Kevin Williamson Says No to Scream 5

Ever since Scream 4‘s debut to being greenlit back in 2010, there has been speculation on whether the recent installment in the saga would be the start of what could be a new trilogy.  And more importantly, would Kevin be on board to write a possible Scream 5 or even a Scream 6, depending on the success of Scream 4?

In a recent interview with AssignmentX about Williamson’s CW TV Show, The Vampire Diaries, the question popped up in the midst of discussion, on whether or not Kevin had anything to say about Scream 5.  The writer’s answer was short, simple, but needless to say containing all the information we’ve been waiting to hear one way or another.

AX: “Can you say anything about SCREAM 5: GENERATIONS? (Japanese Subtitle Given)

WILLIAMSON: “I don’t know. I’m not doing it.”

Months ago in the shadow of Scream 4‘s premiere, we learned that Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson sat down to discuss the future of the franchise, with Williamson having a possible new trilogy…already planned out.  Much to our disappointment, Williamson did not elaborate on the question and remained only on the few words he had to say.

What do you think of Kevin’s confirmation?  Disappointed?  Relieved?

Reader Advisory: Comments may contain SCREAM 4 SPOILERS
  1. Without Kevin this franchise might as well be dead and I don’t want to see any scream without Kevin’s direction

  2. thats horrible, id rather they not make another if he’s not involved…how annoying! the franchise needed a proper ending…

  3. Scream 5: Generations ??? Where did the generations come from?

  4. Kevin should be more respectful of Scream, without it he wouldn’t of found fame or be writing/working on tv shows.

  5. As much as I love kevin’s original Scream, and I’d love to see him continue the franchise, but to be honest… kevin’s not that great of a writer. Sure the original Scream was witty with sharp dialogue and cliche turns, and the fourth had a really great concept (which was slightly ruined by the producers IMO) but I’m sure the franchise could get along quite well without him. The problem isn’t so much as to kevin’s fallout, it’s finding a GOOD writer, someone that knows their shit… Krueger isn’t a good option. But my point is there are plenty of great writers that with the right observation of the first two Screams (first especially) that could pull off a pretty decent sequel… So I say they hire someone competent, or don’t do it at all. Scream 4 was a good ending.

  6. I’m so damn disappointed!! I’ll write the Scream 5 script myself!

  7. I think I might cry :'( Why? Why Kevin? I think if they found a good writer who has a fresh take on pop culture, with Wes Craven’s help to keep the scream feeling it could be a great ending, fuck the Idea of a new trilogy just make a good ending, that’s what i’m seriously hoping for, I think the fans deserve a real ending. A depressing thought is that the final Shot of the scream franchise is Jill’s face. no. just no, that can’t happen. Please Kevin wake up and realize what a mistake that is!

  8. Fuck fuck fuck I am heartbroken!!! Why are they doing this o us??? I want my new trilogy dammit!!!

  9. I’m a bit disappointed and hope he changes his mind. I really enjoyed Scream 4 and am really looking forward to what his vision for bringing the SCREAM franchise back was. You can’t just bring back the scream franchise and leave in the middle of a new trilogy. I hope all comes together in the end but if I don’t get all the original actors and Kevin then might as well leave it at Scream 4.

  10. @imarleneking (Pretty Little Liars show runner) for #Scream5!

  11. Nice birthday gift eh? Happy Birthday to me… damn this sucks.

  12. It’s disappointing most certainly because Scream 4 left fans and viewers with an open mind, sure the the ending concluded but they left a lot of stuff open that the fans are curious about. Like the fact if Robbie was even gay or if Kirby was even dead? Fans deserve to get a 5th. We waited nearly a decade for a 4th. We need closure! I want SCREAM 5 to happen. The ideas he talks about are probably very good ideas & we want to see them. You can’t just ell people that “I have planned out Scream 5 & 6 with Wes” & then say “I’m not doing it” that’s wrong and messed up & a HUGE slap in the face to the fans of Scream. Respect for Kevin has gone down. Besides to people actually watch TVD, I know I don’t Twilight killed my love for vamps. This sucks.

