Wes Craven has no immediate plans to make SCREAM 5. Find out
why after the jump.
The SCREAM director spoke with EW,
and had this to say about a potential sequel: “I’m taking the summer off,” he
comments. “I directed and produced, and my wife [Iya Labunka] produced, both
SCREAM 4 and the previous film, MY SOUL TO TAKE, and they were both very
difficult films. So we just decided, ‘You know what? We’re going to spend the
summer someplace nice and not think about film for a while.’ ”
As horror fans know, SCREAM 4 (which came out April 15)
received mixed reviews and didn’t perform as well as expected domestically at
the box office. However, the sequel was more successful overseas, which led
SCREAM series executive producer Harvey Weinstein to announce that he was
“sure” Craven would helm a fifth entry in the franchise.
But don’t discount the director returning to the slasher
saga. Craven confirms that the Weinstein Company is contractually obligated to
give him first dibs on SCREAM 5 and that it is “entirely possible” he would
make another movie in the series “if they get a script I’m interested in
directing. The best situation would be if Kevin [Williamson, SCREAM screenwriter]
would come back.”
And so it goes...
