Tyler Posey Interview: Truth or Dare
Updated On: 13th April 2018
Tyler Posey is an American actor, who is most known for his work as Scott McCall on MTV’s Teen Wolf. He is also set to appear on the third season of MTV’s Scream. He will be flexing his horror chops in Blumhouse’s next project, Truth or Dare, which will be released in theaters on April 13, 2018.
Screen Rant got a chance to talk with Tyler Posey on press day, where we discussed how much Tyler liked the concept of this film, what he learned while working with Blumhouse on this film, and whether or not Tyler would like to play a live-action version of Inferno.
SR: First of all, when this movie comes across your table, what’s your first reaction to like the script? Because I love the concept of this movie.
Tyler Posey: It’s cool, right?! This concept is so kind of like out there that it could potentially not work. And I think, I think Jeff Wadlow and Jason Blum did a really good job at casting the film and got people who just portrayed the most believable portrayal of what the hell was going on, you know, but Blumhouse has just made such a name for themselves that I trust them with whatever they ever they bring forth. I saw that it was Blumhouse’s Truth Or Dare. I was like, Holy Shit, I’m totally down to do this. And then I read the script and I was like, wow, this gives you so much fun. My character is really, really, really sweet and fun and kinda keeps the story moving along and you really ended up liking him and feel sorry for him at times. I mean, it was a perfect scenario for me. I knew Lucy (Hale) a little bit, I knew Nolan Gerard Funk a little bit, so I was excited to get to know them even more. It was perfect. It was great.
SR: You guys all had great chemistry too. That’s the one thing that I was like, man, these guys all seem like they really are like friends in real life. You know what I mean? One thing that Blumhouse is kind of known for it is like high concepts that give their directors freedom, but quick shoots for a little bit of a budget that goes a long way. What did you learn throughout the process of Blumhouse that you may have not learned before? Through the process of just filmmaking?
Tyler Posey: Um, I mean, Teen Wolf was shot so similarly to relate to Truth Or Dare because you know, we had, was similar content. Supernatural. Fighting for your lives. Um, and Teen Wolf, we had a deadline that we had to meet and we had an entire season. We had 20 episodes to film for this deadline. It was a rushed shoot, always, always. We were working in like 17 hour days, mostly on Teen Wolf and it was a lot like that in Truth Or Dare, you know. And so I learned though that, that it kind of didn’t really acknowledge while I was on Teen Wolf, but I learned that when you are in that sort of environment where it’s just go, go, go, go, go, go, go. It really keeps the intensity up. You don’t really have time to relax and, and drop the energy for the scene. What’s good is that most of these scenes and the Truth Or Dare are just really heightened, and crazy, and chaotic, and we’re losing our minds, and we’re on little sleep, and our characters are snapping and cracking. So when you have a shoot that’s so like go, go, go, go, go and intense, it’s easy to stay in that mindset. I mean it’s still a really fun atmosphere to be honest.
SR: Twenty three days. It’s crazy to shoot a movie like this.
Tyler Posey: Insane, insane. Especially something of this caliber, you know? And like we really made a little. Have a huge budget movie.
SR: Absolutely. That’s the one thing I took away. I was reading the production notes about the budget. I was like wow, that’s incredible. That’s what gets me excited about Blumhouse though, is that you get this high quality you know, that it’s going to have like, just like the Twilight Zone, it’s going to have some kind of twisted and it’s like, Oh man, this is so cool. That’s why I really liked the concept. I’m now on Teen Wolf, you got a chance to really learn the behind the scenes stuff too. So taking that side of the business and what you’ve learned here, how does that like kind of intertwined?
Tyler Posey: I was really excited to hop on this project mostly because I wanted to pick Jeff Wadlow’s brain and get to know, like how he was going to do this shoot. I love a horror film and how it’s directed in shot. I think it’s so cinematic and there’s a lot of like really cool techniques that you can use to kind of make this, make the shot creepier without adding effects to it, you know. And so it’s just really creative and really cool. Jeff was, you know, I, I was expressive to them and how much I like directing and how I just did it for Teen Wolf and he got a kick out of it and was like, oh, cool, would you want to, like kind of helped me out? He would take me aside and it’d be like, hey, so he kind of asked me a question. You kind of have me like help out with the cast in a way. I just wanted to be that helper. I wanted to direct, honestly.
SR: I mean do you think because Blumhouse, like I said, they have high concept ideas and then they executed very well. Is that something that you want to look into? Directing Blumhouse film?
Tyler Posey: Absolutely, man, Jeff is really talented and has a great eye and knows how to achieve it. But he also had a really great crew behind him. I think I would totally be up for the challenge. I think Teen Wolf was, I directed an episode of Teen Wolf, that show was f***ing hard to do. I had some directors that would come in on their first time and completely fail.
