We’ve been waiting for some tie on an update for the Disney+ Halloween special that is currently in development from Marvel Studios. It’s been long rumored that the project is an adaptation of Werewolf by Night, but that has yet to be confirmed. Last month, we’ve learned that Laura Donnely has joined the project alongside Gael Garcia Bernal, who will play Jack Russell in the story. One Take News has offered a small update on the project’s production.
It seems it was originally going to start in February, but production was pushed back to mid-March. It’s unclear what may have led to the later start, but it seems they are soon to finish the casting process on the special. The interesting tidbit is that the production will only run for around two to three weeks. So, we shouldn’t expect a full-on film production for this project.
Composer Michael Giacchino is currently attached to direct the project, and if they start production soon, we might get some kind of announcement by Marvel Studios sooner rather than later. If they are filming this early, they might be planning in quite a bit of effect work to prepare it for a Halloween release later this year. Perhaps we’ll get a tease on the project during the upcoming Moon Knight series, which will also jump straight into the supernatural corners of the MCU. We’ll see if there are also other specials heading our way in the near future if this one turns out popular.
