Ghostface Dropped from SCREAM TV Show

Further tarnishing the developing SCREAM TV series’ already questionable validity, it has emerged the show will not feature saga mascot, the Ghostface Killer.

During an interview, RJ Torbert, the owner of the rights to the look of Ghostface, stated that The Weinstein Company had informed him that “as of now and during the initial launch, Ghostface is not involved in the new format. They also indicated that because of this direction, it does not mean that Ghostface will not be involved at a later date.”

Torbert also stated that “We believe SCREAM is Ghostface, and Ghostface is SCREAM. However, while Ghostface is owned by Fun World, the SCREAM motion picture franchise is owned by The Weinstein Company, and it is their option to film a movie or TV show without Ghostface. Regardless, we wish them the best of luck, and I’m sure SCREAM fans will check out the series. Who knows what will happen in the future regarding the series and Ghostface? Never say never.

In other words, something you might have been looking forward to has now potentially been spoiled by Harvey Weinstein before it’s even arrived. Sounds familiar.

Granted, SCREAM is a little different from most horror franchises in that instead of an iconic maniac, it’s driven by self-aware postmodern irony, as well the relative novelty of some of its protagonists actually surviving one film to the next, but nobody would deny that Ghostface is the most recognisable aspect of the franchise and most enduring reference point, so many fans are likely to be disappointed that the show’s killers won’t don the costume.
