Rumor: Uh Oh, Warner Brothers to Revive Teen Wolf?!
The rumor mill is a'spinnin' at full tilt today and we've got a hairy bit of speculation for you. The guys over at Moviehole are reporting that a remake/reboot of the 1985 classic (is it even a classic?) Teen Wolf is in early development. Yes, the story of the high schooler who makes friends and learns how to slam like Kobe after he discovers he's a werewolf (just like his father!) but ends up learning just who his friends really are is soon to be coming to theaters (again). Take note, though. By early development, they mean very, very early. Warner Bros. is currently shopping for a writer, but the studio isn't yet sure "which way [they want] to go."
Regardless of the direction, it's pretty likely we'll end up seeing a modern-day heartthrob (please not Robert Pattinson) deal with the logistics of massive body hair growth. The original starred the one and only Marty McFly - I mean, Michael J. Fox (though Teen Wolf did release the same year as Back to the Future, and only a little over a month apart!). And sure, no one's attached yet. Not to write, direct, or star - but what's the fun in that? Let's get to speculatin'. There are some easy choices here: Zac Efron, Shia LaBeouf. But how about making an awkward situation even more awkward with Michael Cera or even Christoper Mintz-Plasse.
And what if it's directed by Jon Favreau? Or written by the likes of Edgar Wright? Let's make this thing, if only through comments and in our minds. So who would you love to see be a part of this new Teen Wolf?
