ShockTillYouDrop.com reports that Russell Mulcahy (Resident Evil: Extinction) will direct the pilot for MTV’s “Teen Wolf,” a reinvention of the 1985 movie starring Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed and Dylan O’Brien.
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.
The pilot is filming in Atlanta, Georgia.
