The saga continues with another “Scream” franchise legend. Her movies grossing over $1 billion at the global box office, veteran producer Marianne Maddalena started out Wes Craven’s assistant on “Deadly Friend.” Eventually becoming producing partners, the pair formed Craven/Maddalena Films and their work sliced through Hollywood as horror movie gold. Credits include: every “Scream” film, the upcoming sixth “Scream,” “Scream: The TV Series,” “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare,” “Red Eye” with Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy, "Vampire in Brooklyn” with Eddie Murphy, “Delirium,” “The Hills Have Eyes” (2006 and 2007), “Cursed,” “Dracula 2000,” "The People Under the Stairs,” “Shocker” and “Music of the Heart,” which garnered two Oscar nominations; one for Meryl Streep as Best Actress and one for Best Song. Maddalena joins “Inspired Minds” to cover the horror genre, manifesting your dreams, her early ambitions as a film producer and discovering the iconic Ghostface mask. Special thanks: Richard Potter.
