Scream TV Pilot Gets The Green Light At MTV


Few franchises have more lasting power than a great horror series. For some reason, the genre just happens to lend itself really well for reboots, to varying degrees of quality, of course. Where will Scream fall among the ranks of reboots and sequels? After a (relatively) recent fourth installment to the film franchise, which brought star Neve Cambell back to the role of Sidney Prescott in 2011, MTV is looking to move forward with a TV version. The network once better associated with music, has given the green light to a one-hour pilot that will reinvent the horror-comedy Scream for the small screen. (MTV, Scream, TV)

On one hand I want to say I hate this idea...On the other, I'm moderately intrigued. I mean they've done a pretty damn good job with Teen Wolf.

Since this is happening, I'd rather they started over with all the original characters (obviously the actors won't happen)and then they could start the series over again and we could get Randy and Stu back.

My thoughts..

Please no.

that is a good idea, however, if we do the characters all over again ..we already know the killer..and in scream movies one integral part is the mystery behind the killings. the audiences might only watch it for purposes of character development or unless they change some plot details.

I have a problem with old classic horror series never being able to Rest in Peace; as in letting the series be, without anymore remakes or movies based on them.

Scream movies are classic Horror films that I personally love, especially the first film. I just hope that they don´t keep ruining the series, like the fourth film was complete trash...

they should have stopped making this since part 2, there is nothing left to be said and done, the third film was the weakest among the bunch in my opinion.

I'm intrigued, but I think it fits as a movie franchise more.

i'm not sure how they could stretch something like this out into a series, i mean, a big part of it was always the whodunit aspect, unless it's some sort of anthology show with a different scenario every episode.
or will it be one killer throughout the series.

either way, i'd be interested in seeing the direction they take.

They may go for that 'pretty little liars' aspect by hiding the killer and mixing it with heavy mystery and drama.
aDDicteD  +   945d ago
i think you might be right, there would be a lot of aspects that would be clever distraction but i do think it is just for prolonging purposes when they can make it more straightforward.

i agree that this kind of film deserve more of a film treatment, i dont think a tv series will do it good and it will be anti climatic and slow in pacing, well unless they have numerous characters with personalities to watch out for, i hope i am wrong.
