Playing Bella Thorne Dishes on MTV's 'Scream': 'We Took Just the Right Amount of the Movie'

Ready for a new Scream? MTV is sure hoping you are!

The very first footage of its highly-anticipated reboot of the super-successful Scream film franchise debuted during Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, and we had to ask star Bella Thorne all about it on the blue carpet.

Thorne plays Nina Patterson, the unlucky first victim in the new Scream series – a role Drew Barrymore played perfectly in the 1996 original.

“It’s cool. It’s definitely awesome,” Thorne told ET’s Nischelle Turner of stepping into Barrymore’s shoes.

If diehard Scream fans were worried about the small-screen version being a complete departure from the films, Thorne promises the best parts are still intact.

“I think we took just the right amount of the movie into the TV show,” she said. “It’s not exactly the same, which is great. You don’t want to see the same thing over again.”

The trailer showed Thorne’s character under duress and screaming a lot, something viewers should get used to seeing on the show.

And since it’s MTV, there's going to be a lot of skin.

“I’m showing as much skin as I’ve ever shown on a TV show before!” Thorne said.
