While it’s already been revealed that writer Kevin Williamson is hard at work on the script for Scream 4, director Wes Craven hasn’t weighed in until now.
The man who brought us the first three Scream films has been talking to Digital Spy and says that while he isn’t officially set to direct yet, he’d consider it…
“Bob Weinstein has talked to me, he's interested in me directing it. I had a brief conversation with Kevin and I know that Kevin is writing.
“What I've said to Bob is I'm not closed to it, I'm not open to it, I'll be perfectly happy to read a script and tell him what I think. That's where it's at and I'm not expecting a script until August. I don't know what the premise is or anything."
Despite these being the early days, and his loose connection to the movie – or possible movies, as it turns out – Craven still dropped a few hints about the nature of the new script.
"I don't think it's a reboot and Kevin, when he talked to me, said, 'Remember, it's not just Scream 4, it's Scream 5 and 6.' So I guess he has a trilogy in mind."
Finally, with the recent word that David Arquette and Courteney Cox Arquette are considering a return to the franchise, Craven added his own take.
"I've been told, and I don't think they'll mind if I say this, the deals on David Arquette and Courteney are virtually set. I believe everybody else will be new."
So there you have it. An all-new Scream franchise? In the making Can it return to scoop the post-post-modern horror crown?
