New Zealand's TVNZ 2 and investment company NZ On Air are starting to create a television spin-off of the comedy horror " Real Ghouls ", reports The Hollywood Reporter .|
In 2005, Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement filmed the short film What We Do in the Dark: Interviews with Vampires about the difficulties of adapting ancient bloodsuckers to life in modern society. A few years later, the friends became prominent figures in the world of New Zealand film and television, which gave them the chance to bring the story of the hapless ghouls to the big screen. The Real Ghouls earned a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and earned about $ 6.9 million at the worldwide box office with a budget of $ 1.6 million .
The series based on the black comedy will be called " Paranormal Event Response Unit ", and its main characters will be policemen Karen and Mike featured in the original plot. The budget for the six 30-minute episodes will be about $ 1.4 million .
It is expected that Waititi and Clement will be actively involved in the making of the series. Taika is currently filming the superhero blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok, and Jemaine recently took part in the voice acting of the cartoon Moana.
The creators of the franchise also plan to work on a full-length spin-off " Real Ghouls ", which will be dedicated to werewolves.
