MTV has cast four actors in its upcoming Teen Wolf series, a re-imagining of the 1985 movie starring Michael J. Fox: Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed and Dylan O’Brien. The new version, written by Criminal Minds creator Jeff Davis, will be a dramatic thriller with buddy-comedy and romantic elements. The story will focus on Scott McCall (Posey), a “dorky high-school student who gets a rush of new powers, including the ability to attract girls, after a wolf attack,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. O’Brien will play Scott’s best friend; Reed, the love interest; and Hoechlin, an evil werewolf villain.
