For years, David has established a successful career in the movie industry as a screen writer. With hit films such as X2 and Watchmen on his resume, Hayter is definitely sought after as a talented writer. However, he is now poised to pursue his long-term ambition of directing his first movie.
Hayter’s first film foray as a director is called Wolves. It is a teen horror movie about werewolves and it will function as a metaphor for teenage boys who make the transition into adults. Wolves will be similar to the popular Twilight series but it is intended to be more graphic as it delves deeper into the mythology of werewolves. Hayter had previously began production of the film with Crystal Sky but financial complications led to a cancellation of the project. Hayter has also attempted to score a directing role with other films such as Watchmen and his own depiction of the Marvel character, Black Widow. But unfortunately, he lacked the repertoire of smaller films needed to give him creditability as a director.
Thus, he aims to start building a theatrical body of work with Wolves. E1 Entertainment has partnered with Hayter in an agreement for a possible television series as well as a movie deal. Hayter intends to start production of his film in July. According to sources, Ray Stevenson was signed on for Wolves the first time Hayter tried to make the film. So, perhaps he still has a definite invitation to star in the movie.
