I guess a horse isn’t really considered dead until you start beating it repeatedly.
After Scream 4 brought back the franchise to mostly indifference and only $38 mil in box office revenue, the team at MTV is now looking into launching a TV series based off the slasher saga.
No word on plot or anything, but I really think the only way that this could work is short, BBC styled seasons, where you spread out the mystery over say, eight episodes.
Then again, I really thought their repurposing Teen Wolf was an awful idea, and that’s on its second season, so maybe they know something I don’t.
No word on any involvement of the original creators Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson, or of any of the series’s many many cast members.
