Interview: Director / Writer Lowell Dean About ‘WolfCop’


How did you get involved in WolfCop?

The idea for WolfCop popped into my brain when I was working on a different script. The character was so funny, weird, and cool that I immediately dropped everything and worked on that script instead.

Give us a brief synopsis of WolfCop.

WolfCop is the story of pathetic, hard drinking cop Lou Garou. Lou is wasting away his life in the (seemingly simple) small town when something happens that changes him forever. Spoiler alert: he becomes a WolfCop, and must use his newfound powers for justice and to protect his town.

Tell us a little bit about your experience making WolfCop.

WolfCop was a crazy film to make; much like any independent film is no doubt a challenge as you are constantly fighting for more time and more money. For us we also had to fight things like bad weather as we were shooting in Saskatchewan. However, it was also great fun because we had a WolfCop on our set and no shortage of day to day weirdness.

What sort of message (if any) do you think Wolfcop is trying to deliver to audiences?

That’s a tough question. I think the true message of WolfCop is it’s never too late to be a better WolfCop… or crime doesn’t pay.

If you were in line at the movies and someone was trying to choose between Wolfcop and the other latest ones, how would you convince them to see your film?

I feel like people already know, in their heart, if they want to see WolfCop. If they were on the fence, I would let them know that what our film may lack in budget or big Hollywood stars, it more than makes up for with weirdness, gore, sex appeal, and a few things you can never ever unsee.

WolfCop is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and as a Digital Download
