Casting! Here’s info one one potentially great project, one that will probably find an appreciative audience, and one that will perhaps just make you hungry. I’ll let you figure out which is which:
- Wentworth Miller joins Park Chan-wook’s first English-language film, Stoker,
- John C. McGinley will realize his destiny by playing police chief to Tyler Perry in I, Alex Cross,
- and Tyler Posey will go to war with rival taco vendors in Taco Shop.

This supernatural teen drama trend just isn’t going away, is it? Some days it seems like every other new film or series in the works is about blandly attractive young people struggling to deal with scary/sexy monsters while keeping up with their algebra homework.
One such show is MTV’s upcoming series Teen Wolf, a supposed remake of the 1980s comedy starring Michael J. Fox. A new trailer has been released, and… nope, I’m still not sure what makes this a remake. Watch it after the jump.

MTV has released the first trailer for their new television series based on the 1985 film Teen Wolf. The original movie starred Michael J. Fox as a high schooler who finds his groove after becoming a werewolf. The new series looks to have a Twilight/True Blood-like spin, starring teen heartthrob Tyler Posey (Lincoln Heights, Brothers and Sisters, Smallville) as the titular character. The official plot summaries say that Posey “gets superpowers, including the ability to woo girls, after a wolf attack.”
“Teen Wolf,” stars Tyler Posey (“Maid in Manhattan,” “Brothers and Sisters”), as the newly bitten werewolf, ‘Scott McCall,’ Dylan O’Brien as his best friend ‘Stiles,’ Crystal Reed as the mysterious new girl in town, ‘Allison,’ and Tyler Hoechlin (“Road to Perdition,” “7th Heaven”) as the older and possibly quite dangerous werewolf, ‘Derek Hale.’ Always an outsider and often unnoticed, Scott McCall yearns to be recognized in some small way that takes him out of his typical state of high school anonymity. When his best friend, Stiles, convinces him to go into the woods one night to join a police search for a dead body, Scott encounters a creature in the darkness. Narrowly escaping an attack with a vicious bite in his side, the next day brings strange surprises for Scott at school and his life will never be the same.
MTV’s senior VP of series development has said their “fresh take” “is very different from the original” and “has more of an ‘American Werewolf in London’ feel to it.” Um yeah…
Me? I still remember the days when MTV still showed music videos…
Hit the jump to watch the trailer now. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
