Scream TV Series Gets First Trailer On MTV
MTV has revealed the first trailer for its upcoming TV adaptation of the 90s cult horror franchise, Scream.
“Everyone has secrets. Everyone tells lies. Everyone is fair game,” threatens the narration, accompanying images of disembodied heads in hot tubs, scalps in boxes, and hot girls filming sex tapes. What more could we ask for?
Disney alumnus Bella Thorne fills Drew Barrymore’s shoes in the Scream TV series, taking on her character of Casey. Meanwhile, Willa Fitzgerald (Royal Pains, Alpha House) plays Emma Duvall, Bex Taylor-Klaus (Arrow, The Killing) is Aubrey Jensen, and Carlson Young (Key and Peele, Pretty Little Liars) is Brooke Maddox.
And what about the iconic Ghostface, you ask? Due to ownership issues, the film franchise’s defining killer will not feature in the Scream TV series to begin with.
Ghostface designer RJ Torbert has said: “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”.
“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. Who knows what will happen in the future regarding the series and Ghostface. Never say never,” he continued.
Can Scream really be Scream without Ghostface? We’ll withhold our judgment til the Scream TV series hits US screens on June 30.
After the very enjoyable My Super Psycho Sweet 16 films, we’re looking forward to MTV’s next ‘stab’ at teen horror!