  13. I knew he would say no. I would say no, just let the Scream series be. When I saw Scream4, I knew Scream was done.

  14. Everything depends on the producers. It is not Kevin’s fault.

  15. If the script is good enought. The third One was good even if Kevin wasn’t there. Hope there Will be a Scream 5!!!!

  16. good! he was lazy with scream 4 and obviously doesn’t care anymore, so how on earth could he make a good script if he hasn’t got any passion anymore. Get a worthwhile, grateful and talented writer, instead of this trashy ungrateful brat!

  17. I think they should go on without Kevin, if he doesn’t want to do it fine! If Wes and the main 3 Characters all come back then I will be happy, between them they can come up with something great providing they spend enough time on it this time! The SCREAM Franchise isn’t over as some people are saying, we can still have a Scream 5 and 6, that’s all I want

  18. Blah blah blaaah. There are plenty of fish in the sea

  19. When I read this my heart dropped. I had really wanted Kevin to write Scream 5 & 6. I’m still holding out hope that someone new will take over & give the movie franchise some zing. I didn’t mind Scream 4 at all. The more I watch it on dvd the more genius I find it to be. I want to have the second trilogy finished before the powers that be decide to go all crazy with continuations like Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street. I also don’t mind a new movie to be made, just after we finish parts 5 & 6.

  20. I knew it. The Weinsteins fucked this up by messing around with his script in 4. If he gets no respect why would he ever come back.

    Scream should be done now.

  21. IMO, Kevin needs to get his act together. Shame on him for dangeling us with Scream 4 in hopes of a new trilogy, and then not even go through with it. Boo Who, you got into a fight over Scream 4, big whoop- move on with your life and write Scream 5. I respect Kevin don’t get me wrong, but let’s admit it- when it comes to Scream he’s a little ungrateful. Scream MADE his career, and he’s honestly done very little to get the franchise going. Let’s not forget, during Scream 2 he took an abscene leave for Dawson’s Creek, and come on the original draft for Scream 3 wasn’t great. And now for Scream 4, he kind of threw it aside for his TV Shows (what is it with him and TV shows?). Sure he was contracted for his shows, but let’s face it when it comes to Scream series he kind of does the bare minimum. For the fate of the series? I don’t know. I wish it would be left at Scream 4, especially since for 5 and 6 they’ll probably kill or do unjustice to the trio, but I don’t know. Fate IMO always works out for the best for the Scream series, so I’ll just leave it at that.

  22. well if kevin is not going to be doing a scream 5 and if no-one else will want to do scream 5. i’m sorry scream fans but this will result in SCREAM: REMAKE :( :( :(

  23. you idiots, no where in this report did it say scream 5 wasnt happening, the movie is happening. just not right away. & scream 5 has been the motive for the weinsteins, it just hasnt been confirmed. & scream 3 turned out good without kevin, this is not the end of the new trilogy

  24. clearly the producers changed kevin script so much for scream 4 i cant blame him. however, i also think that if other people wanna do Scream5 they should. Kevin left mid production of 4 to do vampire diaries and does not care that Scream gave him his start

  25. he could go bye

  26. That sucks he’s not making it. Oh and by the way I’m the real Tatum Riley

  27. Sad news, but understandable. His scripts should not be butchered. The original opening should not have been altered. It was genius. No phone call, just a surprise ghost face appearance. Genius.

    I am open though to a new writer (diablo cody perhaps?). Just give us something fresh and full of life and a proper ending and all will be well.

  28. And to be honest, I liked scream 3 (even though 4 was better), so its not that bad to have a new writer. And 4 was decent even though flawed and alter from his original vision, so it is what it is and we’re going to get an awesome movie no matter what. Scream is scream. As long as ghostface lives, we’re all going to be satisfied. Keep wes though. He’s the heart of the franchise. He keeps the weinsteins in check I believe. He fights for the fans.

