London: Actress Bella Thorne will star in the upcoming small screen adaptation of 1996 horror film 'Scream'.

The 17-year-old Disney star will play an updated version of the teenager Drew Barrymore from the movie, reported Contactmusic.

During a Facebook question and answer session on Thursday (11Dec14), a fan enquired whether the rumour of Thorne's involvement with the MTV series is true.

"Yes it is true. I will re-enact the famous scene of Drew Barrymore in the original series," Thorne replied.

The revamped 'Scream' series will centre around a YouTube video that goes viral and subsequently leads to deadly repercussions for a group of teens. The 'Scream' series is slated to premiere in the US in October, 2015.
