I have no idea what to expect from the upcoming Scream-inspired TV series being developed by MTV. One of the last things we heard was that the series wouldn’t even feature the iconic Ghost Face mask, which kind of makes the series pointless, because that was Scream’s staple. But there’s a new bit of news that could mean otherwise.
There’s a report from Bloody Disgusting that indicates that they may actually pay homage to the original films after all. They say that the series will recreate the classic opening scene from the original Scream, and it will supposedly take place in the first episode of the series. That opening sequence is one of the most infamous horror scenes in movie history.
Actress Bella Thorne also confirmed in a fan chat via Yahoo Celebrity that she will be the victim in this scene. She was asked »

Scream has one of the best opening scenes in horror-movie history. Even if you remove the fact that Drew Barrymore, who was the biggest name actor in the movie, gets murdered in the opening minutes, it still stands as a fantastic piece of tension between a lonely teen girl and the crazy guy threatening to cut her into pieces. The way it goes from playful to sinister is downright perfect. So of course it's going to be re-created in the already announced Scream TV show for MTV. That's really not all too surprising, though its inclusion was up in the air once word got out that the iconic Ghostface mask wasn't actually going to be in the show. But who is this generations Drew Barrymore? None other than Bella Thorne. If you were a teen when Wes Craven's Scream...

MTV is now trying to save their reboot of Scream by keeping somethings similar to film franchise. Thus they needed a young actress to play the infamous role of Drew Barrymore. Now they have found the just perfect star, Bella Thorne. The former Disney actress will kick off the series next year of the victim of Ghost Face. Bella confirmed the news by letting it slip out during a social media question and answers session. MTV has yet to comment on it yet.
Wow, we are shocked by their choice. It will certainly show us that Bella is able to land a more controversial role. Granted, only she has said this-but we believe it. MTV seems to be in a rush to do something to please the original fans so they will give this a chance. It looks like they may be running out of ideas. The show has been »

For a show built on the legacy of the movie franchise it takes its name from, it seems to be choosing the wrong elements to remind us of that fact. MTV’s Scream TV series won't have the Ghostface mask and instead might have one made of flesh and now there are reports that the show will attempt recreate Drew Barrymore’s iconic opening death scene from Scream. The news came from Bloody Disgusting, but actress Bella Thorne also confirmed her involvement during a »

MTV's Scream series may not be using the iconic Ghostface Killer mask, but it will recreate one of the original Scream film's most remembered scenes. In 1996, it came as a shock to audiences when Drew Barrymore didn't make it past the opening act, as she was set up to be the star of the movie. She was dispensed rather quickly by the main slasher. Now, MTV has gotten another big star, and it's confirmed that this same opening act will be used once again to kickstart this small screen reboot.
Disney mega-star Bella Thorne stated that she has been secretly cast by MTV for this homage to the original Wes Craven horror classic during a Facebook chat on Yahoo! Celebrity. Bloody Disgusting was later able to confirm this report. About appearing in the show, Bella Thorne stated:
"Yes it is true. i will re-enact the famous scene of drew barrymore in the original series. »
We’re still nearly a year out from MTV’s upcoming “Scream” TV series and previous reports have cast doubt on how much the series will build off of the film franchise, but now a report from Bloody Disgusting indicates that they might be paying homage after all.

Out of all the movies earmarked for a small-screen spin-off, MTV’s Scream series continues to lead the pack in terms of intrigue. Much debate has surrounded the potential exclusion of the franchise’s iconic Ghostface mask, which was settled recently when Wes Craven unveiled the updated mask on his Twitter account (which you can see below). However there’s now bigger fish to fry as a starlet involved in the show, Disney alum Bella Thorne, has hinted at a far juicier homage that’s set to appear.
In an interview on Yahoo Celebrity (via Dread Central), the actress – whose involvement was only recently announced – addressed one rumour that’s been doing the rounds. Is the infamous Drew Barrymore opening sequence going to get a reboot? “Yes it is true,” the actress stated. “I will re-enact the famous scene of Drew Barrymore in the original series.”
So, how exactly will »

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a heavily tinseled tree, a tipple before midday and Gremlins on the telly at some point during the day.
The Joe Dante-directed black cult comedy sees protagonist Billy Peltzer being gifted with Gizmo, a cute furry Mogwai discovered by his inventor father in a mysterious Chinatown antique store.
Of course the creature comes with three special instructions which, if not adhered to, result in the spawning of grizzly Gremlins hell-bent on havoc.
The Steven Spielberg-produced movie - which is
currently being fast-tracked by Warner Bros for a remake - celebrated its 30th anniversary earlier this year, and here's what the main cast members got up to after the movie's success:
Zach Galligan plays William 'Billy' Peltzer who becomes enthralled by his unusual Christmas gift - yet careless with the three golden Gizmo rules.

