A few weeks ago, a rumor has hit the web like a tornado: that was an open vacancy for a Scream 5 writer at Dimension. But, as far as we know, Kevin Williamson supposedly has a contract to this project (and to Scream 6). We guess that this novel is far from an ending – and we still might get those two movies penned by Williamson… Hope is the last one to die, right?
"No, there is no Scream 5 script. Kevin [Williamson], when I first talked to him about this project before there was a script, he had an idea for a trilogy, so we’ll have to see what comes out of that. I’m sure Bob Weinstein is open to it if the script or ideas are to his pleasure. He has very high standards. I don’t think he’s in any rush to do it particularly, but on the other hand, I think he’s open to the idea of a trilogy, so at the point when there is an idea that he’s really excited about I’m sure he will begin launching that next film" said Wes Craven to Cinema Blend.
