Even I am getting quite fed up with this Scream fiasco and I am one of the biggest fans of the fourth Scream.
Yes, the 4th did not make as much money that was expected, but so what! Neither did the original and by the time you take the DVD sales into account you will have a very happy studio because Scream does sell well on the home market.
Now this logic has entered the mind of director Wes Craven who in an interview with Movieweb all but admitted that a Scream 5 will be made!
“Yes. The odds are that there will be [Scream 5]. It is something that Bob Weinstein wants to do. He tends to do what he wants to do. So I am inclined to think that there will be [another]”.
As for directing Wes said these words, “I don’t know,” he said. “My contract gives me first look. If they show me something that is really wonderful? Of course I will be a part of it.”.
The interesting part is Kevin Williamson, who is going to be busy with his new FOX TV serial killer thriller. He too like Craven is signed up to write the 5th but having need to pull out of the 4th (even though it was his script), maybe Williamson feels its the time to move away from the saga that he created all those years ago.
Make no mistake, there will be a new Scream film, which delights me, because I feel there is more room for this franchise yet!
