Scream TV show spoilers: classic scene will be recreated

MTV’s Scream TV series will recreate at least one classic scene from Wes Craven’s film

Scream4We’ve heard quite a lot recently about how MTV’s Scream TV series will differentiate itself from Wes Craven’s movies, but it looks like the pilot will adhere pretty closely to the film for one major scene.

Bloody Disgusting confirmed reports that the pilot episode will be recreating the classic Drew Barrymore scene from the first film, with the newly cast Bella Thorne going through the scary movie quiz.
