Ashby stars Mickey Rourke and Nat Wolff with Emma having a supporting role. Awkward Ed Wallis (Nat Wolff) needs help fitting in and turns to his neighbor Ashby Holt (Mickey Rourke) for help. Ashby’s unforgiving brand of tough love soon tests their friendship, and it hardly helps when Ed learns that Ashby is a former CIA assassin. The film will make its debut at the Tribeca film festival in New York in April so hopefully soon will see a theatrical release (most likely limited).

The “Scream Queens” have made their official debut.
The first full-length trailer for Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Fox show was released Tuesday, after being teased at Fox’s upfront presentation last week.
Murphy confirmed during upfronts that one of the show leads, who include Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer and Skyler Samuels, will ultimately be ID’d as the show’s killer who’s been wrecking havoc on a college campus.
“At least one character will be killed off in every episode,” he said.
Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande also recur in the hotly anticipated horror-comedy anthology series — and make their “Scream Queens” debut in the trailer (watch below).
The show 15-episode season is slated to premiere in Sept., airing Tuesdays on Fox’s fall schedule.
“Scream Queens” is exec produced by Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Dante Di Loreto.
Another new Scream Queens teaser has been released! This one features many actresses from the show and gives an idea on what the show is about!
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.
Emma is featured on 2 posters just released for promo of Scream Queens! The show will be premiering in September on FOX! Check out full versions in the gallery!
