I Am Michael stars James Franco and Zachary Quinto with Emma having a supporting role. A gay activist and magazine founder (James Franco) is saved from his homosexuality after turning to God, and later becomes a Christian pastor. The film is currently making its debut at film festivals so hopefully soon will see a theatrical release (most likely limited).

All hell is about to break loose on the Wallace University campus when, exactly 20 years after a mysterious tragedy, a devil-clad killer begins to target the sisters of Kappa House. The super-charged comedy-horror series is a modern take on the classic whodunit with a killer cast. With at least one casualty each week until the mystery is solved, anyone could be the next victim – or the murderer.
SCREAM QUEENS PREMIERES TUESDAY, SEPT. 22 on FOX

Emma Roberts had to bare quite a bit to star in the latest #AerieREAL campaign (which portrays un-retouched models wearing the line’s lingerie), but it wasn’t stripping down to her skivvies that worried her the most.
“I definitely have a complex about being pale because I’ve been made fun of my whole life, so I was nervous about that,” the actress, 24, told PEOPLE Thursday after the photo shoot for Aerie’s Fall 2015 campaign.
“When I was a kid, everyone would be like, ‘Your legs are so pale! I can’t believe you’re wearing a dress!’ And I would get so embarrassed,” Roberts adds of her longtime insecurity. “I would get spray tans, and I look back at those photos now, and I just think: Oh my goodness, you’re orange. I would tell my younger self to stop spray-tanning so much. Just own it.”
It has been announced that Scream Queens will premiere with a 2-hour special on Tuesday, September 22! Click ‘More’ below for an awesome review from E! News about the pilot episode and Emma’s peformance! Also according to zap2it.com Emma could make an appearance on AHS: Hotel at the end of the season…
A familiar face will be checking into “American Horror Story: Hotel.” Emma Roberts, who starred in the “Coven” and “Freak Show” seasons of the anthology series will return for the next installment of “AHS.”
Creator Ryan Murphy spilled the news to Zap2it in a group interview. “She’s still going to do a couple episodes of ‘Horror Story’ at the end, I think,” he says. He adds, “She comes at the end. She comes and she has a great thing with Evan Peters at the end.”
Roberts will jump to “AHS” after she finishes shooting the first season of Murphy’s “Scream Queens,” which wraps in early October.
Pairing her with Peters should prove to be an interesting twist on the end of the season. After dating since 2012, the engaged couple have reportedly ended their relationship.
Emma Roberts and Evan Peters have reportedly split, ending their engagement. Gossip Cop is seeking confirmation.
According to JustJared, the longtime couple and “American Horror Story” co-stars amicably broke up. A source is quoted as telling the outlet, “Their three years together just ran its course. They have so many great memories together but couldn’t make it work in the end. The break-up was amicable – there was no drama whatsoever. Emma and Evan are even still friends!”
Prior to their December 2013 engagement, Roberts was arrested after an alleged domestic violence altercation with Peters. At the time, reps told Gossip Cop it was an “unfortunate incident and misunderstanding,” and that the couple was “working together to move past it.” Six months later, they made their debut as an engaged couple at the January 2014 Golden Globes.
In January of this year, a false tabloid story wrongly claimed the colleagues had broken up, after Roberts was spotted without her engagement ring. A rep for Roberts dismissed the report as untrue, and it was pointed out that she sometimes doesn’t wear it publicly. But the actress was photographed without her engagement ring again in recent weeks, prompting new rumors of a split. Gossip Cop actually inquired about the speculation earlier this week, but did not hear back. We have now reached out again. What do you think of Roberts and Evans calling it quits?
They are young, it’s their life, what’s meant to be will be…

