According to Bob Weinstein "there will be no more scream movies..."
As far as it's comes, MTV has developed a new series "Scream" that made it's debut on Tuesday June 30, 2015 at 10/9c . The show is contracted to live up to SIX SEASONS but that depends on how far it will go and master of suspense Wes Craven is also one of the executive producers which is why you should be watching Tuesdays at 10/9c
Scream: THE TV SERIES follows the story in the troubled past town "Lakewood" where a young teen "Emily" (like Sidney Prescott from 'Scream 1996') is being targeted along with her friends that are lying and keeping secrets from her.
Last year, Kevin Williamson creator/writer of Scream, commented on his thoughts on a new possibly trilogy and here's what he said:
"It's all here (points to his head) and my computer...... when I pitched Scream 4, I pitched a 5 & 6."
So is a new trilogy possible? The answer is YES! but as far as now, tv is probably the smartest way to go according to Bob Weinstein and 'Scream 4' doing poorly at the box office. The best option would be to push the idea of a new trilogy for future years for generations to come.
IS IT POSSIBLE 'SCREAM 5 & 6' CAN BE RELEASED IN SEPARATE GENERATIONS? OR DO WE NEED A REBOOT?
Instead building lots of sequels in a single generation, one of the things Dimension Films can do is release new installments in new generations to explore the many new attributes that are to come and building them with fresh scares that can catch our attention remaking the games from the original movies which is why there is no need for a reboot.
The "Scream" franchise can re-invent itself in various ways which is why it would be better to explore the many different phases that can contribute greatly into the horror genre of the future without having to go back to the beginning.
