“X-Men: First Class” star Lucas Till will star in indie werewolf thriller “Wolves”, according to THR. “X-Men” (the Bryan Singer ones from the early 2000s, not the Matthew Vaughn one that Till was in) scribe David Hayter will make his feature directorial debut on the project.
Till plays a young man who transforms into a werewolf and gets falsely accused of murdering his own parents. He goes on the run, “eventually arriving at a small town named Lupine Ridge that has a history of supernatural happenings. There he finds the secrets to his past.” A mid-September shoot in Toronto is planned.
Till is currently shooting corporate espionage thriller “Paranoia” opposite Liam Hemsworth, and will presumably return to work on the “X-Men: First Class” sequel, “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, in early 2013, reprising his role as Alex Summers, the mutant known as Havok. He has two indies, Park Chan-wook’s “Stoker” opposite Mia Wasikowska, and stalker thriller “Crush” with Sarah Bolger awaiting release.
