Horror Movie Franchise Headed to Television TVLine

One of the most successful horror movie franchises in recent years is headed to television, reports, with MTV working on an adaptation of the “Scream” movies as a weekly series.

Former MTV executives Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley are overseeing the project under their DiGa banner and are searching for a writer to work on a pilot, the story reports. It’s not clear whether the films’ driving forces Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven will be involved the TV series.

The four "Scream" movies have tallied $500 million in sales globally, although the most recent film grossed a disappointing $40 million domestically.
