Janet Leigh, Psycho

Toronto Star/ZUMA Press

Calling all hotties with strong vocal cords.

VH1 has announced plans for a reality competition that will focus on finding a suitable unknown actress for an upcoming role in a new Lionsgate-produced horror flick.

Ideally, Scream Queens is looking for the next Janet Leigh, or at least the next Jamie Lee Curtis, although what it will probably find is someone who just looks really good in a dirty tanktop.

Meanwhile, the studio, which is also responsible for the Saw franchise, is promising a "major" role, not necessarily a "starring" role, for the series winner.

Meaning, whoever comes out on top after eight episodes could end up getting the Paris Hilton-in-House of Wax treatment rather than be the last heroine standing. Or, like Leigh, take part in one of the most memorable murder sequences in movie history.

But you've got to start somewhere, right? Scream Queens is slated to premiere this fall.
