Another popular horror series is continuing on and the director of the original series has spoken about the new films. Digital Spy recently interviewed Wes Craven who had a few things to say about Scream 4.
What's the status with Scream 4 at the moment? Are we going to see you direct it?
"Bob Weinstein (The Weinstein Company co-chairman) has talked to me, he's interested in me directing it. I had a brief conversation with Kevin [Williamson], I know that Kevin is writing. What I've said to Bob is I'm not closed to it, I'm not open to it, I'll be perfectly happy to read a script and tell him what I think. That's where it's at and I'm not expecting a script until August. I don't know what the premise is or anything."
Do you know what form it's taking? The word 'reboot' has been used.
"I don't think it's a reboot and Kevin, when he talked to me, said, 'Remember, it's not just Scream 4, it's Scream 5 and 6.' So I guess he has a trilogy in mind."

Will this even be worth seeing if Wes Craven isn't directing? I personally can't even remember the last time Kevin Williamson wrote something worthwhile. A whole new trilogy is intriguing, but does the world really need 3 more Scream movies where some unlikely killer is revealed at the end of the movie that makes you just sigh in a fit of boredom? I'd say we're better without.
