As we've mentioned before, we're frustrated with the lack of new ideas being turned into movies these days!
That being said…we'll admit we're excited for Scream 4, and we're intrigued by the possibility of more Scream sequels after that, mostly because it seems like they're actually putting care into these, and not just churning them out like other franchises…
Here's what Wes Craven had to say about some Scream 4 script issues he's run into:
“In some ways it’s a Wes Craven film, and in way it’s not entirely, because it’s not a script I have control of. It’s ultimately controlled by what the studio wants in the script. My job is much more bringing whatever experience and expertise and creativity I can. Look, there was a bumpy period when things shifted over from Kevin to Ehren. I signed up to do a script by Kevin and unfortunately that didn’t go all the way through the shooting. But it certainly is Kevin’s script and concept and ideas and themes.”
That's certainly how it goes when working with studios. Here's Wes on the possibility of more Scream films:
“When I initially met with Kevin, he sketched out what the next two would be, and I found it really fascinating. A lot depends on whether they come up with scripts to flesh out. But certainly, I’m up for it, if the script is there. It’s a fascinating thing to do two trilogies in a career.”
Despite the issues that Wes addressed, we're going to continue to remain optimistic about Scream 4. As far as the sequels are concerned, we'll def be curious to hear more about those…as long as the next movie is good, that is.
Would U like to see more Scream movies? Or should they pack it in after #4?
