"What's your favorite scary movie?" The cult classic thriller Scream is on it's way to becoming a MTV television series.Wes Craven returned to the Scream series in 2011 to create Scream 4 now Craven is back to direct the new pilot version of MTV's "Scream". Craven previously direct amazing horror films such as A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Hills Have Eyes, and The Last House on the Left. Now he is returning to the director's chair to film the TV pilot of MTV's "Scream". The series is reportedly to deal with the “rules of surviving a slasher film” that featured heavily in the original movies.
TVLine unveiled the following breakdown of four leading characters:
Harper Duval: A 16-year-old beauty “who’s a little too introverted and intellectual to be a social butterfly” but has nevertheless been anointed by the popular crowd to be one of their own. “She feels guilty that she has drifted away from former best friend Audrey,” but at least she’s got a Gilmore Girls-esque relationship with mom Maggie to keep her sane.
Audrey Jesen: Haper’s former BFF is described as “the bi-curious daughter of a Lutheran pastor” who’s “more arresting-looking than pretty.” This “artsy loner” dreams of being a filmmaker and shares a close bond with tech genius Noah.
Noah Foster: Audrey’s closest confidante is “creative, brilliant and tech-savvy enough to be the next Steve Jobs.” Lucky for him, he’s got a great sense of humor (“a la John Cusack in his teen prime”) that helps him navigate the halls of his high school. What’s more, Noah possesses “an encyclopedic knowledge of books, films, TV, apps, etc.”
Margaret “Maggie” Duval: Harper’s mom, in her early to mid-40s, is the town’s medical examiner, “a grown-up science geek who plays down her beauty.” Maggie spends a lot of her time trying to make up for the fact that Harper’s dad abandoned them. Oh, and she’s harboring “a dark secret from her past.”
Filming is expected to begin this summer!
