DEADLINE – Paramount has decided that the Dylan O’Brien movie Love and Monsters ne Monster Problems isn’t going to hit the big screen, rather PVOD on Oct. 16.
The movie will be available on VOD platforms for a 48-hour rental period at a suggested rental price of $19.99 in the U.S. The film will also be available for early digital purchase for the suggested retail price of $24.99.
The pic’s previous theatrical release date was Feb. 12, 2021.
“Given the demand for new, high-quality entertainment right now, Paramount has decided to release Love and Monsters widely on digital platforms,” said Andrew Gumpert, Chief Operating Officer, Paramount Pictures in a statement. “While we eagerly look forward to the reopening of movie theaters, we wanted to make this original and imaginative film available for everyone to enjoy at home.”
The movie takes place seven years after a “monsterpocalypse” forces all of humanity to move into underground colonies. O’Brien plays Joel Dawson who watches his fellow survivors pair off. He decides to brave the surface and face the monsters standing between himself and his high school sweetheart Aimee (Jessica Henwick). Along his dangerous journey, Joel makes unlikely friends including a heroic dog and a pair of survivalists (Michael Rooker; Ariana Greenblatt) who help him survive the monster-infested road to true love.
VARIETY – Dylan O’Brien is in negotiations to star in Peter Farrelly’s next movie, which is based on the novel “The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A True Story of Friendship Stronger Than War.”
O’Brien beat out a number of other actors for the part, which was one of the more sought after roles in Hollywood for a leading man in recent weeks. Viggo Mortensen, who previously starred in Farrelly’s last film “Green Book,” has a supporting role in the movie.
Brian Currie and Pete Jones will co-write the script with Farrelly, which is being adapted from Joanna Molloy and John “Chickie” Donohue’s book. It’s based on the true story of Donohue, who left New York in 1967 to track down and share a few beers with his childhood buddies in the Army … while they were fighting in Vietnam.
David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger and Andrew Muscato will serve as producers. The project is being overseen at Skydance by Granger, Goldberg and Aimee Rivera.
This movie follows Farrelly’s commercial hit “Green Book,” which was nominated for five Academy Awards. It won three Oscars, including best picture and screenplay (both for Farrelly), as well as supporting actor for Mahershala Ali. The film was also a box office success, grossing $314 million worldwide on a reported $23 million budget.
O’Brien is best known for the MTV series “Teen Wolf” and “The Maze Runner” franchise. He was most recently seen in the eOne film “The Education of Fredrick Fitzell” and will appear next in two Paramount movies, “Infinite” and “Monster Problems.”
He is repped by WME and Principal Entertainment LA.

VARIETY – Get ready to revisit Beacon Hills High School, or at least one very important graduating class: “Teen Wolf” will be delivering a virtual reunion special on June 5, MTV announced Thursday.
This special celebration is in honor of the supernatural teen drama’s ninth anniversary, but it is also only the first in a new digital format entitled “MTV Reunions,” which is designed to bring together cast members from television’s most memorable shows, all with a charitable angle. The “Teen Wolf” reunion will spotlight and benefit First Responders First, which aids frontline workers during the coronavirus pandemic.
Creator Jeff Davis and cast members Orny Adams, Linden Ashby, Ian Bohen, Charlie Carver, Max Carver, Arden Cho, Cody Christian, Shelley Hennig, Dylan O’Brien, Melissa Ponzio, Tyler Posey, Holland Roden and Dylan Sprayberry will all take part in this virtual reunion, which will be hosted by MTV News’ Josh Horowitz.
During the special, they will reminisce about the show and discuss their lives now, joining a growing list of fan-favorite series to come back together for a good cause during this pandemic. Others who recently reunited virtually include the cast and creator of “Community,” who participated in a table read in addition to a Q&A; some of the cast of “Friday Night Lights,” who watched the pilot together; and the cast of “Melrose Place,” who relived highlights of the Aaron Spelling primetime soap opera’s seven-season run.
“MTV Reunions: Teen Wolf” will be free to watch on MTV’s YouTube channel at noon on June 5, but it will also stream across MTV News, MTV brand, MTV Vault and the “Teen Wolf” social accounts.
“Teen Wolf” ran for six seasons from 2011 to 2017. The series started when once-average high school student Scott McCall (Posey) got bit by a werewolf and had to learn how to keep his deadly new secret while still juggling high school life. His town of Beacon Hills was revealed to be more of a hotbed for supernatural activity than it appeared at first glance, with characters including werewolf hunters, a banshee and a kitsune.
This “MTV Reunions” piece of programming coincides with the network’s launch of the #AloneTogether initiative, which is a global talent and social media-driven campaign designed to educate the younger demographic about the importance of social distancing.
Here are two episode stills of Dylan in the episode titled “The Cellar” in Amazing Stories which premieres March 6 on Apple TV+.