Bacon’s weary FBI man locks horns with James Purefoy’s charismatic, serial-killing cult leader in this gruesome thriller
One minute in and five people have died. And that’s mild compared to what then unfolds in the course of two series. This isn’t too surprising really, given that The Following was created by Kevin Williamson, writer of Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. The result is a refreshingly unsubtle stab-a-thon, with twists aplenty and heaps of gratuitous violence.
Ex-fbi agent Ryan Hardy, played with enjoyable weariness by Kevin Bacon, is desperately trying to capture the escaped serial killer, Joe Carroll, and return him to prison. But it quickly becomes clear that Carroll is not your ordinary killer. While incarcerated, he uses his Hannibal Lecter-like charisma to assemble like-minded maniacs into a cult, whose purpose is to create mayhem on the outside by slicing up as many innocent people as possible. »

During the 1990s, Jennifer Aniston was one of the most popular actresses in the world. She may not have been blowing up the box office like Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan or Sandra Bullock, she was instead the star of the hit comedy show Friends – which had turned her into a household name.

Ever since we got word that MTV was not buying into Screams real star, Ghostface; the world was shocked. Well, MTV sort of heard about the uproar. Now they have agreed to have a rebooted and more modern version of Ghostface for Scream: The Series. It is rumored that it may be a more “flesh” like mask than the classic plastic style one. Here is what MTV’s Mina Lefevre had to say about the possible future of Mr. Ghostface on the TV series.
It’s a darker, almost more grounded, evolved version of the mask. It’s something we’re constantly talking about. How did that mask become that mask? What’s its purpose? How did it evolve? If the Scream movie mask was the more plastic version, for a lack of a better description, this one is a more organic looking and frankly darker version.

Adult Swim’s “Black Dynamite” is the latest to bash Bill Cosby The latest shot at Cosby, revolving around a “Cosby Coon Renewal Program,” has nothing to do with the rape allegations. In Friday’s episode, titled “Sweet Bill’s Badass Song or Cos Ain’t Himself,” Cosby is portrayed as a villain who kidnaps all the “blackity-black” actors in an effort to get them to “stop cooning in Black Hollywood.” The timely episode has been in the works for a year. Discovery's “Eaten Alive” could kill an anaconda Dr. Jesús A. Rivas, who specializes in the green anaconda that the Discovery special is using explains: "When they swallow a prey, because they don't have the respiratory system that we do, they can either swallow or breathe. They can't do both. So during the time the prey goes through what would be the throat, they have to do that in apnea. »

In mid-October, it was reported that MTV would not be using the iconic Ghostface mask from the movie franchise for its upcoming Scream TV series. While that is true, the killer won't be absent altogether, as MTV's senior vice president and head of scripted development reveals the show plans on creating an entirely new mask for the killer to wear.
Many fans have been wondering exactly how Scream will be Scream if Ghostface isn't around to dispatch teens at a random rate. Wouldn't it just be another generic slasher story evoking the nostalgia that comes along with the franchise title? EW talked with Mina Lefevre, who claims that the mask inspired by the Edvard Munch 'Scream' painting will have an organic feel this time around, which hints at it being made of human flesh.
Mina Lefevre explains:

After MTV announced that the network’s Scream adaptation had been picked up to series, news spread that the show did not have the rights to use the iconic Ghostface mask that is synonymous with the franchise. You may have been one of the many fans scratching your head wondering: How is this Scream without the Scream mask?! EW has the scoop: In an effort to subvert expectations and create a wholly unique experience, the series has created a mask of its own. Similarly inspired by the Edvard Munch painting, the show’s mask will have a more, ahem, organic feel. »