  29. If there was one other writer in the world I’d choose to take over the helm, it would be joss weadon (wait till you scream fans watch cabin in the woods when its released, your gonna go nuts) but since he is doing the avengers now, I don’t think that will be happening, but the thing is, know matter what scream 5 would make no sense right now, all the scream films have had a theme and comment on the nature of slasher films.
    Scream 1 commented on the cliques that slashers had become accustom to, it reinvented what you thought the slasher formula was.
    Scream 2 commented on the formula of a sequel, reinventing the usual sequel cliques, thus creating a sequel better than the original.
    Scream 3 commented on hollywood formula, glossy, diluted, glamorised violence, (many fans miss this comment and discard the films as not very good) eren kruger taking over as writer was just so hollywood
    Scream 4 commented on the current culture of reboots and remakes, the formula once again turned on its head to reveal that its the best reboot ever ( the fact that the film knowingly is a fake reboot makes it pure genius)
    So scream 5 wouldn’t have much to comment on right now, making a sequel (would erase the point of scream 2) a remake (would erase the point of scream 4) a prequel (would erase the point of part 1)
    The only possible routes\comments the scream franchise could take, is direct to dvd (plot: the stab sequels are now not popular and have become low budget dvd releases, the killer a fan of the series wants to bring back the stab films to cinemas so he murders people related to dewey, gail and sidney, none of the actors would be in the film) or comment on the fans (crazy stab fanatic is angry the writer of stab (robert rodriguz) has refused to write stab 8 so he decides to kill the original survivors to give the writer “inspiration” to write stab 8) obviously these ideas are not great, and if kev was forced into doing scream 5 it would have nothing decent to comment on thus making it an irrelevant film in what can only be described as the most intelligent horror franchise out there so I say yay there is no scream 5 for now!!!! But I’m sure in ten years time, horror will change and kevin williamson will have something to say about that, and that something will be scream 5
    Also please guys go to see cabin in the woods, its gonna do for hill billie horror (texas chainsaw, wrong turn, hills have eyes) what scream did for slasher films, you will be scared, shocked, fall in love with the characters and just be blown away, in a years time we will be all commenting on a cabin in the woods website, so don’t forget go see it and let the re invention begin

  30. I’m disappointed in Kevin Williamson’s decision not to continue with the Scream franchise. He said he would be writing both 5 & 6 and for him to decide not to continue due to other obligations is just wrong. I have hopes that some younger, newer writers may take over. I don’t care. I just want the movies to continue. It’s a great franchise. I’ve loved all four and will probably love 5 & 6 also. If they want to have a whole new movie altogether at some time that is fine with me also. A true horror fan would always welcome these movies. I never tire of horror movies. Bring on Scream 5 & 6 people!

  31. Fine. Kevin doesn’t care anymore. Wes, Neve, Courteney, and David should return for Scream 5. Get a new writer, DO NOT get the horrible, horrible writer Aaron Krueger! I have lost respect for Kevin Williamson. :/

  32. @ROwan- his name is ehren kruger

  33. Kevin signed a contract to write 5! Put him in jail for not doing it!!

  34. KW is a d-bag, I say good riddance. The series could use a new writer to give it the swift kick in the ass that it needs.

  35. I say good for Kevin, he knows when to jump off a sinking ship.

  36. Still getting over the fact that scream 5 won’t be happening. To ease my pain I’m writing MY TOP TWENTY SCREAM FRANCHISE SCENES

