MTV’s Scream TV series is just taking big risks across the board, isn’t it? Not only is the show doing away with the Ghostface mask and possibly running with one made of flesh instead, but there’s also a report floating around claiming it’ll attempt to recreate Drew Barrymore’s unforgettable death scene with Bella Thorne. Hit the jump for more on the new rendition of the scene and what it could mean for the show. The 10-episode series will begin in October 2015. It also stars Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Carlson Young, Amadeus Serafini, John Karna, Bobby Campo, Connor Weil and Joel Gretsch. The news comes from a Bloody Disgusting reader, but Thorne also confirmed her involvement during a Yahoo Celebrity Facebook Q&A. When one fan asked if she’ll appear in the first episode, Thorne replied: “yes it is true. i will re-enact the famous »

Ryan Murphy is keeping a firm grip on small-screen horror. The co-creator of American Horror Story is on track to ensure that his next series, Scream Queens, will follow in the footsteps of his aforementioned smash hit. In addition to adopting the anthology format of Ahs, Scream Queens is accruing an equally impressive cast that genre fans are gonna love.
According to numerous sources, the 15-episode series will be led by bona fide horror legend Jamie Lee Curtis, and fledgling final girl, Emma Roberts. Both actresses have dallied with the dark side on more than one occasion. In fact, Curtis emerged on the film scene in John Carpenter’s 1978 Halloween. Before long she became a slasher pin-up, after starring turns in Terror Train, The Fog and Prom Night during the late 70s and early 80s. It wasn’t until the underrated reboot of the Halloween franchise, Halloween: H20, in 1998 that »

Ryan Murphy’s horror-comedy anthology series on Fox, Scream Queens, has cast its first two major leads. The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis have been cast, but details on their characters are currently being kept under wraps.
Roberts has had experience working in the genre on Murphy’s American Horror Story and in 2011’s Scream 4. Curtis is the major get for the show, though, being that she is the original “scream queen” by the common definition we know today. The actress famously starred in Halloween, Halloween II, H20: Halloween 20 Years Later, The Fog, Prom Night, and Terror Train. Having a show called Scream Queens without Curtis’ inclusion would’ve have been a giant missed opportunity, so this news is especially exciting.
The series is set on a college campus where a series of murders begin to take place. Like American Horror Story, the »

In October, Murphy revealed that, like American Horror Story, Scream Queens will follow a new storyline with a fresh setting each season. He also mentioned that every season will focus on two female lead roles, so it’s »

There once was a time (and it was not so very long ago) when TV shows were adapted into films and not the other way around. But as the imagination of contemporary Hollywood remains in strictly “pastiche” mode, it should come as no surprise that quite a number of beloved films from the 1980s and 90s are getting their own small-screen adaptations and spinoffs. Joining the TV crowd is Wes Craven’s 1996 slasher comedy Scream, which is now getting another day in the dark with a full series order from MTV.
MTV’s Scream series will follow a group of high-school stereotypes as they survive (or don’t) a serial killer in their midst. Everyone from the “shy popular girl” (Willa Fitzgerald) to the artsy loner (John Karna) will be on hand to play their requisite parts. It does not seem to be clear whether this show will simply take place in Woodboro, »

The Scream TV spinoff has been picked up by MTV for a ten-episode first season.
The network confirmed today (October 29) that the series will premiere in October 2015.
Scream spawned movie sequels in 1997, 2000 and 2011.
It was recently confirmed that the film's famous masked Ghostface killer would not initially feature in the spin-off series.
"However, while Ghostface is owned by Fun World, the Scream motion picture franchise is owned by The Weinstein Company, and it is their option to film a movie or TV show without Ghostface.
"Who knows what will happen in the future regarding the series and Ghostface? Never say never."
The pilot of the television series will »
The upcoming Scream television series will not initially feature Ghostface.
There are no plans in place to bring the masked killer from the films to the small screen, according to Ghostface designer Rj Torbert.
"I had been in communication with The Weinstein Company regarding this, and they have informed me - that as of now and during the initial launch - that Ghostface is not involved in the new format," he said in a Q&A (via Ghostface.co.uk).
"They also indicated that because of this direction, it does not mean that Ghostface will not be involved at a later date."
Torbert added: "We believe Scream is Ghostface and Ghostface is Scream. However, while Ghostface is owned by Fun World, the Scream motion picture franchise is owned by The Weinstein Company, and it is their option to film a movie or TV show without Ghostface.

