The satanic warlords of Hollywood have a new way of torturing us. They aren’t remaking pieces of our childhood into movies anymore, they are turning them into TV shows! Heathers is already under the guillotine waiting to get chopped, and now Teen Wolf is next. Isn’t it sad that your bestest friend, the 1980s, is getting punched in the face over and over again and all you can do is watch…and Tivo it.
Reuters reports that MTV is working on a pilot for the TV version of Teen Wolf and they plan to make it more dramatic. You know, for the Twilight audience. Gurgle. The Senior VP of series development for MTV said, “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.”
An American Werewolf in Paris?! That’s like saying their remake of Teen Wolf is going to have more of a “TOTAL SHIT” feel to it. Which it totally is. It’s going to be a giant bowl of fur-covered caca.
The only way I’ll be kind of okay with this is if they cast Adrian Grenier’s ass crack as the title role.
