“Werewolves”focuses on the aftermath of a Supermoon event, which triggered a latent gene in every human on the planet, turning everyone who entered the moonlight into a werewolf for that one night. Chaos ensued and close to a billion peopl -

The deal was negotiated between Signature’s acquisitions managerBegüm Kayacan Parodiand the Solution Entertainment Group’s co-founderLisa Wilson.

Wilson added: “We are delighted to have closed another deal for U.K. rights with Signature. ‘Werewolves’ fits perfectly into their wheelhouse, and we look forward to a successful release.”