Tyler Posey: Yeah. And like they would be in way over their heads and, and…
SR: But I’m sure that failure helped you realize, alright, this is what to do.
Tyler Posey: Oh, absolutely. Yeah. Big Time. That’s why I was so down to direct Teen Wolf because I knew there are so many different elements that come into it. You have to have your vision, but you got to also sacrifice your vision if time is an issue, but still make it good and be fun and, and have a stress free environment. I think that type of mentality is the perfect kind of mentality you need to have in order to direct something, high intensity and a short shoots, you know, you gotta not take yourself too seriously and have fun because it can become very stressful and odd. Um, but also, you know, stick to your schedule, have a vision, and be strict about it. AndI would love to be able to challenge to direct a Blumhouse movie.
SR: That’s amazing. You have to wear a lot of hats when you’re doing something like that.
Tyler Posey: You do! You don’t think about it until you’re kind of like, you step up to be that role, but you’re like, OK, I want to be the director of that, that I want to have.
SR: I know that you got a Marvel project coming out. Chloe Bennet’s in it. She’s in and Milana Vayntrub, they’re both voicing their characters of which they play in live action. And you’re doing Inferno. Would you like to play Inferno in a live action?
Tyler Posey: Absolutely. So much fun, Dude. I’ve been a huge fan of Marvel for years, obviously because Marvel’s the coolest and as soon as this opportunity came up, I immediately jumped on. It didn’t really care what it was because I was just down with Marvel and then the character turned out to be really cool and it’s a lot of fun. I don’t get to play a lot of angsty teens anymore and I feel like Dante is super angsty and has an edge to him that I don’t really get to play too often. I would love to play Dante, my God, if there is a live action.
SR: I hope these characters appear in one of the TV shows, or movies, or something because, Ms Marvel, Kamala Khan is one of my favorite characters. I’m really looking forward to it.
Tyler Posey: Oh good, man! You’re gonna love it. Yeah. It’s really cool. I just saw a little version of it. I mean it’s obviously very rough because the animation takes forever. I saw a little cut of it. It looks great.
SR: Your buddy, Tyler Hoechlin, who was on Teen Wolf with you, he played Superman and CW universe. Would you want to ever want to following in those footsteps and probably play one of those characters?
Tyler Posey: Oh sure! Definitely, dude. I mean I had such a fun time on, on Teen Wolf, partly because my character kind of became sort of a superhero and was saving people’s lives and he was only missing the suit. I would love to, dude. I’ve been a fan of like X-Men and anything Smallville and…
SR: You were in Smallville, right?
Tyler Posey: I was in Smallville, yeah, but when I was a kid, yeah. It was the coolest shit of my 15 year old life. was so cool. Um, but yeah, dude would love to. I would love to play superhero.
SR: Anybody in particular?
Tyler Posey: I always got… Remember Batman Beyond? I loved Batman Beyond! That’d be fun, man, I don’t want, I don’t want to get too old before I got to pitch it.
SR: Teen Wolf was left open ended. Is there ever a chance to revisit that or would you want to revisit that? Or possibly even like behind the scenes, like directing?
Tyler Posey: 100%. I would, if there’s a revamp of Teen Wolf, I have to be attached to it one way or another, whether it’s a producer, whether I’m a PA and I’m just getting coffee for the actors. I really wanted to be a part of it. I would love to pass the torch on to somebody else. I don’t think I would want to be the lead of the show, but definitely show up as like a Bosley character.
SR: That’s what I was just going to ask you is where, where would you want to see the future of the franchise go? If it does get revisited down down-line?
Tyler Posey: Yeah, I mean honestly, I’ve always loved the idea of simplifying our Beacon Hill’s world and really just making it a werewolf in real world. Still dealing with like the brooding darkness. I really wanted to be darker. I keep having this envision of a Breaking Bad and meets Teen Wolf. Just more subtle but darker. I mean towards the end of that show we got some, we got really crazy with some folk lore and it became a little confusing and I think that less is more sometimes. I would love to see, kind of like a subtle sort of like really dark heavy adult teen Wolf, you know?
SR: Truth Or Dare is obviously a Blumhouse film. Would you ever want to see a Blumhouse cinematic universe? Because I feel like you could totally cross these franchises over.
Tyler Posey: You totally could, man. We were actually just talking about that. And one thing that would be cool is that Truth Or Dare deals with demons and so it was Paranormal Activity, you know?
SR: Lin Shaye could be like that, you know, through line character for all of it.
Tyler Posey: Right, right, right, right, right, right. I love that idea. I think I’ve always been entertained by the idea of a production company shooting stuff that has nothing to do with one another, but they’re in the same universe and then potentially doing a crossover that’s like kind of subtle or not subtle at all. I think that’d be really cool.
