MTV transforms 'Teen Wolf' for TV
MTV has ordered a pilot presentation for a small screen version of the lycanthropic Michael J. Fox hit "Teen Wolf."
Somewhat confusingly, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the new MTV "Teen Wolf" won't actually be a comedy at all, with a network exec describing it as "a dramatic thriller with two best friends in the center who provide a great comedy element."
Fans of the 1985 film will mostly remember Fox as a high school student who uses his newfound genetic ability to "wolf out" to become a basketball star and enhance his popularity. In the new version, written by Jeff Davis ("Criminal Minds"), the plan is to delve into werewolf mythology. Yawn.
In other news, there remain no plans to make a TV series version of "Teen Wolf Too," starring Jason Bateman.
