Taika Waititi Confirms Sequel for ‘What We Do in The Shadows’
The irreverent humour we just witnessed in Thor Ragnarok, has always been present in Taika Watiti’s filmography, but before he took on superhero films, he injected that same irreverence in the horror genre, with his film What We Do in The Shadows.
The film, which premiered back in 2014, with Waititi co-directing, co-writing and co-starring with Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) the faux-documentary, horror-comedy about a group of vampires who live together in suburban New Zealand.
For years, it has been rumoured that a sequel to this film has been planned, but as time passed, the rumours dwelled. However, in a recent interview with the BUILD series while out promoting Thor: Ragnarok, Waititi confirmed that not only would there be a sequel, but that he would reunite with Clement to co-write and co-direct the film.
“The rumour is true, [Jemaine’s] been hounding me to do this [sequel]. The movie is called We’re Wolves. It’s a word play. Americans love word plays. You guys love puns.”
But sadly, it’ll take a while before we see this movie premiering in theatres, as he warned his fans not to have their hopes up.
“You aren’t going to see it for seven years. We are notoriously terrible at writing together, Jemaine and I. Usually take place over emails. So we’ll email each other one line of dialogue once a month. ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ took six years to write.”
