The film–slated for a debut on Paramount+ on an unannounced date–inked veterans Ian Bohen (as Peter Hale) and Khylin Rhambo (as Mason Hewitt) and newbies Vince Mattis, Nobi Nakanishi and Amy Lin Workman to the cast.
Mattis will play Eli Hale, Derek Hale’s 15-year-old son; Workman will portray Hikari Zhang; and Nakanishi (who appeared in two episodes of the TV series as another character) is Deputy Ishida.
These actors join the dozen already on board–star Tyler Posey, along with Holland Roden, Shelley Hennig, Crystal Reed, Orny Adams, Linden Ashby, J.R. Bourne, Colton Haynes, Ryan Kelley, Melissa Ponzio and Dylan Sprayberry.
Unfortunately for fans of the original series, Dylan O’Brien and Arden Cho will not reprise their roles. But Tyler Hoechlin, as Derek Hale, is expected to finalize his deal soon and join the cast.
Teen Wolf: The Movie–from writer/producer Jeff Davis–will be set in Beacon Hills, where a “terrifying evil has emerged,” according to the logline. “The wolves are howling once again–calling for the return of banshees, were-coyotes, hellhounds, kitsunes and every other shapeshifter of the night.”
Only a werewolf like Scott McCall, “no longer a teenager, yet still an alpha, can gather new allies and reunite trusted friends to fight back against what could be the most powerful and deadliest enemy they’ve ever faced.”
The original MTV Teen Wolf series–adapted by Davis from the 1985 Michael J. Fox-led film–ran from 2011-2017, and followed a young werewolf who defends his California home against supernatural creatures.
