Lacrosse On TV: MTV’s “Teen Wolf” To Star Tyler Posey As “Lacrosse Player” In A “Darker” Remake Of The Michael J. Fox Movie Script
“In the movie, Michael J. Fox’s character… already had the werewolf DNA in his blood. Whereas on the TV show, I’m bit [by a creature]. It’s a lot darker than the movie. [Also] the sport [I play]
isn’t basketball, it’s lacrosse.”
The story follows the life of often unnoticed lacrosse player Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), who wishes he could just be popular. One night, when his best friend Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) convinces him to go out into the woods to join a police search for a dead body, Scott encounters a creature in the darkness and narrowly escapes an attack with a vicious bite in his side. When strange things start to happen, and Scott realizes that he has new powers and abilities, he quickly learns that his life will never be the same.
“…he gets great at his sport, lacrosse, and becomes an all-star…”
Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey has confirmed that the upcoming MTV series will be “completely different” from the 1985 film. Michael J. Fox starred in the original movie as Scott Howard, a high school student born with werewolf DNA.
Posey told Collider: “It thought it was awesome that they were redoing [Teen Wolf] but I wasn’t expecting what I read from the script.”
He explained: “In the movie, Michael J. Fox’s character… already had the werewolf DNA in his blood. Whereas on the TV show, I’m bit [by a creature]. It’s a lot darker than the movie. [Also] the sport [I play] isn’t basketball, it’s lacrosse.”
However, the actor insisted that fans of the film will still enjoy the new television remake.
“I think for the people who know the movie and hear of Teen Wolf on MTV, there’s going to be some weird stuff going through their heads,” he admitted. “But I think that anyone, fan of the movie or not, will love this show.”
Teen Wolf is expected to premiere on MTV in 2011.
