Queen Latifah To Retool MTV’s “Scream”

Queen Latifah is coming onboard as an executive producer on MTV’s “Scream” as the series gets a top-to-bottom retooling for its third season.

Brett Matthews (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Supernatural”) will take over as showrunner for the new six-episode season which will boast a whole new cast and storyline.

The move is not unexpected as the series drew only half its first season audience during its second season run. The new season will incorporate producers like Latifah, Shakim Compere and Yaneley Arty alongside numerous returning ones like Harvey and Bob Weinstein. The late Wes Craven will retain an executive producer credit.
