Sometimes, there is just nothing good to say about a new piece of news from Hollywood.
In fact, let’s play a game. Count how many bad things you can find in this new information: MTV is making a TV show based on the movie “Teen Wolf.” The series, which will be a drama/buddy-comedy, will star Tyler Posey (the putz at right in the picture). The show reportedly will be closer in nature to “American Werewolf in Paris” than to the movie itself.
If you counted less than five, you are way more optimistic than I am.
According to MTV, “The show will focus around the dorky teen wolf, Scott McCall (Posey), as he maneuvers his way through high school after he gets a bunch of superpowers, including the ability to attract the ladies, after a wolf attack.”
I know that Hollywood long ago stopped caring what we want, but really, can they please stop with these unnecessary remakes? Nobody wants them.