Below is Emma’s interview about Scream Queens with Entertainment Weekly…
American Horror Story actress Emma Roberts, who has appeared on the Coven and Freak Show seasons of the FX series, is reuniting with AHS creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk for this fall’s new horror comedy Scream Queens. EW debuted the first images from the series last week and revealed the super secretive plot which involves a masked killer stalking the Kappa sorority at fictional Wallace University. Roberts plays the president of the sorority and talked to EW about the highly anticipated new Fox series.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What made you want to be part of Scream Queens?
EMMA ROBERTS: I’m the biggest Ryan Murphy fan. I mean Glee, American Horror Story. When we were more than half way through Freak Show, he called me and he was like, “I have this new show. It’s kind of Heathers meets Halloween and I want you to be the lead.” I was like, “Excuse me? That sounds like my dream.” He told me more about it and more about the character. I had just come off doing American Horror Story: Coven, which was my favorite season of the show and so fun to be a part of. Scream Queens definitely has a little bit of that Coven girl-power vibe which I love and a lot of the humor that Coven had. He told me more specifically about Chanel Oberlin. She’s the president of Kappa house and she’s the queen bee on campus. She’s very fashionable and very to the point. She’s a bit of a mean girl but in a very funny way. Ian Brad and Ryan do humor so well. I remember reading the script for the first time and I was literally laughing out loud. I had to put the script down. It was just one of those things I was so flattered they wanted me to be a part of it. I’ve been wanting to do more comedy and it’s definitely a very comedic show—a dark comedy, but still a comedy.
Is she like your Coven character, Madison Montgomery?
I would love to see Chanel and Madison go head to head. I honestly don’t know who would win.
I heard Chanel’s godfather is Karl Lagerfeld.
Yes. I want to be Chanel. The clothes are amazing. Actually a lot of the clothes are vintage Chanel. I already have dibs on half my wardrobe. Everything is very pastel. Everyone has sort of certain colors they wear. I remember seeing the set for the first time and I was just in shock. It’s like every girl’s dream. The sorority house looks like a Barbie dream house.

Getting into the right college can be murder. But on Fox’s horror-comedy Scream Queens, which has been picked up to series for a fall debut, it’s surviving college that’s the real life-or-death challenge. From Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, Queens is an homage to the slasher movies of the ’80s. (Or as Murphy puts it, “Heathers meets Friday the 13th.”) The series, about a killer stalking a college sorority, features an all-star cast including Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Keke Palmer, Oliver Hudson, Abigail Breslin, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande.
Like all of Murphy’s projects, Scream Queens has been cloaked in secrecy…until now. EW has your exclusive first look at the fall’s funniest thrill ride.
EW: Where did the idea for this show come from?
RYAN MURPHY: Brad and Ian and I, all three of us, were always obsessed with the ’80s/early ’90s slasher genre that was always about young people and always about coming of age. So we loved that and we decided to sort of be inspired by that idea. That was sort of the impetus of it. It’s sort of the idea of what would happen if you put something like Heathers meets Friday the 13th to those genre pictures like Massacre on Sorority Row, that early-to-late ’80s exploitation horror thing.
I really like the idea of doing a comedy and doing sort of anthological comedy. What I love about it is when it’s funny, it’s funny. And when it’s scary, it’s scary. One thing too that I hear all the time from women about American Horror Story is, “I love the idea of it but it’s too scary and I can’t watch it.” So the question we asked is, “How do we keep it scary but write something for that audience?” It doesn’t have the gore of American Horror Story but it certainly still has the scares.
The other thing it’s inspired by is it’s a real murder mystery whodunit. In the very first episode you meet all the characters and then the killings start happening on this college campus. Every character in the piece has the motivation to be the killer. So when you’re watching it, part of the fun is, Okay who did it? It’s not revealed until the last episode when literally the mask of the Red Devil, who is the killer, comes off and we say, Boom here’s your killer.
It’s also a show about the sorority/fraternity system in our country and what’s happening with that so it’s a satire about that.
What’s the basic plot of Scream Queens?
It opens in a flashback to 1995 at the sorority where something horrible happens. It’s a mystery that goes unsolved. Flash forward 20 years to today, and it looks like someone is out for revenge. Something horrible happened to a pledge and on the anniversary of that crime, someone is out for vengeance.
Who does Emma Roberts play?
Emma Roberts is Chanel, who’s the president of Kappa Sorority. She’s very funny and very ruthless. All her life all she’s wanted to do is be president of Kappa and have this great boyfriend and rule the roost. She’s very fashionable and very ruthless.
I love Emma. It was written for her. She’s super funny.
