Earlier this year, it appeared that “Teen Wolf” was set to make a long-awaited return to the big screen as a modernized remake aimed at the oh-so sophisticated teen crowd. Now, apparently, MTV is giving the furry guy his own television program. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the music network that no longer plays music has ordered a pilot for the upcoming series, which, and I quote, will “draw from the horror genre to explore werewolf mythology and include a romantic plot line.” Has the success of “Twilight” infected the upcoming project? I think Senior VP of Series Development Liz Gateley answers this question perfectly:
It has a fresh take and is very different from the original. It has more of an “American Werewolf in Paris” 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.
Did she really say “An American Werewolf in Paris?” Really? I suppose I should hold all negative comments until I’ve actually witnessed this atrocity for myself, but I’ve a sneaking suspicion that it’s going to suck. After all, anyone who compares their project to “An American Werewolf in Paris” is destined to fail. As long as someone’s surfing on the hood of a creepy van, I’ll give it a fair shot. For at least one episode, anyway.
