THR reports that MTV is taking the 1985 Michael J. Fox comedy Teen Wolf and turning it into a “dramatic thriller with a buddy-comedy element at the center and a romantic plot line,”  and four actors have been cast in the lead roles.  Tyler Posey (Brothers & Sisters) will play Scott McCall, a dorky high-school student who gets a rush of new powers, including the ability to attract girls, after a wolf attack; Dylan O’Brien plays Scott’s best friend, “who is initially dismissive of Scott’s theory that he was bitten by a wolf but then begins research on human-werewolf transformation.”  Crystal Reed is the love interest and Tyler Hoechlin (7th Heaven) is, “a handsome local boy who in fact is a vicious and predatory werewolf capable of great harm.  I have very little hope for this project because nowhere in THR’s article did I read any mention of a werewolf playing basketball.
