Tom DeLonge Makes New Film With Teen Wolf Star Tyler Posey

Tom DeLonge will be previewing a scene from his new live action Poet Anderson franchise short film, that stars Teen Wolf's Tyler Posey, at an event at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles on October 13th.

The new film was written and directed by the former Blink-182 star and also features Dylan Sprayberry ("Man of Steel"), Taylor Spreitler ("Melissa & Joey") and Samantha Logan ("The Fosters").

DeLonge expects to release the still-untitled film later this year. He says the film is "a brief and modest look into the mythology of the Poet Anderson universe. Meant to be a bit ambiguous and artistic, the plot traces the edge of a girl having recurring dreams of a boy at her school. While the dreams are romantic, fun and adventurous, a real threat exists requiring someone there at all times to protect her."

Posey will play Poet Anderson and had this to say about the project, "As a big fan of Tom's, I knew all about the Poet franchise and couldn't have been more stoked to be a part of it.

"And I was so humbled that he picked me to bring Poet to life. It was nothing short of a dream to work with him, let alone having him compliment me on my work and feeling like a true friend of his rather than just a work partner. He's a real genuine, ambitious and inspiring person that I love calling a friend."

DeLonge explains how Posey became involved, "I was introduced to Tyler through some common friends, and after a brief conversation it became very apparent we needed to work together. He was a passionate guy, and desiring opportunities to create art that was out of the box and forward-thinking. This made him a great match for the way I think.

"Tyler, as a person, has a gravity and calmness that came through on this film. He added 'cool' to the Poet character, a steady hand of youth and bravado. The emotional range he brought showed the heart, and passion for what a 'Poet' does…and is."
