Ghostface may not appear in MTV's Scream series

If you can't do something right, don't do it all. Is that a saying? It should be. When I heard there was going to be a TV series based on the SCREAM franchise, I wasn't surprised and I wasn't too happy either. I figured it would likely be a lot of hot teens saying dumb things and getting killed every so often. Something I couldn’t see holding up every week, at least in my house. Well, it turns out I don’t know what this series is going to be and after reading this news concerning the possible absence of Ghostface (aka the reason for screaming) I can’t imagine any of us know what’s going on.

Ghostface.co.uk reached out to R.J. Tolbert of Fun World, the company that owns the rights to the Ghostface mask and he said:

“Please note, that I had been in communication with TWC regarding this and they have informed me, that as of now, and during the initial launch that GHOST FACE® is not involved in the new format. They also indicated that because of this direction, it does not mean, that Ghost Face® will not be involved at a later date.  So, there is still a question, to the question.  However, as of now, there is no involvement.”

No Ghostface will turn off a lot of potential viewers before this show even gets starts. Then there is the fact that having Ghostface(s) running around killing people wasn’t original anyways; there are four movies that did that already. I don’t know why this show is called Scream, why it's happening, or what it's going to be.

Here's another excerpt from R.J. Tolbert:

“I’m telling you now, as we get closer to Halloween, because of the many inquiries, we have had from our RETAILERS, as well as the FANS from all over the world.  In addition, ——- we have received pretty harsh notes, some addressed specifically to me, implying that Fun World and/or me, is responsible for the SERIES not having GHOST FACE® ———- nothing could be further from the truth.  We believe, SCREAM is GHOST FACE, and GHOST FACE® is Scream.  However, while GHOST FACE® 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 T.V. SHOW without GHOST FACE®. 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 Ghost Face®.  Never say Never.”

As of right now, the Scream TV series hasn’t received an official order just yet, so at least there is potential for death pretty soon. Will you be watching this series with or without Ghostface?
