A New 'Scream' Movie Is Officially in Development

Scream Ghostface

After the hugely popular original trilogy, which began in 1996, and the successful fourth sequel that followed in 2011, we've been desperate to know if the much-loved franchise would continue. Craven, who passed away on August 30, 2015, created and directed all four Scream films with the final installment released in 2011.

Spyglass is also seeking to remake Hellraiser, which was the other major horror franchise owned by Dimension.

They're making another Scream movie!

A new "Scream" film is reportedly being developed. In fact, a new film in the series is now officially in development.

What we do know is that Kevin Williamson, the writer who helped create the Scream franchise with Craven, is not yet involved with the current project, meaning this could take some sort of new look at the series.

Wes Craven is gone, and for some, that felt like the end to the Scream movies.

One fan came up with an incredible concept: "It should be way more meta and have the Scream franchise exist in this reboot universe and a super fan becomes obsessed and inspired with the films that they want to create their very own "Woodsboro murders". (The third season of the Scream show, which Craven and Williamson were not involved in, premiered last summer.) The original Scream arrived at a ideal time in pop culture, with the first wave of slasher films having gotten bogged down in self-parody. Or do you think they should just leave well enough alone and make something new?

It stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Skeet Ulrich, Matthew Lillard, Rose McGowan, Jamie Kennedy, and Drew Barrymore, Joseph Whipp, W. Earl Brown, Liev Schreiber, and Roger L. Jackson as the voice of Ghostface. Neve Campbell, who played Sidney Prescott, has said that another film without Craven would be "challenging", but that she might be on board. But you know, Wes was the heart of the thing.

"I mean, obviously Kevin Williamson wrote brilliant scripts. I think it would be hard to work with another director".
