There’s a lot of love out there for slasher series SCREAM and whether or not you liked the recent movies, there’s still plenty of excitement there when a new movie is released. So it was no surprise that Twitter was alive and trending last week with the news that production has wrapped on the latest instalment, Scream 5, along with confirmation from creator and producer, Kevin Williamson, of the film’s official title. Wait for it….
Okay, so it’s not really that creative but seems to be taken a leaf out of Blumhouse’s Halloween book by naming the sequel exactly the same as the original. Personally, I’m not a fan and think they’ve missed a trick by not naming it 5CREAM but nevertheless, it’s only a name and what matters is if the film will be any good!
That’s a wrap on Scream, which I’m excited to announce is the official title of the next film! Nearly 25 years ago, when I wrote Scream and Wes Craven brought it to life, I could not have imagined the lasting impact it would have on you, the fans. (1/3) pic.twitter.com/RCuhVUclG4
