‘Scream’ Trailer — Bella Thorne Introduces MTV Hit At MTV Movie Awards
Here’s what we know about the show. The killings will begin with a viral YouTube video (a great way to update the original 1996 Kevin Williamson/Wes Craven flick), but will begin to spread through Lakewood and bring up the scary past of the town.
Bella confirmed that she will be playing the iconic role Drew Barrymore took on, however we know that that part doesn’t exactly live long.
Other stars of the show include Willa Fitzgerald, who will play a popular yet shy Emma, Bex Taylor-Klaus, playing an artistic Audrey; Connor Weil as the jock, Will, Carlson Young, as the rich girl Brooke, John Karna as the geek, Noah and Amadeus Serafini, who plays the new guy in town, Kieran.
What’s With The Mask?
You may have notice one thing very different is the mask — why isn’t it the original?
“It’s a darker, almost more grounded, evolved version of the mask,” Mina Lefevre, MTV’s SVP and head of scripted development said. “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.”
However, you can still expect homage to the original film.
“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,” Mina added. 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.”
