Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Not too long ago MTV released the lightning fast teaser video for the upcoming SCREAM TV Series and then during the Movie Awards, they unveiled very first official trailer to the world. The trailer (see below) offers a hint of insight into what is to come and the show appears to have a slightly different feel to it than the films. As the new series approaches more news continues to come in.
TRUE BLOOD star Amelia Rose Blaire has officially joined the cast of SCREAM The TV Series. Blaire's character will be "Piper Shay, the smart, quirky host of a wildly popular podcast who comes to town to investigate the recent deaths."
Blaire joins a cast made up of Bex Taylor-Klaus, Willa Fitzgerald, John Karna, Connor Weil, Carlson Young, Bella Thorne and Amadeus Serafini. Jamie Travis is the director of the pilot.
Back in November, MTV’s senior vice president and head of scripted development Mina Lefevre, had this to say about the new design for the mask:
“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.”
“Scream was incredibly iconic, but we wanted to reinvent that for TV while of course keeping all the main elements that made it so iconic, including a mask, but also the soapy teen stories, pop culture humor, the scares and the killer,” she says. “We’re tonally walking that line, yet delivering the scares in a significant way. The mask was a big discussion creatively. We wanted to get a nod and a wink to what the original was, but we definitely wanted to make it more on par with what horror is now, which is darker.”
Synopsis for the series:
"After a cyber-bullying incident results in a brutal murder, the shocking violence stirs up memories of a killing spree from the past that has haunted some, intrigued others and maybe just inspired a new killer. A group of teens – with two old friends struggling to reconnect at its heart – become lovers, enemies, suspects, targets and victims of a killer who’s out for blood."
SCREAM the series comes to television June 30th on MTV.
