We have a newly debuted image from the Scream series that shows what the Ghostface mask will look like. It’s definitely different than what I was expecting but shows vague similarities to the mask used in the film franchise. Perhaps its different than what I was expecting because original reports had said the mask would be fleshy and this is definitely anything but.
EW debuted the image (which is featured below) and also delivered some explanation from the series’ creative team. “The [original] mask is so iconic,” said series executive producer Jaime Paglia. “If you were to have that mask in a television series, but you weren’t following any of the characters [from the original], I believe that would be misleading the audience.”
“It evokes some of the Jason hockey mask and the white Michael Myers mask, but it’s still first and foremost evocative of the Scream mask,” offers executive producer Jill Blotevogel. “It’s sort of a reinvention while also paying homage.”
“The new mask is cool and scary and takes the series into a new direction,” explained Wes craven. “It also ties into the story, which I won’t give away.”
After years of being discussed, the show is finally making its way to television on June 30th. In the meantime, check out the new mask below. The program will follow a group of high school students who are being targeted by an unknown killer. The cast will include Willa Fitzgerald (Alpha House), Amelia Rose Blaire (True Blood), Bex Taylor-Klaus (The Killing), John Karna, Connor Weil (Sharknado), Bobby Campo (The Final Destination) Carlson Young and Amadeus Serafini. The program also stars Joel Gretsch (Push) and Tracy Middendorf (New Nightmare).
Jill Blotevogel (Harper’s Island) is serving as the series’ executive producer and showrunner; she also rewrote the original script by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin. Wes Craven is an additional executive producer alongside Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena, and Cathy Konrad. Harvey and Bob Weinstein will also executive produce.
