"Teen Wolf" TV Series is Planned

Posted: September 1st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Teen Wolf" TV Series is PlannedSubmit Comment
MTV has announced that after seeing the script, it has ordered a pilot presentation for a TV series based on the 1980s movie "Teen Wolf."

The 1985 film starred Michael J. Fox as a teenager who discovers he is a werewolf. The MTV version will be set in high school, draw from the horror genre to explore werewolf mythology and include a romantic plot line.

"It has a fresh take and is very different from the original," said MTV's Liz Gateley. "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."

The new "Wolf" was written by "Criminal Minds" creator Jeff Davis, who executive produces the pilot with Marty Adelstein (Fox's "Prison Break") and Rene Echevarria (ABC's "Castle").

Will the main lead start shaking uncontrollably later in his life?

Now that's just mean. You damned well know Micheal J. Fox makes awesome smoothies.

"It has a fresh take and is very different from the original,"

Yeah, yeah, we keep hearing that. When can we expect anyone to actually f*cking deliver?

"It has more of an 'American Werewolf in Paris"

Can anyone tell me what that's supposed to mean? An American Werewolf in Paris? I thought the f*cking movies were about an American teenager in an American school, and this guy's talking about Paris? Is he talking about Paris, Texas? Or is he just shoveling sh*t so we'll buy a bushel?

By "has more of an 'American Werewolf in Paris' feel to it" do they mean a complete piece of sh*t follow-up to a classic movie?

CANCELED!!!! see, its gonna be so lame that production won't even start cuz someone with a brain in the studio is gonna realize how stupid its gonna be.

This is just another hangover effect from the the brain poisoning slush that is Twilight. The CW wants to put on some Vamp emo show called The Vampire Diaries and now this. I guess they want to get a jump start on what they think will be the next craze once the Twilight sequels go deeper and try to convince the world that Werewolves are hot as well.

An original take that has a American Werewolf in Paris feel to it? Then how the f*ck is it fresh?! If the take is from '97, then the sh*t is expired.

"They are two very relatable characters..."

Quite the assumption.

Michael J. Fox can't use and etch a sketch.

Because of Parkinsons.

Micheal J asked if he could be in the show. He wanted to play a werewolf that shook like a f*cking spaz due to parkinsons.

While driving through New York City, there was only 1 spot left, but it was a judgment call due to its proximity to a fire hydrant. Upon seeing the Meter Maid, MJF asked her is he could park in that spot!

She replied: Park in Son!

"I just read that upon hearing of the news of this remake, Michael J. Fox was 'All Shook Up!'"


BAAAAHAHA...

Poor guy.... Would you make fun of Muhammad Ali?
Wait better yet... who do you think would win in a fight? J FOX or Ali?
Ranger writes:
on September 1st, 2009 at 5:12:37 PM

MJ would, because he can still drive and car and he'd run over Ali.

Better yet. Put them both into bumper cars and time how long it takes before either of them makes contact with the other. I'll put 20 bucks down on 4 minutes!

Wow... he still drives a car? Is it one of those cars toddler cars that you shake to make them go?
triggax writes:

FAIL... Sadly my attempt at humor is pathetic...

I would imagine that the two of them fighting would end up looking more like interpretive dance.
