Vampires, move over: Werewolves are about to claw their way to the top.
Besides the sudden sprouting of hair expected on Jacob (Taylor Lautner) come Nov. 20's release of the Twilight sequel New Moon, MTV is getting ready to howl with a TV version of the 1985 Michael J. Fox movie Teen Wolf, about a high-school kid who discovers the strange effects of a full moon, says the Hollywood Reporter.
