Wes Craven Talks Scream on MTV

Wes Craven Talks Scream on MTVSo, we told you a while back that MTV was looking to turn Wes Craven's Scream franchise into a television show. Today the man himself spoke a bit about the project and his possible involvement in it.

A lot of you have asked about the Scream TV series. It’s true I’ve been approached. My response was, it would depend on the script… If they have a great script/concept, it could be fun. If not, not,” Tweeted Craven regarding whether or not he would direct the pilot episode. I guess the possible scribes over at MTV have their work cut out for them.

Produced with Dimension Films, MTV is currently in search of writers for the one-hour project while Scream director Wes Craven is in discussions to direct the pilot. Should "Scream" receive a series order, it would be slated for a summer 2014 launch and would join current scripted offerings "Teen Wolf" (also adapted from a film franchise) and "Awkward."

So what do you guys think? Something to scream about or no?

I really don't see this working as a weekly show. Would we get a weekly whodunit? Or would it be a season-long arch? Either way, it just doesn't seem feasible. Just let this franchise die already...

It worked for Harper's Island.

It did for a few episodes before becoming really tedious. And the reveal of who and why just wasn't worth it. All season for THAT? Not worth it. It would be the same with "Scream." Maybe if the season was short, 6 episodes or so, then it might work, but I still don't think so. Hopefully, I'm wrong, because I'll still watch it. I just can't help myself...

The reveals of who and why were far more tedious in the 'Scream' movies.
