Scream‘s making the transition from the big to the small screen, according to an announcement just made by MTV. The network has greenlit a series based on the horror franchise which brought us the Ghostface killer and is hoping to add the show to their line-up next summer.
The first film of the series was directed by Wes Craven and hit theaters back in 1996. Made on a budget of $15 million, the original Scream collected $162 million worldwide before exiting theaters. Sequels followed in 1997, 2000, and 2011 – all directed by Craven. And in fact MTV’s hoping to bring Craven back into the fold as the director of the TV series’ one-hour pilot.
According to MTV, the series will “reinvent” the horror comedy franchise.
