start shooting next month in sunny Canada.