    1: CASEY BECKERS DEATH.
    (Who would have thought a blonde girl being tormented and stabbed would create such an iconic and often imitated piece of movie history)
    2: MAUREEN PRESCOTTS DEATH
    (From the genius that is the stab movie within a movie, to the creepy unsettling death in a place where you should be safe to watch the horror from, even scarier knowing your probley gonna use the cinema toilet at one stage)
    3: DERICK SINGS TO SIDNEY
    (The most unique scene, not just in the scream series but also in any slasher film, emotional, feel good and a great way to create a real chemistry between sid and derrick)
    4: BILLY AND STU ARE THE KILLERS
    (Not only do we find out billy faked his own death, we also find out that there are 2 killers which is unprecedented in any slasher film up to that point)
    5: SIDNEY AND HALLIE ESCAPE THE COP CAR
    (The most tense and suspenseful scene in the franchise)
    6: GALE AND JENNIFER INVESTIGATE
    (From the funniest cameo from a certain princess leah, to the hilarious monologue from Jennifer on why she is following gale, the two actresses chemistry is pure comedy gold)
    7: KIRBYS DEATH SCENE
    (After being tormented by the return of ghostface’s movie triva knowledge, she is stabbed by the guy she loves and trys to help in what feels like a mini greek tragedy)
    8 SIDNEY PLAYS CASSANDRA
    (A beautiful piece of cinematography, a great play to use comparisons of where sidney is in life and a clever way to set up the final act’s location, who said slasher films can’t be artistic)
    9:RANDYS DEATH SCENE
    (Unexpected, brutal, upsetting and a brave move to not only kill the films most heartfelt character but to do it in broad daylight)
    10: TATUMS DEATH SCENE
    (we knew she would die, just didn’t expect it to be such a unique and brutal way, does for cat flaps what jaws did for seaside resorts
    11: SCREAM 4 HAT TRICK OPENING
    (What appears to be an un original opening turns out to be 15 mins of pure twists and turns, movie within a movie within a movie within a movie, it may not be as brutal as the rest but it sure is the most original)
    12: BILLY AND STU GET STALKED
    (After a tour de force of self harming the two killers are stalked in what is a true twist on the stalk and slash genre)
    13: JILLS SELF HARMS
    (the lengths some people will go to to get away with murder is truly displayed as jill crashes and smashes her body around the house, never has self harming been this fun)
    14: OLIVIAS DEATH SCENE
    (Not only do we get a great setup with kirby jill olivia ghostface and loudspeaker we get the most violent gruesome death scene ever, gritty, painful and shocking, the phrase neighbour hood watch will never be the same again)
    15: RANDYS TRILOGY RULES
    (A great way to get randy back for a cameo, sweet, funny and sad all rolled into one)
    16: JILLS THE KILLER
    (Finding out the supposed new heroin of the film is the killer is twisted enough, then we get the reason why she has killed her friends and family, it speaks volumes about the youth of today and the idea of celebrity, its the most twisted motive ever, its not really about revenge its about infamy and that is twisted to the max)
    17: CICI COOPERS DEATH SCENE
    (A strong performance from smg, a unsettling mood and a real cat and mouse game ends up being the best chase scene in the franchise)
    18: RANDY AND DEWEY TALK SEQUEL RULES
    (Great chemistry, a fun cameo from tori spelling and some hilarious dialogue make this comedy gold a bit like the male version of the gale and jenifer scene in part 3)
    19: KENNY THE CAMERAMAN DEATH
    (An original take on the classic “its behind you” formula, a delay on the camera sets the scene for a fun, witty, slice of gruesome murder)
    20: DON’T F**K WITH THE ORIGINAL
    ( The greatest line in the scream series, not only does it sum up the whole fake reboot that was scream 4 but also sums up hollywood horror of the past ten years, kevin williamson should be so proud of that line)

    And that’s my top twenty.

  39. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA look at all the self-entitled brats thinking Kevin owes them something. We’re lucky he went as far as he did with Scream 4 considering they spent 4 months of pre-production making him rewrite in order to achieve a more “teen friendly script and cheaper place to shoot” and mot to mention complete changed his original intentions with the film. I would have quit long before Kevin did. Work for two minutes in the industry before you start whining you brats. Kevin gave you FOUR FILMS. Shove being owed anything right up your asses.

  40. the reboot is the only way to keep alive the franchise. But this time we’ll see Maureen’s Prescott murder in the begining.

    The element of surprise?? New Killers (Tatum & Dewey) and Casey Becker’s character as the new survivor, Sidney doesn’t

  41. This is sad. I wanted him back! But, if they still plan on making another one, please find a great writer who could possibly make the movie amazing!

  42. @william. Totally agree with the scenes you chose. I love the house explosion in scream 3, which I add to your list, which is also my list.

    Ah. I reckon wes met with diablo cody after scream 4’s release to discuss scream 5 actually. I would like diablo cody to write it. I think she has the cultural wit to form something special.

    I for one thought jennifers body was genius.

