How are they going to pull this one off?

MTV has announced that they’ve given the green light to a television pilot based on the Scream films. Written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven, the Scream films are best known for skewering horror movie tropes as well as literally skewering attractive teens. In a news release, the network said it was working with Dimension to “reinvent the successful horror comedy franchise that spawned three sequels and unleashed ‘Ghostface’ to a legion of unsuspecting fans.” While the network is still speaking with writers, Dimension is still working on a deal to have Craven return to direct the one-hour pilot.

I’d imagine that the series would be presented as a season long mystery as the audience tries to figure out the identity of the masked killer (or killers) that is terrorizing the student body. However, I’m not sure the format can sustain that concept with more and more of the cast being killed off each episode. The Scream movies have always managed to keep it fresh and subvert expectations, so let’s hope the eventual series will be able to do the same. At the very least, let’s hope it’s better executed than Teen Wolf. (NY Times)

Mind-Blowing News: They’re Doing A ‘Scanners’ TV Series http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/mind-blowing-news-theyre-doing-a-scanners-tv-series/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/mind-blowing-news-theyre-doing-a-scanners-tv-series/#comments Fri, 22 Jul 2011 19:26:27 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=221530 Minds will be blown!

David Cronenberg’s scifi/horror/head-explodey movie Scanners is famous even to people who haven’t seen it (like me, yet) for its scene of a guy’s head exploding. Perhaps, if we’re lucky, they’ll be more to the upcoming Scanners TV series being developed by Dimension Films.

Horror-remake-master Alexandre Aja has been signed to executive produce and “possibly direct” the pilot episode. Apparently the original plan was for a big-screen remake, but with genre TV like The Walking Dead making head-exploding amounts of cash for AMC, this was re-jiggered into a small-screen series. I wonder if this show’s success could lead to more Cronenberg TV series – I’d just love to see a show based on Crash– no, not that Crash, the other one. (Deadline)
