“Wolf Canyon” from the screenwriters’ POV
Screenwriting team Tim Stubinski and Michael Markus, originally from the Ottawa Valley in Canada, knew each other in high school. Tim moved following graduation to work mainly with tax consulting firms while Mike pursued his writing dream, having published a children’s novel and optioned a screenplay before he turned 22.
Tim returned to his hometown of Pembroke in 2001 where the pair reconnected, and at a friend’s suggestion began writing together. Mike’s experience with television and a second published book led them to penning scripts as Tim marketed the duo to film and television companies.
One of those companies was Really Real Films with their script for a half-hour comedy called, “Wolf Canyon,” which they completed on spec for someone else who couldn’t produce it. They took their script to Cynde Harmon for consideration. Cynde and husband Allan loved what they read and decided to produce it, casting talents that include Kevin Sorbo.
