Screen Australia, in association with Screenwest and Create NSW, have announced production investment for animated feature 100% Wolf from Flying Bark Productions.

100% Wolf is based on the book of the same name by Western Australian author Jayne Lyons. The film will be directed by Alexs Stadermann and has been adapted for the big screen by longtime collaborator Fin Edquist, with Barbara Stephen and Alexia Gates-Foale producing.

The animated feature tells the story of Freddy Lupin, heir to the leadership of a proud family line of werewolves.  Positive he'll become the most fearsome werewolf ever, Freddy is in for a shock when on his 14th birthday his first ‘warfing’ goes awry, turning him into a ferocious… poodle.

The pack elders give Freddy until the next moonrise to prove he has the heart of a wolf, or risk being cast out forever. With the help of an unlikely ally in a streetwise stray named Batty, Freddy must prove he's 100% Wolf.
