When Jamie Kennedy's Randy Meeks spouted off rules of horror films in the 1996 film horror satire Scream, he forgot one: Always try to remake a successful horror film. Even without Randy's advice, the decision-makers at MTV knew that one and have green-lit a remake of Scream for the small screen, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
Ghostface may be coming to TV!

Tideland , writer-director Terry Gilliam
Time Bandits. Brazil. The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. As a writer and director, Terry Gilliam has created some of the most memorably surreal movies of the last 25 years. As a performer and animator, he was the only American member of Monty Python. And yet the sexagenarian ex-pat insists that these days he has about as much luck getting films made as Orson Welles did late in his career. While 1995's Twelve Monkeys (which Gilliam helmed but didn't pen) was a modest hit, his next picture, 1998's Fear and Lo
Saxondale's Steve Coogan
In July, British funnyman Steve Coogan signed a deal to have his Baby Cow production company create shows for NBC. One being planned is a remake of his recent BBC2 hit, Saxondale. Following a brash roadie-turned-exterminator, the series debuts stateside tonight on BBC America (11 pm/ET). The project was a welcome change for Coogan, who is best known for playing Alan Partridge in the shows Knowing Me, Knowing You and I'm Alan Partridge. TVGuide.com spoke with the Manchester native about his new creation and about the upcoming film Marie Antoinette, in which he plays Ambassadeur Mercy.

Kane Hodder as Jason Voorhees
Call me a twisted freak or a serial slayer waiting to happen, but this Insider editor loves him some Jason Voorhees. Ever since the boy who refused to drown "popped up" in the original Friday the 13th, I've been in the theater (or at the video-store checkout counter) for almost every sequel. That's why, on this day of celebrating ghouls and goblins, I sought out Kane Hodder, the man who has played Jason more than anyone else (in parts VII, VIII, Jason Goes to Hell and Jason X), to shed light on the man behind the hockey mask.
