When I heard Wes Craven confirm that there will most likely be a Scream 5, I got worried. Scream is one of my favorite film franchises, but I am a afraid they are going to start making too much movies to the point of where I really hate it.
“Yes. The odds are that there will be [a Scream 5]. It is something that Bob Weinstein wants to do. He tends to do what he wants to do. So I am inclined to think that there will be [another sequel]. Whether I will be a part of it or not? I don’t know. My contract gives me the first look. If they show me something that is really wonderful? Of course I will be a part of it.”
When asked what his plans for Scream 5 would entail, Craven said:
“I’d have to kill you if I told you. Its better to have an ending where you can’t tell where it’s going to go next. Than to have an ending where you go, ‘Oh, that is the hook for the sequel. That is the hook for the next one.’ We felt it was better to let the audience speculate than to have all of these clues placed in their lap. It’s not a matter of not being smart enough [to figure out how 4 ties into 5]. We’re clever at this. Let’s just put it that way.”
Would you want another movie to the franchise, or would you think 4 is enough?
