According to the Hollywood Reporter, MTV (a product of the 80s itself) is ordering a pilot presentation of a Teen Wolf television series.
The article goes on to say that unlike the 1985 film which starred Michael J. Fox as a teenager who discovers he's a werewolf, this new version:
...will be set in high school, draw from the horror genre to explore werewolf mythology and include a romantic plot line.
Hmmmmmmmm... if I didn't know any better I'd say that sounds a little Twilight-ey to me. I sense a lot more angst coming and less plotlines over getting a keg of beer.
I loved the original Teen Wolf movie. Watching it again, it's not too terribly dated like some 80s comedies. And, frankly, I can't get enough of the "Win In the End" song by Mark Safan.
Will it work?
I didn't think a little TV show called Buffy the Vampire Slayer would work but look what happened.
