Teen Wolf Spinoff Wolf Pack Casts Sarah Michelle Gellar

Published

on

Former Buffy star Sarah Michelle Gellar is returning to supernatural tv as a lead and co-executive producer on the Teen Wolf spin-off The Wolf Pack.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is making her return to the world of supernatural-based television in the upcoming Teen Wolf spin-off Wolf Pack. Teen Wolf was a hit television series aired on MTV from 2011 to 2017 and was a remake of the 1985 film of the same name. Yet the series is less inspired by the original film and more from the hit television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, and it now appears the two worlds will collide in a sense.

While Gellar is most famous for the lead role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which aired from 1997 to 2003, she has had an incredibly long and successful career. She starred in several successful films, including Cruel Intentions, The Grudge, and both live-action Scooby-Doo films. After some time away from television, she returned to short-lived series like CW’s Ringer and CBS’s The Crazy Ones with Robin Williams, both of which lasted one season. She has also lent her voice to animated series like as a Sith Inquisitor on Star Wars: Rebels and, most recently, Masters of the Universe: Revelation, where she voiced Teela. Gellar is a legacy in television, and it looks like she will continue with her next project, returning to the supernatural world in a Teen Wolf spin-off.

As announced at San Diego Comic-Con, Gellar is set to star in Wolf Pack for Paramount+ and will also serve as one of the series’ Executive producers. Gellar will play the role of arson Investigator Kristin Ramsey, a highly regarded expert in her field brought in by authorities to catch the teenage arsonist who started a massive wildfire which may have also led to the reawakening of a supernatural predator terrorizing Los Angeles. Gellar joins Armani Jackson, Bella Shepard, Chloe Rose Robertson, and Tyler Lawrence Gray.

Wolf Pack, which is based on the book series by Edo Van Belkom, is an attempt by Paramount to grow and expand the Teen Wolf brand. Teen Wolf: The Movie is set to premiere on Paramount+, has brought back most of the original cast and will set up the spin-off series. Wolf Pack will be the first spin-off series and likely a way for Paramount to expand the brand in a way they have with Star Trek, Spongebob, and Yellowstone into a long-running franchise with multiple spin-offs to keep the brand going for years.

Gellar stepping into an Executive Producer role on Wolf Pack shows a natural evolution of her career. The star has spoken about her difficulties and conflicts with Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon, and Gellar likely wants to make a working environment that is very different then what was reported on Buffy. While no word on when Wolf Pack will premiere, with a major star like Gellar both in front of and behind the camera, it certainly will become a high priority for Paramount and a must-watch for fans and newcomers alike.

Klein’s death was confirmed by her daughter, Shira Rose, who shared that her mother died “fulfilled, surrounded by her biggest fans, her family.”

After moving to Los Angeles in the late 1970s, Klein married Steve Wasserman, her writing partner. The duo collaborated as writers and executive producers on “Beverly Hills, 90210,” launching Klein’s career in prime time.

Klein collaborated on “Just Deal,” Sk8″ and “Scout’s Safari” with Tommy Lynch, her creative partner after Wasserman’s death in 1998. Other notable credits include “Northern Exposure,” “Mancuso,” “FBI,” “Gabriel’s Fire,” “As the World Turns” and “Secret Central.”

Born in Manhattan on March 14, 1956, Klein was raised by her mother, a senior administrator at Weill Cornell Medical College, and her father, the co-founder of Barton’s Candy and a Holocaust survivor. Klein graduated from Harvard Radcliffe in 1977 with a degree in psychology and social relations.

Klein first ventured into the television industry as an assistant on “Sesame Street” before teaming with Wasserman. Later in her career, she worked as a writer and producer on “One Life to Live” and head of creative on “Make It Pop” and “The Other Kingdom.”

Klein married again in 2000, wedding painter and audiovisual expert Isaac Levenbrown. In 2011, the couple moved to Virginia, where Klein began to teach screenwriting at Drexel University. After Levenbrown’s death, Klein relocated to Toronto and then Los Angeles once more.

Reshoots Wrap On Latest Nick Fury MCU Project

Published

on

Samuel L. Jackson announces that reshoots have wrapped on Secret Invasion, the Disney+ MCU series in which he is playing Nick Fury yet again.

Samuel L. Jackson has announced that reshoots are wrapped on his upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series Secret Invasion. The Academy Award-nominated actor has been a part of the MCU since the very beginning, appearing as the S.H.I.E.L.D. leader and Avengers founder Nick Fury in the original 2008 Iron Man. He has gone on to reprise the role in more than a dozen other MCU projects, including a voice-only role in the animated series What If…? and a major appearance in 2019’s Captain Marvel under layers of de-aging technology. He is often spotted working with former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill, the character introduced in 2012’s Avengers, played by How I Met Your Mother‘s Cobie Smulders.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Both Smulders and Jackson are set to re-team in Secret Invasion, which is currently expected to premiere in early 2023. Part of the upcoming Phase 5 of the MCU, the six-episode series will focus on the former S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel attempting to track down an alien menace after they discover that shape-shifting Skrull have been impersonating various humans across the globe in a clandestine takeover. The cast of the series includes Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald, Carmen Ejogo, and Dermot Mulroney, with appearances by MCU veterans Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, Don Cheadle as War Machine, and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos.


On his official Instagram page, Jackson just shared a picture of himself wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with Nick Fury’s face. In his caption, in addition to announcing that he was wearing “pachy-pants” with elephants all over them, he revealed that it is wrap day on Secret Invasion. While Nick Fury “chills,” he will be heading to Broadway to play Doaker Charles in the August Wilson play The Piano Lesson. Check out the post below:

Considering the fact that Jackson is committed to a major role away from the set of Secret Invasion, it is safe to say that the bulk of filming is well and truly done. This spells out good news for fans who are eager to see Marvel’s take on the body snatcher trope. The series has now moved fully into the post-production phase, with the additional footage joining the early footage that has already had the opportunity to be edited.


Now that Secret Invasion has progressed to the next step, it is likely that Marvel will begin the slow drip of promotion for the series. There are quite a few MCU projects coming between now and the release of the series, including She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, so it likely will be some time before an official trailer is released. However, now that everything is in the can, they will have the ability to start sharing production stills and other tidbits from the series while fans wait.
