Wes Craven Talks Scream 4
And 5 and 6!

09 June 2009  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Digital Spy

 He sounds somewhat equivocal, but Wes Craven hasn't ruled out being involved with writer Kevin Williamson's projected new Scream trilogy.  He also confirmed recent rumours that Courtney Cox and David Arquette are already onboard.

Speaking to Digital Spy about the Last House on the Left remake, Craven clarified his position on reviving Ghostface: "I'm not closed to it, I'm not open to it, I'll be perfectly happy to read a script and tell [producer Bob Weinstein] what I think." 

Craven also suggests that the new films will not feature original Scream-queen Neve Campbell, and that apart from Mr and Mrs Arquette, the rest of the cast will be entirely new. 

The director hasn't been averse to remakes and relaunches so far. He was happy enough to oversee Last House, The Hills Have Eyes and its sequel, although he's not entirely pleased about the upcoming new Elm Street (possibly simply because he isn't involved). His main fear about continuing the Scream series seems to be that they'll jump the shark.  Surely after Scream 3 it's far too late to be worrying about that...

MAKE FUN OF RE-MAKES! BUT NO NEVE???
Would be cool to see Kevin back writing, he should poke fun at all the horrific re-makes. His fave movie is 'Halloween' so hopefully he'll rip the $hit out of Zombies lame rip off. But no Neve as Sydney!!! That sucks! It's like Alien without Weaver. Wes needs to be on board & they need to capture the real fear from the Drew Barrymore scene. The first is a classic, second was OK, and so was the third (remember Kevin didn't write the third) At least it'll be original horror instead of re-makes More

No neve???
Scream without Neve Campbell is like a fish out of water, it shouldn't happen! i loved the trilogy, it would be a shame to see it go down the pan like nightmare on elm street More

Scream 4?
I'm open to this, but I really hated Scream 3 so I hope it's better than that. 1 & 2 will always remain the best. More

The Arquettes
Can't say I'm entirely surprised that both Arquettes are on board. Courtney's first attempt at life outside Friends, a series called Dirt, was cancelled quite quickly and Cougar Town is rumoured to be going the same way. As for David Arquette...when's the last time he worked? Eight Legged Freaks anyone? Or was his cameo in Friends after that? Fair play to Neve Campbell for taking up what sounds like a blossoming stage career. I would bet good money that there will be a line of "Scr More

Scream 3 was fine
And i do recall Empire thinking it was fine as well. Not a patch on the other two, but good fun. If Craven is involved, I'm in, if not then fuck it. More

*sigh*
This better be good! I know it's not an official 'remake' but it has been a while since the original Scream, it needs to live up to high standards! More

What will the clever self-referrential ironic gimmick be this time?
What will the clever self-referrential ironic gimmick be this time? Will they be addressing the trend of franchise resurrections or reboots? Or how about ongoing sequels? Perhaps it'll be a copycat killer killing a bunch of teens "for the new generation" who missed out on the previous crimes? Isn't that what reboots and franchise resurrections are for? More