  43. @am, no one here sounds like whinny brats to me. We are Scream fans and just expression OUR opinions. Kevin doesn’t owe us anything and no one said he does. The fact of the matter is he signed on and said he would write the next two Scream scripts and is now backing out of it due to other obligations. We ARE allowed to express ourselves. If you don’t like it, what are you doing on this board?

  44. @Krime bahahahahahahahaha this is a perfect example of a self-entitled brat “IMO, Kevin needs to get his act together. Shame on him for dangeling us with Scream 4 in hopes of a new trilogy, and then not even go through with it. Boo Who, you got into a fight over Scream 4, big whoop- move on with your life and write Scream 5″ as well as this dumbass “good! he was lazy with scream 4 and obviously doesn’t care anymore, so how on earth could he make a good script if he hasn’t got any passion anymore. Get a worthwhile, grateful and talented writer, instead of this trashy ungrateful brat!”

    IDIOTS. Learn something then speak. Your opinions are ill-conceived.

  45. Strange @am, you sound like the self entitled brat. You can keep coming on here, but it won’t do you any good. I’m waaay more mature than you are and this just proves my point. You can’t let anyone express THEIR OWN opinion or have the final word. Point taken at your maturity level.

  46. @KrimeThyme. You said it!

  47. Awwwww when I prove a point they sway from the convo and make personal attacks. I didn’t say they can’ express their opinion (learn to read and not put misconstrue things), they can all they want just like I am expressing my opinion on them acting like spoiled brats. You are the one coming down on MY OPINION moron. Let’s add hypocrite to your status of idiot. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAH spoiled spoiled spoiled self-entitled brats.

    PS – someone mature does say they are “waaay” more mature. Bahahahahahaha.

  48. People can fight back and forth with each other but the 100% true fact is that Kevin doesn’t owe any of us shit. I personally hope they just don’t make 5.

  49. @butters and we have a winner!

  50. You know, I’m torn on this one. SCREAM and Kevin Williamson are synonymous, in my opinion, and most of the franchise’s greatest moments have correlated with his contributions. I think that SCREAM 4 could be a nice bookend on the series – definitely a stronger exit than SCREAM 3. But knowing it was conceived as a trilogy, and that Williamson had already mapped out SCREAM 5, leaves me wanting more. (Though it sounds like SCREAM 4’s ending might’ve seriously hampered that plan.) I think that the biggest problem with the later installments in the franchise is that scripts were not finalized before filming, and so continuity was lost. As much as I’d miss Williamson’s writing and creative direction, if the story/script was locked in BEFORE production, there would be a fighting chance at achieving the originality and sharpness of the original film. What should not happen again is what we’ve seen go wrong with the last two films – namely, multiple writers, ever-changing scripts, and schedule postponements because the elements aren’t in place. Fortunately, I believe that Wes Craven has established that he needs to see a finished script before deciding whether or not to direct SCREAM 5. Seeing as there are no time constraints at the moment, the powers that be should devote their attention to developing a story worthy of Craven & Co.

  51. I am both disappointed and relieved. Disappointed because of obvious reasons. Kevin Williamson is NOT writing SCREAM and I honestly don’t know how another SCREAM film would turn out without Kevin’s writing. Kevin knows SCREAM the best and he is the person who is fully capable of picking the franchise back up from it feet (seeing how SCREAM 4 didn’t accomplish that). But on the other hand I am relieved because if another SCREAM film is to be made, then the die-hard fans along with the rest of the audience deserves to have a committed writer who can and is willing to sit down and write a legitimate SCREAM screenplay. No rushing. This gets me mad though because Kevin seems to have absolutely no respect for the fans of the film that made his career. Along with saying, “I don’t know. I’m not doing it.” he could have, at the very least, gave an explanation as to why he isn’t writing SCREAM 5. But at this point, I think SCREAM fans just have to accept Kevin Williamson’s choices and brace yourselves for a different writer. Hopefully SCREAM 5 does happen (because leaving the franchise off with SCREAM 4 would be a terrible idea as the movie was more of a Stab film than a SCREAM film) and we get a writer who is committed to making the next (possible) 2 SCREAM films a giant success. But my question is, with Kevin Williamson not being apart of the project, is Wes Craven going to direct? Because if he doesn’t direct then we can pretty much assume that Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette will not be returning. Which means that we can say bye to SCREAM altogether.

