The Iconic character of Ghostface, which literally sold the scream movie franchise to film fans and was very much the Freddie Kruger of 90's horror cinema will not feature in the planned television spin-off series.

The Iconic character of Ghostface, which literally sold the scream movie franchise to film fans and was very much the Freddie Kruger of 90’s horror cinema will not feature in the planned television spin-off series.

This news was broken by Ghostface designer RJ Torbert.

“I had been in communication with The Weinstein Company regarding this, and they have informed me – that as of now and during the initial launch – that Ghostface is not involved in the new format,” he said in a Q&A (via Ghostface.co.uk).

“They also indicated that because of this direction, it does not mean that Ghostface will not be involved at a later date.”

Torbert added: “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.

“Who knows what will happen in the future regarding the series and Ghostface. Never say never.”

The pilot for the television show begins with a youtube video going viral and being quickly followed up by a string of grizzly murders.
Wes Craven, who directed all the  ‘Scream’ movies, is also in the director’s chair for the spinoff, which has been penned by ‘Harper’s Island ‘writer Jill Blotevogel.

Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna and Carlson Young have been cast in the project.
