Netflix bets again on social betrayals in French movie adaptation of popular card game
If Squid Game or Alice in Borderland left you wanting more betrayals among supposed comrades or even friends, Netflix has the solution for you in 2024.
Some time ago, the platform announced that it would adapt to live-action film format one of the most popular card games of the 21st century: Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow.
The game designed by Dimitry Davidoff, Philippe des Pallières and Hervé Marly and illustrated by Alexios Tjoyas, brings together a maximum of 18 players (47 with expansions), among whom there will be some wolves who, during the night, when no one — or almost no one — can see, will select a victim who will not see the sun again.
Titled in its original version Les Loups-Garous de Thiercelieux, Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow is one of those perfect games for large gatherings of friends, unless you have in the group the typical friendship that gets upset by everything.
The town sleeps and the wolves awaken on Netflix
One of the screenwriters of Lupin, François Uzan, will be in charge of directing the original French film for Netflix, which has already been confirmed for release in 2024.
The cast brings together several well-known names from the French film scene, including: Franck Dubosc, Suzanne Clément, Jean Reno, Jonathan Lambert, Grégory Fitoussi, Bruno Gouery, Lisa Do Couto Texeira, Raphael Romand, Alizée Caugnies, Jaroslav Vundrle and Ophir Raray.
Given that the treacherous distrust of the game is one of the main elements, Werewolves has a lot of potential if the right way of adapting that feeling to the screen in the film can be found.
We will have to see solid progress on this new Netflix original film to see if Werewolves howls loudly at night when the moon shines bright and the town… the town sleeps defenseless.
