Wes' films didn't only deliver some of the greatest on-screen scares, they helped propel the careers of stars like Johnny Depp, Drew Barrymore and Courteney Cox.

A Nightmare On Elm Street reboot was in the works, and Scream was made into a TV series on MTV this summer.

Our thoughts go out to Wes' family during this difficult time.

Will There Be MORE Scream Movies Coming? Well, There COULD Be But It Looks Like There Won't Be!

scream 5 and 6 exist but well never see them what gives

Do YOU want to see more Scream movies?

Well, if you do, you're in luck!

It looks like Kevin Williamson, the writer of Scream, Scream 2, and Scream 4, has Scream 5 AND 6 all ready to go, but it seems like the studio doesn't want to produce them!

Kevin was at the 2014 Television Critics Associaton Summer Press Tour and talked about how the STUDIO were the ones who decided NOT to go ahead with the other films!

He said:

'It’s weird, when I pitched Scream 4, I pitched Scream 4, 5 and 6, I pitched a whole new trilogy. I guess Scream 4 never took off in a way they hoped, and so… [Well] It’s all here [points to his head] and my computer… If they wanna buy it from me!'

He also said that the possibility of that happening was ZERO because Wes Craven was supposedly "done" working with him!

HARSH!

However, Wes completely shot down that rumor! He took to Twitter and said:

Wes Craven's Scream Comes To The Small Screen! MTV Orders TV Pilot!

tumblr m9jln6eexq1rsqj6co1 500

MTV has got us EXCITED! But why, you ask??

The Viacom owned network is bringing Wes Craven’s Scream movies to television!! AH-MAZING!

A one-hour pilot has been ordered and will be based on the franchise! In fact, MTV and Dimension Film are trying to get Wes, who helmed the first Scream back in 1996, to direct the pilot!

As no writer has signed onto the project, we sure hope Kevin Williamson is in on this! He did, afterall, pen the movie scripts!

Assuming all goes well, the adapted TV show could air the summer of 2014.

Think we’ll see any original cast cameos? Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, we’re looking at you!!
