Bella Thorne is ready for her screamin' spotlight!
The bubbly 17-year-old chatted with Life & Style at the Crocs Funway Runway launch party in NYC on June 23, and talked about her upcoming role in MTV's new TV series Scream (yep, it's based off the 1996 cult classic!).

When the series premieres on Tuesday June 30, you might get a nostalgic feeling while watching Bella's onscreen performance because it's very reminiscent of the iconic role in the original film played by Drew Barrymore. So, naturally, we had to ask her about it!
"I am so humbled to be compared to Drew. She is so amazing," the actress tells the mag. "I didn’t want to think of that while I was shooting because I could never live up to that kind of amazing scene...it's an homage to it for sure." (Fun fact: Bella costarred with Drew in last year's comedy Blended!)

Though the show will honor the movie, its goal is to repurpose the horror flick to appeal to the modern teenage generation — and it's something they did incredibly well, according to Bella.
"We took the best parts of the Scream franchise and we manipulated it to fit our time era, so it’s not exactly the same, it’s very different," she says. "Social media plays such a big aspect in this one."