  52. Why are people question Kevin’s commitment, integrity, respect for fans, etc? He had his worked changed over and over again to save a few bucks on the budget. His ideas for 5 & 6 went out the window when Bob made him change his story for 4 to lessen the budget.

    Kevin WAS committed. Put your blame where its due and get over yourselves.

  53. It’s the Weinsteins fault, not Kevins fault.

  54. I’m not mad at Kevin at all, he worked so hard on this script and they ruined it.

  55. Kevin-please-write-scream5-al-us-fans-want-another-scream-and-another

  56. Good god, now we’re begging? Lol

  57. PLEASE, ONE QUESTION:

    Why does everyone says Kevin’s original plan wasn’t to end Scream 4 the way it did?

    Wasn’t the whole point of Scream 4 criticizing remakes/reboots?

    And wasn’t because of it that Sidney’s magnificent final line was indeed: “DON’T FUCK WITH THE ORIGINAL!” a line every fan says is Kevin’s…

    If that line is Kevin’s and Scream 4 is about critizing remakes….how is it that people think Kevin’s idea was to keep Jill alive as the new lead? Wouldn’t that be the complete opposite of what was intended Scream 4 to be?

  58. ok, those were a lot of questions, not just one, ha. but you get my point (hopefully).

  59. Maybe the new trilogy would actually kinda follow the first 3 themes…
    Scream 1- being satirical of horror movies
    Scream 2- same with sequels
    Scream 3- same with trilogies (which they failed)

    And…

    Scream 4 – (remakes/reboots)
    Scream 5 – could maybe be about going back to the beginnings of slashers in a way they twist the twists already twisted by Scream or some kind of theme like that?
    Scream 6 – Same, choosing a theme and go with it.

  60. From my understanding, the movie was supposed to have ended with Jill realizing that Sidney had survived the attack. Jill would not have been the hero, or even the new lead necessarily, but it would have set-up the storyline for SCREAM 5. By killing off Jill (and nearly every other new character), they may have seriously altered Williamson’s outline for the next film(s). Realistically, where is there left to go (without feeling that a plot has been contrived merely to warrant another sequel)? It seems like a lot of the major decicions came from the Weinsteins, and I wouldn’t blame Williamson for being wary. I do think his commentary on remakes/reboots was quite brilliant, regardless of the intended ending…

  61. I read on IMDB after the original Scream 4 script got leaked that the intended ending was: After the attack, Jill is being loaded into the ambulance with reporters taking pictures and calling her a hero. After the ambulance pulls away a paramedic tells Dewey, “We have a pulse” in regards to Sidney. That’s how it was supposed to end. Scream 5 was supposed to be about how Jill had manipulated everyone into thinking that Sidney was so damaged from previous events that she can’t make the distinction between reality and fantasy. Everyone believes Jill’s version of the events and question Sidney’s sanity. It wasn’t mentioned how the new murders took place or if Jill was the one doing it but the idea that a killer got away with it and manipulated everyone to make them believe Sidney had finally lost it sounded VERY interesting and very different. It really would breathe some new life into the series and give us something we have never seen before in prior movies. Since the hospital scene wasn’t Kevin’s original ending he probably doesn’t know where to go with the story either. If they would have kept his original ending, we have a clear path for Scream 5 to go. But instead we got the generic horror movie ending where the hero survives and the killer is dead. Nothing new. I don’t blame Kevin for backing out of Scream 5. His original idea for 4 and 5, in my opinion, was brilliant.

  62. After watching Scream 4 for the 5th time, I have decided I have no respect for the weinsteins. Whatever they did to the script and movie to piss williamson off had a major effect on the overall movie and the series.

    The weinsteins botched it…again. If the weinsteins bothered to read this website, where us scream fans give our notable and worthy opinions and have probably disected the films more than the weiners have, then they would have realised we want kevins ideas, not theirs. We want kevins movie, not theirs.

