Last we heard, MTV was trying to figure out how to make a television series out of Scream. Today comes update that that was too hard.

Harvey Weinstein spoke to the press to let them know that the MTV series will be completely separate from the original series and will probably have supernatural elements. Hey, I love supernatural elements as much as anybody but they don't belong in the world of Scream. No twerking ghosts! This show should focus on a) presenting a compelling mystery centered around a grounded, masked killer, and b) making fun of The Vampire Diaries. Keep it simple, dummies.

At any rate, this is just Harvey Weinstein's update. It's not official, so let's hope that Weinstein is lying. As if a Hollywood producer would ever lie. (/Film)
