Wes Craven Talks ‘Scream 5’ and ‘ Scream 6’

Wes Craven talks Scream 5 and 6Wes Craven is finishing up his press rounds for the upcoming horror sequel Scream 4, and the director seems pretty confident that this latest chapter is set to kick off a whole new trilogy. Back in October, Craven revealed that screenwriter Kevin Williamson's initial intension was to create three new movies that tied in with the first trilogy.

He went onto explain more with the following.

"When I had my first conversation with [screenwriter Kevin Williamson] about this whole thing, he had an idea for a new trilogy. And I think that was Bob Weinstein 's thing also about waiting so long - if there were to be a Scream 4,' there would also probably be a Scream 5 ' and a 'Scream 6' sooner or later so we could construct a new trilogy that kind of stood on its own. I think a very significant indicator of the dedication that Bob Weinstein has to this franchise is not doing the serious 'Scream' movie again for a long time. Not only has the audience been deprived of it for a long time, but enough time and events in the young characters' lives had a chance to occur. It's a process that I think all of us go through, trying to stay fresh and not repeating our last acts. What is next? What thoughts are in my mind that are original, thoughts that even surprise me, as opposed to looking up and going, 'Oh, I guess I can do one of those. I guess I can make a zombie movie!' We just need to keep it fresh and, in a sense, inspired. The thought that you can't even intellectually sit down necessarily and come up with something, but then a thought comes and hits you in the middle of the shower - that's your deepest subconscious creativity talking to you."

Scream 5 has not been given the green light at this time. An announcement can be expected shortly after Scream 4 debuts at the box offices, if the grosses are as to be as expected.

Scream 5 is in development .

      I would like to see another one where after all this time, Billy loomis had a brother and he comes after sydney wanting revenge. Like where he decides to finish all of them off.

                                  As an old school fan of Wes Craven i will probably see this but i expect very little.

                                    The movie business is really running out of unique ideas that they are starting to try and bring back what has been dead for a long time that it would be insane to even think of bringing it back....... The Mime hopes that it is entertaining but.....blanks
