After his troubled participation in Scream 4, screenwriter Kevin Williamson seemed to have dropped once and for all themes like murders and media violence to be fully dedicated to vampires and witches.
The announcement of his next TV project – an one-hour drama just sold to FOX – reveals that the writer isn’t quite done yet with his fascination for crimes and pop culture.
The thriller, from Williamson's Outerbanks Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. TV, centers on a diabolical serial killer who uses technology to create a cult of serial killers, and the FBI agent who finds himself in the middle of it.
And, since it seems very hard to get him working on the screenplay of Scream 5, nowadays, this got us thinking that maybe – just maybe – this could be the recycled plotline to the “next trilogy”. A great concept that once made Bob Weinstein to buy instantly the idea to reboot the franchise.
Just a theory…
