Craven directing Scream 4?


Wes Craven is considering directing the fourth installment of the ”Scream” series.

So what’s it going to take to reteam the master-of-horror with Ghostface?

“It would take it being really as good a script as the first one was,” Craven tells Bloody Disgusting, adding that he should also receive a very heavy bag of green for it, with “the pay day [reflecting] what I’ve done for that company and what Ive gone through on Cursed (laughs).”

I don’t know that a fourth film in the series is really necessary – didn’t they kill this series with the disastrous third film? – but I do know it’ll probably make money, and that, of course, is the only reason people make movies… right?

Whatever the case, here’s hoping it’s not a watered-down version of the original film, and that it features some of the original actors (Neve Campbell is a must) and a script that’s – excuse the pun – killer. Apparently Kevin Williamson, writer of the original film, is going to write it – so there’s a good chance it mightn’t turn out to be “Prom Night”.
