Pvt. Laurence Cooper (survivor of first film) is picked up by a team of American soldiers who are on maneuvers. Cooper's story of werewolves in the woods is met with skepticism until the soldiers return to the now-destroyed farmhouse and discover evidence that something strange indeed went on. They discover a soldier from Capt. Ryan's special ops team (who were mentioned in the first film, but never seen), who explains that his company was also slaughtered by werewolves and have become the werewolves in this film.
- After nearly 10 years and after several failed production starts, Kismet Entertainment Group officially announced on September 12th 2011 that they are not only working on a web series based on the film, but they're also in the early pre-production stages of the sequel. There's currently no word if the subtitle "Fresh Meat" or original premise will still be used.
- Originally budgeted at $5.5 million.
- Rob Green (The Bunker), who was once attached to direct, revealed the following: "Some of the characters actually love being a werewolf because they are so powerful – the ultimate killing machine…it’s a fun spin on the traditional angle that being a werewolf is a curse which damns the person the person no matter what. We also have a very savage she-wolf in the climax who faces against the leader of the pack of Dog Soldiers."
- Since the werewolves in this film were once members of a military unit, they were going to be more deadly and more coordinated.
- This sequel was supposedly going to offer "more action, more gore, and more werewolves."
- Neil Marshal (First Dog Soldiers writer/director) won't be returning, but he will be attached with a "story by" and producing credit.
- It's said that the film would have had some Americans in the film this time and would have the same elements that the first movie had.
- Producer David E. Allen originally intended Dog Soldiers to become a new franchise, with a second and third sequel, as well as a prequel detailing the werewolf family that was seen in the first.
- Eric Miller wrote the original script to this sequel.

- The sequel to 2002's Dog Soldiers.
