Today’s movie remake is proudly presented by Teen Wolf

Warner Bros has started pre-production on a remake of the 1985 movie Teen Wolf.

The original Teen Wolf starred Michael J. Fox as Scott Howard, a high school student who discovers that his family has an unusual pedigree when he finds himself transforming into a werewolf.

According to, the studio has not signed on a director yet, and casting won’t begin until a script is finalized. The site also speculates that Zac Efron may be approached for the lead role

I’d say the remake comes on the heals of X movie or Y movie, but there have been so many remakes planned or produced in the last few years that I can’t honestly tell you which was the last one. Yet another sure sign that Hollywood is completely bereft of new ideas.
