The Hollywood Reporter says that MTV has hired Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed and Dylan O’Brien to star in “Teen Wolf,” its reinvention of the 1985 movie.
The pilot was written by “Criminal Minds” creator Jeff Davis.
MTV’s take on the film, which starred Michael J. Fox, is a dramatic thriller with a buddy-comedy element at the center and a romantic plot line. It revolves around Scott McCall (Posey), a dorky high-school student who gets a rush of new powers, including the ability to attract girls, after a wolf attack.
“Teen Wolf” is executive produced by Davis, Marty Adelstein and Rene Echevarria.
