Rumours say that Stranger Things star, Finn Wolfhard, is part of the cast for the feature film Rules for Werewolves, written by Kirk Lynn and directed by Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux.

Although it has yet to be confirmed, fans are already very excited and have taken the rumour as a fact.

"Can’t wait to see this!!"

Despite the fact that Finn can already being found everywhere on our screens in 2019 with Stranger Things, IT, The Goldfinch, voicing Player in Carmen Diego and voicing Pugsley in The Addams Family 2019 animation, fans can't get enough of this young 16-year-old star.

Who else thinks this is definitely Finn's year? And let's not forget that he'll be tackling the massive Ghostbusters 3 franchise in 2020! It doesn't look like anything's going to stop this young breakout star anytime soon.

Anyway, what is Rules for Werewolves?

Basically, Rules for Werewolves centres around Bobert, a lost and desperate runaway. If he wants to survive, Bobert has to become a member of this group of wild, young squatters who lives in foreclosed homes. Now, Bobert wants to go back to get his younger brother, Timmy, to join him, but wait a second.

...Is this group of new 'friends' actually safe to be around?

Oh boy, and things start to get even worse when some of the squatters become increasingly violent while claiming that they're actually werewolves.

On top of it all, a local cop is slowly closing in on their trail...

Okay. So, this film is actually adapted from Kirk Lynn’s debut novel of the same name. In the Guardian review of the book, it actually praises the book for its:

"[...] unflinching analysis of freedom and liberty, co-operation and co-opting, the unnatural and the denatured [and] posing questions about free will and determinism.”

So, if the film is anything like the novel, then we'll be in for a treat!

However, we won’t know for sure until we watch the film whether or not these kids are indeed the werewolves they claim to be, or whether their belief of being werewolves is down to the extreme stress the teenagers are under.

What we do know, is that the plot seems to bend towards focusing on the question of free will and whether or not free will even exists.

Basically, it's a very heavy topic.

Although we don't exactly know what role Finn is rumoured to be playing, we know that it appears to be different from any movie role Finn has taken on and it's definitely going to be an interesting role for him, if he's indeed part of the cast.

In any case, it'll be a much different role in comparison to the role of Stranger Things Mike Wheeler or IT's Richie Tozier as this particular film seems to focus more on the characters and the bad hand that life has dealt them.

But, who else loves that Finn Wolfhard is taking on so many different roles and not being typecasted into any particular one?

I guess the only thing missing now is perhaps an action film.

...Or a superhero movie.
