Beyond The Box Set

250 EpisodesProduced by Harry Chappell & John LucasWebsite

At Beyond The Box Set, we believe every great movie deserves a questionable sequel. Each week, we take a stand-alone cinema classic and compete to come up with the best, worst and most bizarre pitches to bring them back to the big screen.

Wolf 2: Old Wolf (feat. Phil Better & Doghair Presents)

It's time for another Podcast crossover! As we conclude our Halloween 'Season of the Wolf' we're joined by Phil Better of The Phil Better Show and Rory Spence from Doghair Presents to discuss 'Wolf' - a 1994 romantic horror starring Jack Nicholson, James Spader and Michelle Pfieffer. 

Now, if any actor was born to play a werewolf, it's probably Jack Nicholson. But while he certainly looked the part, we found this movie slightly lacking in bite. Fortunately there were enough weird and wonderful moments to keep us engaged - not least the dated effects, bizarrely inappropriate jazz saxophone score and the frequently terrible use of body doubles. 

Made for a surprisingly pricey $70 million, Wolf just about turned a profit on release, but despite the starry cast is largely forgotten today. Can we make the case for a belated sequel? Tune into this week's episode to find out...


Every week on Beyond the Box Set, we take a classic standalone movie and compete to pitch fantasy sequel, prequel or spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen. Sometimes alone, sometimes with special guests, we're putting a fresh spin on the Hollywood canon.
