Yes! Scream 5 Is A Go!

Filed under: Film Flickers

harvey-weinstein-wants-a-scream-5

After the ending of the last one - which was pretty kick-ass, might we add - we have no idea how they could continue the series, but hey! If it doesn't suck, we're all for it!

Despite Scream 4 not doing as well financially as anyone had hoped in the US, The Weinstein Company chief Harvey Weinstein recently revealed the horror/comedy sequel has done so well overseas that a Scream 5 will almost certainly happen, and director Wes Craven will most likely be involved!

He explains:

"I'm sure [director Wes Craven is] going to do a sequel, I'm sure he's going to do a sequel. Foreign [sales] are so strong that we'll do over $100 million worldwide. It's at $90 now, with about five or six major countries to go and a lot of small ones. We'll probably do $110 million. I wish it would have been better domestically. But it's not the worst thing in the world that's ever happened. When I had my first conversation with [screenwriter Kevin Williamson] about this whole thing, he had an idea for a new trilogy. And I think that was Bob Weinstein's thing also about waiting so long — if there were to be a 'Scream 4,' there would also probably be a 'Scream 5' and a 'Scream 6' sooner or later so we could construct a new trilogy that kind of stood on its own."

Wow! We're certainly more than curious to see how they can manage to continue the story after Scream 4 - it seemed pretty nicely wrapped up!

But we're certain if anyone can do it, it's Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven!

We're ready to see what you have up your sleeves, guys!

What do U think? Do U want to see a Scream 5?

Wes Craven Expects Neve, David, And Courteney Back For Scream 5!

wes-craven-expects-scream-castmembers-to-return-for-scream-5

Excellent! We wouldn't want to see it if they weren't involved in some capacity!

Now that Scream 4 has premiered and rocked our world in the best way possible, series director Wes Craven has revealed that not only is Scream 5 most likely going to happen, but he expects its surviving stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courteney Cox all to return!

He explains:

"I imagine the core characters will continue. I suspect they'll be with us until the end, because they just are the heart and soul of the movie and especially since we tend to kill off most of the other people. They'll be with us. There will be some continuation of the drama of Sidney Prescott's family and the ghosts that haunt it."

Poor Neve! How many effing serial killers intent on murdering you can one girl possibly have?!

LOLz!

As much as we liked the finality of the way this past one ended, we can't say we'd be too disappointed if they all returned for one or two more rounds - so long as the take was as fresh as it was for 4!

Good lord, they NAILED IT, didn't they?

Rio's Birds Of A Feather Fare Better Than Scre4m At The Box-Office

rio-scream-four-box-office-numbers.jpg

Guess the box-office belongs to the kiddies this weekend!

The Friday numbers are in and so far, the family flick Rio is in the lead with an impressive $10.2 million take from the box-office yesterday. If the 3D toon keeps this up, they could end up with a strong $37 million for the weekend.

Coming in at the #2 spot, slashing an estimated $8 million out of movie-goers, was Scre4m. The flick is getting decent reviews, but based on its performance yesterday, it is projected to take in $20 million for the weekend. That's well below what Dimension Films had projected, but still, not a bad start.

C'mon people! You can do better than this! Would it help if we told you we know the ending and it will undoubtedly BLOW YOUR MIND??? Trust us, go see this movie! It's scary! It's funny! It's written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven - 'nough said!

Kevin Williamson Speaks Out About Scream 4! Why He Really Left The Project!

kevin-williamson-speaks-out-about-scream-4

Wow. The truth is finally out!

Ever since Scream 4 began production last year, there have been rumors of problems on set and massive re-writes, ultimately leading to writer Kevin Williamson dropping the project and refusing to discuss what went down publicly - until now!

In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, the writer has finally opened up about what exactly went down between he and exec Bob Weinstein, what led to Scream 3 writer Ehren Kruger coming in to do re-writes, and if he still supports the long-awaited sequel!

