Scream

The 1996 horror flick Scream is making a comeback — but not on the big screen. MTV is currently developing a TV series inspired by the Scream franchise, TVLine reports.

The project is being spearheaded by former MTV execs Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley, who are reportedly looking for someone to write the pilot.
