MTV “Teen Wolf” Remake Taking Shape

Take it to the net, Scott, or 55 will crush you. Reports abound that MTV has ordered a pilot episode of the Teen Wolf reboot / remake that was rumoured to be in development in June.

“It has a fresh take and is very different from the original,” MTV series development VP Liz Gatele told Hollywood Reporter. “It has more of an ‘American Werewolf in London’ feel to it. It’s a dramatic thriller with two best friends in the center who provide a great comedy element: They are two very relatable characters on the outer circles of popular cliques.”

The fresh, dramatic thriller-comedy script was written by Jeff Davis, the creator of Criminal Minds. Whether it will be awesome, terrible or an irresistible combination of the two remains to be seen, but I think we can all agree that there had better be a Rupert ‘Stiles’ Stilinski character.
