Asmodee’s ‘The Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow’ to be brought to the big screen

Asmodee Entertainment, part of Asmodee, one of the world leaders in boardgames publishing and distribution, has entered into an option agreement with French film and TV production company Radar Films (Mediawan) to develop a feature film based on one of Asmodee’s best-selling board games, The Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow.

Scriptwriter François Uzan (Lupin, Family Business) will write the film adaptation of the popular hidden role game that takes place in a small village haunted by werewolves.

Created by Philippe des Pallières and Hervé Marly in 2001 in France and distributed by Asmodee, Werewolves has turned into a pop culture phenomenon, boasting more than 13 million players across the globe and selling over two million copies in the past three years. The game celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

“I’ve been playing The Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow for years,” says François Uzan. “Being able to bring it to life for the big screen while mixing it with my own universe is the ultimate ‘game extension’. I’m looking forward to embarking on this brand-new exciting adventure.”

Andy Jones, Managing Director at Asmodee Entertainment, adds: “The Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow is a deeply social game that brings together friends and family with its exciting universe, unique narrative and game concept. We believe that Radar Films is the perfect partner to collaborate with in adapting this thrilling role-playing game for the big screen.”
