What We Do In The Shadows writer and star Jemaine Clement has told The Seattle Times that a follow-up film is already in the early planning stages. While stumping for People Places Things—his detour into romantic comedy territory—Clement said the sequel will focus on the werewolves-not-swearwolves led by Rhys Darby’s Anton. So it looks like Viago (Taika Waititi) was wrong about that whole “nobody likes werewolves” thing.
We recently learned during an 11 Questions session with Clement that he and Waititi also gave their mockumentary a TV treatment: They pitched a What We Do In The Shadows spin-off series to Television New Zealand that would follow the cop duo played by Karen O’Leary and Mike Minogue. But Clement didn’t seem optimistic about the show getting picked up, citing a lack of funds in New Zealand’s TV industry.