When "Scream 4" hit theaters, the plan was to make a new trilogy. Even though lots of actors were brought back and the film was once again directed by Wes Craven, "Scream 4" only managed to earn $97 million worldwide, which is almost half what the previous lowest-grossing "Scream" installment earned. Clearly fans no longer care about the "Scream" franchise, which is why it was a bit surprising when The Weinstein Company announced that it partnered with MTV and Craven to turn "Scream" into a TV series. Now comes word from Fun World, the company that owns the rights to the Ghostface mask, that the upcoming TV series will not include Ghostface. "I had been in communication with [The Weinstein Company] regarding this and they have informed me, that as of now, and during the initial launch that Ghostface is not involved in the new format," said Fun World's Rj Tolbert. "They also indicated that because of this direction, »
If The Weinstein Company opts to move forward with the series while omitting the presence of Ghostface theyll be all but shooting themselves in the feet. The Scream franchise isnt exactly on the upswing. Genre fans have shown waning interest in the franchise as it is (each film has seen gradual decline in numbers Scream earned 103 million Scream 2 101 million Scream 3 89 million Scream 4 38 million). To possibly pull the one familiar from the franchise could prove detrimental. »
Ja from Mnpp here with our third week's worth of Halloween-flavored "Beauty vs Beast" treats - today we're swerving away from Wes Craven's cadre of high school students in distress to hit up a whole different kind of Final Girl fight club: jump in the Snowcat, we're heading up to The Overlook Hotel to face off the ill-fated Torrances, Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and Jack (Jack Nicholson), with their snowed-in battle for little Danny's soul.

After years of playing screaming victims, women in todays horror TV series and films depict something much more scary repressed female anger
If youve seen any horror movie or TV show, you know that women play a pretty prominent role: the victim.
We see them waiting for a man to save them, we see them running, bloodied and terrified, we see them tied and cut up, and we see them completely powerless at the hands of murderers. And while some movies flip the genre and its gender roles on its head (Rosemarys Baby, Carrie, Alien and Scream 4 to name a few), up until recently, the most terrifying thing about women in horror was that they were doomed to follow tired, formulaic storylines. That is, until 2014.

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.
Here are 23 - count 'em! - currently in differing stages of production...
The film: Earning Tom Hanks his first Oscar nomination, the beloved 1988 comedy drama Big saw him as Josh Baskin who, courtesy of a Zoltar machine, turns into an adult. Romance, work, and playing on a big piano follow.
It’s 2011 and we’re already tired of franchises. Well, at least the throwaway characters about to get gutted in Stab 6 are, as one of them sarcastically writes off Saw IV as “gross, not scary” and lacking “character development.” But then the scene we’re watching pulls out to reveal itself as opening scene to Stab 7, wherein Anna Paquin (who’s watching Stab 6) becomes the exact character type she complains about: “a bunch of articulate teens sit around and deconstruct horror movies as Ghost Face kills them one by one.” She scathingly notes, “It’s been done to death.” And while it might be hard to say that Wes Craven’s Scream 4, of which these movies within movies within movies are a part of, predicted the current atmosphere of franchise fatigue, it at least has the hipster-like sense of being tired of franchises before it was cool. Scream 4 was more of a response to the »

The prospect of a remake of I Saw the Devil with Adam Wingard (The Guest, You're Next) at the helm is far more compelling than the idea of Oculus helmer Mike Flanagan taking on a remake of I Know What You Did Last Summer. Not because Flanagan is a bad filmmaker or anything like that, but merely because who cares about a new I Know What You Did... moviec Scream 4 was a bust in 2011 and I Know What You Did... was riding on the original Scream's coattails, so who thinks a new one is a smart business decisionc Now, the idea of Wingard taking on Kim Jee-woon's I Saw the Devil with The Guest screenwriter Simon Barrett is a different story. The Guest begins hitting theaters this week and even with You're Next, Wingard has shown a knack for mixing small doses of dark humor within his terrifying tales, »
