Jonathan Glendening Chats About Strippers vs. Werewolves
If you’re looking for some campy and sexy werewolf action, well, you won’t have to wait much longer for it. The much talked about flick Strippers vs. Werewolves should be arriving in the US later this year. But to tide you over until then I’ve got an interview via shocktillyoudrop.com from director Jonathan Glendening on the upcoming werewolf movie.
In Strippers vs. Werewolves , when a werewolf leader is mistakenly killed within a seedy strip club in the darkest parts of London, the monsters decide to take revenge on the ‘dancing talent’ and return in full force and hungry for blood.
Check out the interview with Glendening below:
So how did the idea for Strippers vs werewolves come to light? What were your inspirations?
Jonathan Glendening: I was introduced to the project via a terrific original script by Pat Higgins. I loved its irreverent tone and the cracking dialogue. I was then lucky to have screenwriter Phil Barron assigned to help shape the production draft.
How would you pitch Strippers at the horror audience?
Glendening: Hopefully as a silly fun romp. After all, if you choose to see a movie called Strippers vs Werewolves – you’re not expecting a Mike Leigh movie are you? Though, I would like to see that! There are two main elements to the title so hopefully it’ll deliver on those…for an audience that wants to see werewolves and strippers not necessarily in that order.
You have quite a cast of British television talent for Strippers – surprising for a low budget horror. How did you get them all?
Glendening: I can’t take any credit at all for the casting, although obviously I was delighted to work with so many talented people such as Ali Bastian, Barbera Nedeljakova, Martin Compston, Nick Nevean, Marc Bayliss, Stephen Berkoff, Sarah Douglas and, of course, Robert Englund.
