Maybe it’s just my lack of ovaries, but this thing looks pretty awful. I’m not even sure why they they called it ‘Teen Wolf’. Except for the fact that its got a teen who is a wolf, it is about as far from the Michael J Fox movie as you could get.
Truth is, MTV just acquired the rights because it’s cheaper to buy an existing brand than to have to introduce something that is entirely new and original.
What does it look like? Twilight with Teeth. The Werewolf Diaries. Cruel Intentions meets the Pound Puppies… OK, maybe not that last one, but you get the point.
I think the teenage girls are already lining up for their Comic Con autographs.
Here’s the official synopsis
“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.
