Most people know very little about The Shadow Wolves

Kos Films has announced that CALL OF THE SHADOW WOLVES will start shooting in southern Arizona beginning in October 2009. Award-winning filmmaker Brian Kosisky is set to direct the film.

CALL OF THE SHADOW WOLVES centers on the real-life elite force of "Shadow Wolf" operatives and a story of their work with a CIA agent to prevent an impending terrorist attack against the United States. The Shadow Wolves, part of the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, comprise a Native American immigration and Customs Enforcement tactical patrol unit based on the Tohono-O'odham Reservation, a stretch of land the size of Connecticut that straddles the international border in Arizona. Considered the best trackers of human beings in the world, The Shadow Wolves have come face-to-face and captured some of the most notorious drug smugglers to enter the U.S.

"Most people know very little about The Shadow Wolves," said Kosisky. "This is a tremendous opportunity for a storyteller to create a present-day Western where Native Americans are the heroes."
