‘Teen Wolf’ ran for a pretty successful six seasons on MTV from 2011 to 2017. The series was loosely based on the 1985 film of the same name, where a young werewolf defends his California town from supernatural creatures.
Now, the tv series is getting a film follow up. Most of the original cast have returned for this feature length sequel, including Tyler Posey and much to everyone’s surprise, Crystal Reed.
One of the biggest reveals of the trailer came in the final moments, when Crystal Reed’s character Allison returns from the dead.
Creator Jeff Davis says he wanted to make sure he did the character justice.
Having her back was amazing. I texted Crystal, ‘We don’t really have a story yet. I mostly have ideas but I always said if I was gonna do a movie, I would bring back Allison.’ She texted back and said that she burst into tears. She was in from that moment.
It’s reported that Paramount+ actually wanted Davis to restart the series, but he told them he only had a feature left in him, so that’s what they got.
Teen Wolf: The Movie will premiere on Paramount+ in October 2022.
We’ve told you about the upcoming comedy ‘Queenpins‘ before, mainly to fill you in on the impressive cast, which includes Kristen Bell, Vince Vaughn, Joel McHale, Paul Walter Hauser and Bebe Rexha.
The movie was inspired by a true story and follows a suburban housewife played by Bell, who is fed up with being dismissed and overlooked by her husband and society.
She decides to take back control of her life by starting an illegal coupon club. Her creation ends up scamming millions of dollars from big food companies while delivering deals to millions of fellow coupon clippers.
The fact that this is based on a true story, or “inspired” by one, makes me want to watch it even more. I love the idea of some small-town housewife sticking it to the man.
Anyway, the film recently sold to Paramount+ and Showtime in a pretty intense bidding war. The deal is reportedly worth $20 million, which ain’t so bad considering the budget was considerably less than that.
STXfilms will first distribute the film theatrically, and distribute international through its global partners and finish international sales at the upcoming Cannes Market.
Not entirely sure when it’s supposed to be released, but we’ll keep you posted. Maybe a trailer will drop soon.
