Everybody loves the original Teen Wolf franchise. Apparently, that doesn’t include the executives at MTV, as the first trailer for their rehashed version of the film has hit the web, and the only similarity we can see is it’s title. Here’s the full breakdown of the show from MTV.
The show will focus around the dorky teen wolf, Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), as he maneuvers his way through high school after he gets a bunch of superpowers, including the ability to attract the ladies, after a wolf attack. The show will be both a drama and a buddy-comedy, with Scott’s buddy being played by Dylan, who isn’t initially buying into Scott’s tale. Crystal is on board as the new girl who falls for Scott and the other Tyler (Tyler Hoechlin) will be the local bad werewolf.” Criminal Minds creator Jeff Davis is the writer and Russell Mulcahy (Resident Evil: Extinction) is the helmer.
Basically, forget Michael J. Fox and even Jason Bateman and accept that this is a spinoff of Twilight in which the werewolf is the hero. The worst part is that you never actually see a wolf in the teaser, just some Thriller-like makeup.
Judge for yourself and check out the teaser after the jump.