He explains:

Oh, I got in a big fight with Bob Weinstein. God love him. I’ve worked with the man for 16 years out of my 16-year career. We get in some fights. We’re a very dysfunctional family over there at the Weinstein Co. We got into a massive fight creatively and we hugged it out and then we moved on. Oh just, you know — I felt strongly about this and he felt strongly about that and then I did this and that wasn’t right. Everyone was second-guessing everything because everyone wanted it to be so perfect. That’s exactly what happened. The one thing that Bob and I connect on very basically, why we’ve worked successfully together for 16 years, is we’re passionate. And no one is more passionate than Bob Weinstein. And it is that passion that allows you to make a movie where he will believe in you and trust in you and it’s also that passion that can cause fights and cause struggle. For 16 years, he’s kept me gainfully employed. I love him. Yes, we got into the fight, but then the big clincher came: Contractually, I had signed on to do The Vampire Diaries [Williamson's series for The CW]. You know, the little thing called first and second position? I was in first position to do Vampire Diaries and second position to do Scream 4. So guess what? It was a contractual thing. Warner Bros called up and they said, “Dude where are you? You have a show that’s on the air — where are you?” I did double duty as much as I could but The Vampire Diaries was also very important to me. But then one blog got a hold of it. It’s fine. What are you going to say? Yeah we got into a massive fight, but at the same time the fight ended and we hugged it out and we continued forward and we tried to make the best movie possible. But it was also very raw and sensitive.

I’m very supportive of the film and I hope everybody likes it. Not for a second would I dare do that to Wes Craven and Neve and Courteney and David and Bob Weinstein, who made my career. The reality is I did I worked very hard on the film. I did my darndnest to try and make a really good movie. I gave it my all. I wrote everything I thought I could write. Then they had to film it and I had to get back to The Vampire Diaires. So I think I really contributed. I hope it all turns out! My fingers are crossed!

Wow! He really lays it at all!

We can't imagine how much pressure must have been on their shoulders for this movie to be a hit, given the amount of fan dedication, so we can't blame them for having a blow-out over a creative difference!

Clearly, it happened how it happened, and they both have the movie's best interest at heart, so hopefully there isn't any lingering animosity and the movie turns out to be AMAZING! We having a feeling that it won't disappoint!

And check out the rest of Kevin's interview, and whether or not he's willing to do a Scream 5AFTER THE JUMP!

Wes Craven Talks Scream 5

wes-craven-talks-more-about-the-possibility-of-a-fifth-scream-film

It's all about part 5's these days! Have you SEEN the Fast Five trailer yet???

Earlier today, we mentioned that Disney had already begun work on the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 script, and now we've got updates on another part 5…SCREAM 5!

Here's what Wes Craven had to say about the potential fifth installment in the Scream franchise:

"You know, it's so far in the future. It's gonna be a year [before production would even start on 'Scream 5'] at least, I would think, because even though Kevin sketched out the general notion for '5' and '6', it was not like he had a…ten-page beat sheet. So it's gonna be a matter of if Kevin is of the mind to write again in this franchise, and when will we write? My approach to ['Scream 4'] in general…[was] I love[d] the element of Kevin, I love[d] the element of Courtney Cox and David and Neve…I knew everybody had pretty much signed up, but until I saw a substantial amount of the script I didn't say yes. So that's my approach: 'let's see the script, let's see what they come up with, and then I will or I won't.'"

Let's get going on that script then, Kevin Williamson! We need to get moving with Scream 5, if we're gonna start thinking about Scream 6 anytime soon. LOLz.

What part 5's are U looking forward to? Scream 5? Pirates 5? Fast Five? Final Destination 5?

Wes Craven Talks Scream 4 Issues…And The Possibility Of Scream 5 & 6!

Filed under: Film Flickers

wes craven talks scream 4 and possible sequels

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?

Neve Promises Scream 4 Is Gonna Be Spooky, Scary!

Filed under: Film FlickersNeve Campbell

scream-4-scary-according-to-neve-campbell.jpg

Oh man! Can. Not. Wait!

Day by day we get closer to the release of Scream 4 and there are those who are so stoked about it, they've already allotted their entire tax refund to pay for the multiple showings they will be attending throughout the week. And then, there are those who are skeptical that the franchise can actually be resurrected, calling into question Ghost Face's ability to scare the panties off of ya.

Well, how's about we ask Neve Campbell and hear what she thinks! Neve, thoughts?

"It's going to be very scary, very funny, Wes Craven is brilliant," she told sources. That's when Wes added:

"The young cast brings a whole different world to it and a whole different take on horror. It's a lot about looking back on the last ten years of horror and comparing it and contrasting it and having fun with it."

Yep, that's all the reassurance we need. See ya April 15th!
