Yes, you’ve heard it right! A new Scream film is reportedly under development. With no confirmation or additional details as to whether the film will be a sequel to the feature film or if the new production will be stand-alone, one can only guess.
The original film made its debut in 1996 and completely revived the slasher genre. Thanks to director Wes Craven, writer Kevin Williamson and the cast full of talent, Scream comes off as a decent piece of work.
However, with Wes’ death in 2015, whether the next Scream instalment will be a sequel of Scream 4 or a remake is unknown. One thing is for sure; fans could see a new set of characters being terrorised by a mystery Ghostface. It has also been reported that though the writer Kevin Williamson wrote all for Scream movies, he will not be a part of the next project.
What the fans had to say
“KEEP IT it isn’t the original cast! Scream isn’t Scream without Neve, Courtney and David!!!!!!!”
“#Scream is definitely coming back to the theatres! I hope it’ll be a continuation of the first four movies. Like how the Halloween movie did it last year. After the evens of the 1978 movie. I hope to see Neve back!!”
However, some people had different views about a Scream movie without Wes and Kevin.
“NO NO NO. Scream won’t be Scream without Wes Craven, Kevin Williamson, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox or David Arquette. Wes has passed away, Williamson isn’t writing this, and I highly doubt the actors will be involved. The TV show failed. Move on & leave this series alone,’’ said a passionate fan.“I’m so conflicted… Scream is one of my all-time favourite films, and I love the series as a whole. Neve Campbell herself said returning to the franchise after Wes Craven’s death wouldn’t be right. I’m not sure how I feel about Scream without Craven, especially if it’s a new cast.’’ another fan said.
Eight years have passed since Ghostface was last seen in Scream 4, starring Emma Roberts and other familiar faces of the original cast
Scream star, Neve Campbell admitted that it would be difficult to return to Scream without Wes who was the ‘heart’ of the franchise.
Stay tuned for details on the future of the series.
