With everything that Kevin Williamson is up to these days, we're not surprised at all that they'd need a new writer!
Last we heard about Scream 5, Wes Craven announced that he'd be taking the summer off, BUT he had previously assured us that the movie would definitely be happening…eventually.
During a recent interview, Wes opened up further about Scream 5, and he pretty much confirmed that they're looking for a new writer:
"My wife [Iya Labunka], who produced the picture, and I are just taking the summer off and acting like there's only a world here where we are and nowhere else. But I assume that Bob is looking for a writer. I think Kevin's television schedule has kept him from being able to be a writer all the way through [the film], which is what I think Bob is looking for. I'm sure he is looking for someone.
Very exciting! Better start getting those writing samples together, horror writers!!! And how exciting to hear that they're still moving forward with Scream 5!
This is definitely one of those movie franchises that we just can't get enough of!
