Mulcahy Directs A “Teen Wolf” TV Reboot

Russell Mulcahy (“Razorback,” “Resident Evil: Extinction”) is directing the pilot of a TV series reboot of 1985 film classic “Teen Wolf” at MTV reports ShockTillYouDrop.com.

Hunky “Criminal Minds” creator Jeff Davis penned the pilot which centres around Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), a dorky high-school student who gets a rush of new powers, including the ability to attract girls, after a wolf attack. Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed and Dylan O’Brien also star.

The tone is expected to have a more dramatic tone than the original comedy film, but will include plenty of buddy comedy element. Filming is underway in Georgia.
