Horror classic Scream to be rebooted as a TV series
Horror classic Scream is to be brought back as a TV series in 2015, producers have announced.
The 1996 horror flick, which starred Neve Campbell and David Arquette, grossed over $170 million at the box office and spawned three sequels, including 2011's Scream 4.
The 10-episode series will air on MTV in October 2015 and will star Willa Fitzgerald as Emma Duvall, Bex Taylor Klaus as Audrey, John Karna as Noah Foster, Connor Weil as Will, Amadeus Serafini as Kieran Wilcox, Carlson Young as Brooke Maddox, Tracey Middendorf as Maggie and Joel Gretsch as Sheriff Clark Hudson, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Scream director Wes Craven will executive produce the series along with Bob and Harvey Weinstein.
The original Scream series featured a killer named Ghostface on the loose, however, that character is presently not scheduled to appear in the new series.
FunWorld's R.J. Torbert, who holds the rights to the Ghostface character, said when asked about the new series: "GHOST FACE® is not involved in the new format ... it does not mean, that Ghost Face® will not be involved at a later date. So, there is still a question, to the question. However, as of now, there is no involvement."
