I, for one, am not dying for a new Scream flick, and, it would seem, neither is the rest of the world, including director . In a recent interview with Arrow in the Head, he pretty much confirms that there's a whole lotta nothing going on with the project.
So far I have not heard anything about Scream 5 from Bob Weinstein...There is some talk about a television series, but I don’t think anything has moved forward on that yet. That’s what I’m hearing more than anything else from the guys at Dimension. It would be them picking up the phone and asking me if I wanted to play with them, so...
In other words, if you were waiting for Scream 5 to hit the big screen, don'd hold your breath, but there may be a chance we'll see a television adaptation sometime down the road. Sometime. Maybe. Okay, it doesn't look likely, but with the recent popularity in supernatural and horror-based television shows, it's a much stronger possibility than seeing another movie.
