Devil Inside Guys' New Film Called Wer
Short for Werewolf? Possibly...

Devil Inside Guys' New Film Called Wer

Right at the beginning of this year, two new films were announced as follow-ups to William Brent Bell and Matthew Peterman's surprise horror hit The Devil Inside. One was conspiracy thriller The Vatican, and the other was being referred to as The Untitled Bell/Peterman Project. A few more details have now emerged on the latter, including the fact that it's no longer untitled, and actually called Wer.

What does Wer mean? Well, the word on the street is that, following The Devil Inside's exorcism shenanigans, the new film will be pointing its shaky-cams at another classic horror mythology, leading to some speculation that Wer is an abbreviation of Werewolf.

Not necessarily so, says Bell. "We can't speak about many specifics. There are rumours; some true, some not." He did reveal that "wer" can mean both "who" in German and "man" in Old High German. So, like, read into that what you will... BD seem confident that it's about a locked-up lycanthrope in a Transylvanian prison, and the defence attorney who's working on his case.

The Vatican and Wer will both continue to utilise The Devil Inside's by now tried and tested found footage / documentary technique, but Bell says their approaches will be very different, and that he wants to "try new things as well". He also seems to have learned a thing or two from the almost universally adverse audience reaction to Devil Inside's abrupt ending, but says he and Peterman "won't shy away from taking chances in future projects."

Wer starts shooting in April, while The Vatican awaits the first draft of Dave Cohen's screenplay. We get The Devil Inside in the UK on March 16.
