As the story's narrative arch continues with a sequel to the original, the lead actor of WolfCop 2, Leo Fafard, was in Regina for a hairy transformation Wednesday.

Fafard plays both movies' main character, officer Lou Garou, who is a small-town, alcoholic cop that gets turned into a werewolf by a ritualistic occult group.

Fafard's makeup transformation, which was done by artist Emersen Ziffle, lasted for two hours.

CineCoup, the film company that produced the first WolfCop film, said in May 2014, that due to the strong positive buzz about the film, it decided to put the sequel into production.
