Spyglass Media to Produce New ‘Scream’ Film

Just in from Deadline, a fifth entry in the legendary Scream franchise is in early development by Spyglass Media.

There are no details as to who will be writing or directing for the new entry which comes after the passing of franchise creator Wes Craven in 2015.

The Scream film franchise began with the original film in 1996, followed by Scream 2 in 1997, Scream 3 in 2000 and Scream 4 in 2011. The series was based around the life and the mishaps of Sydney Prescott played by Neve Campbell, who was stalked by the fearsome Ghost Face killer who wore the same mask but always by a different person. Other regular cast members include David Arquette as police officer Dwight “Dewey” Riley and Courtney Cox as news reporter Gale Weathers. read more

Attend a Halloween Party at Stu’s House from ‘Scream’!

Wow! If you’re on the West Coast and have nothing to do on Halloween night, or if you love Scream enough to cancel your already-made plans, you can attend a costume party at the house that was used for the party at Stu’s house at the end of Wes Craven’s 1996 blockbuster film.

Titled “Screamoween”, the organizers, Nate Ragon and Anthony Masi, apparently first did an event at the privately owned home last year titled “Scream Comes Home”. The event last year went off so well that the duo received tons of requests to do it all over again which led to them working out a deal with the homeowners to do a 2019 event at the Tomales, CA home. read more

‘Scream’ Television Series Gets New Channel, New Release Date, New Trailer

Things went quiet for a while there on the status of MTV’s third-season reboot of their Scream television series. It turns out there was a lot going on behind the scenes, and we now know a whole lot more about the project as it nears closer to completion.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that the franchise has moved from MTV to VH1 (both channels are owned by Viacom) and the next entry in the television series will now be called Scream: Resurrection. Instead of running thirty-minute episodes weekly, the entire season will run in three two-hour intervals from July 8th to July 10th. Such a rapid pace will surely maintain the momentum of the franchise’s signature “whodunnit” formula. read more

Kevin Williamson’s ‘Tell Me a Story’ Trailer Released

The new trailer for Kevin Williamson’s upcoming CBS All Access series, Tell Me a Story, was just released and it is definitely reminiscent of the stories that made him famous in the 1990’s.  In Williamson’s own words (from the TCA Conference) “This reminds me a lot of my early days. It took me back to another place.”

The writer/director best known for ScreamI Know What You Did Last Summer, The Faculty, and Dawson’s Creek, appears to be venturing back into the slasher-thriller territory with his new series, which is supposedly based on classic fairy tales (and also based on an Argentinian anthology  series).  The focus on young, attractive twenty-somethings and mystery is readily apparent in the trailer (as well as a lot of sex and drug use, which I guess I missed the last time I read Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel and The Three Little Pigs). read more

Tyler Posey of ‘Teen Wolf’ to Join Cast of MTV’s ‘Scream’

Teen Wolf may have just finished up its run on MTV, but that doesn’t mean Tyler Posey is off the network! TV Line reports that he has signed on to star in MTV’s upcoming Season Three reboot of its Scream television series. The announcement comes less than 24 hours after the season finale of Teen Wolf aired.

On Teen Wolf, Posey played Scott McCall, a hunky werewolf boy with looks to match his bite. Although casting announcements for Scream have tended to come with short bios and character names for each new performer, info on Posey’s character is noticeably absent from the announcement. This either means his role will be more mysterious than the other recent announcements, or that his addition to the cast is so fresh that the network hasn’t had time to put together an official character bio, but they wanted to get the word out to take advantage of the hype surrounding the conclusion of Teen Wolf. read more

Keke Palmer of ‘Scream Queens’ Fame Joins the Cast of MTV’s ‘Scream’

Scream Queens may have been cancelled, but that doesn’t mean Keke Palmer is done screamin’! Variety reports that the up and coming actress, known for her role as Zayday Williams in Scream Queens, will be returning to horror television with a role in MTV’s rebooted third season of Scream.

Here’s what we know about her character so far:

“Palmer will play Kym, a bold and beautiful social activist with a big heart and zero patience for suffering fools.”

Palmer’s character Zayday shared many of these same qualities to the delight of the Scream Queens‘ fans; so it makes sense that Palmer will be taking on this kind of role in Scream. We’ve previously reported that the third season of the show will have an all-new cast, storyline, and creative direction under the guidance of producer, Queen Latifah, and new showrunner, Brett Matthews. In addition to Keke Palmer, the show will also star  Jessica Sula, Giullian Yao Gioiello, Tyga and C.J. Wallace. read more