    After watching 4 again, I just saw one wasted opportunity after another. One boring normal crappy scene after another. One idea we’ve seen before after another.

    I understand why kevin won’t write it. I don’t even know how they can breath any life into this franchise anymore.

    Get joss whedon. Diablo cody. Hell, even shane black. Maybe even stephen king should write the damned thing. It doesn’t matter, because the weiners are going to rape and dumb down their scripts anyhow.

    Here’s an idea. Get paranormal activity writers to write it. They can give you a crap script and that way you can only make the movie better with your constant script jabbing.

    Scream 5 plotline: after jill and charlies rampage, videotaped of them start showing up at peoples houses just before a new killer strikes. Instead of taunting phonecalls, its taunting videos, websites, etc. They can call scream 5 “ghostface activity”. Least it will comment on horror of this generation.

    Who cares anymore.

    I give up on scream, the weiners, wes, kevin, and hollywood.

  63. You know that scene in southpark where lucas and spielburg rape indiana. They now need to do a scene where the weinsteins rape ghostface.

    I’m done now commenting on this franchise which is in the hands of movie molestors.

    The end.

    Fade to black.

    Roll credits.

    Cut.

  64. KW is awesome!! I am glad he got rid of Scream series.

    He wrote a brilliant Scream 4 script and Weinsteins fucked it. He was descent enough to endure torture for months by doing rewrites that those fucktards weinsteins forced him to do and butcher the script as per their whims. The franchise is dead. 4th movie had great concept but annoying meddling from weinsteins killed the franchise altogether. IF there is any other scream movie in future, it will be a remake of 1 with young cast.

  65. as a die hard scream fan i really would love a scream 5. i dont care if kevin is involved in it or not (i didnt think scream 3 was as terrible as everybody else makes it seem) but if scream 5 is made, ONE OF THE MAIN THREE HAS TO DIE! the same three people cannot survive five goddamn movies let alone four. at this point its too predictable and at least one of them needs to die to keep the series fresh. kill dewey and gale in the opening scene of scream 5 and shock the scream fanbase into shitting their pants. instead of having two killers have three. have detective hicks reveal she was a killer the whole time and have two of the other characters be killers along with her

  66. I’m so confused…as somebody else said here, I don’t want the last shot of the franchise to be a shot of Jill’s dead face!

  67. its not predictable if we have the three core central characters survive “el rico”! Please understand that its about going on the adventure with them and hoping that they overcome every obstacle as they did in the previous four films!!!! thats why they’re the shiznit! they cant be f*cked with! even for one of them to die would just go down so badly because we’ve watched them for four movies and we love them. and if one of them did die… they would have go out AMAZINGLY!!!

  68. This is actually old news I believe this came to light a few weeks ago. My opinion on this is Kevin is either acting like a big baby. Or he’s using the issues with Weinstein Company as a scape goat.So he doesn’t have to admit he doesn’t give a shit about Scream anymore.

    Back when Scream 4 was greenlit he was pumped about starting a new trilogy. But when Scream 4 was being worked on he barely even talked about it. To be honest i’m glad he won’t be working on Scream 5.

    There are plenty of other more experienced writers to do 5 and 6.Kevin’s problem besides his lack in writing is he takes too much.On his plate he’s got Vampire Diaries,then Secret Circle got started. And now he’s got a third series he’s going to be involved with.

    With three tv series being worked on how can fans expect Kevin.To be completely focused on Scream 5 if he were to do Scream 5. It wouldn’t be any different than Scream 4 and that was when. He was only involved with one tv show and speaking of the old trilogy.

    As much as I enjoy Scream 1 and 2 the original Scream relied too much. On John Carpenter’s Halloween let’s be honest here Scream didn’t. Revive the horror genre itself most of the credit goes to Halloween.

    But there are some elements from the original Scream to fall into number 5. Which is have more horror questions that’s what I really loved.About the original it’s both interesting and shows the killer(s). Know their shit about scary movies and build the suspense.When it comes to the chase scenes in other words don’t half ass the next sequel.

  69. I’m not suprised he’s not doing it.. I’ve gotta agree with a lot of people and say I’m prett dissapointed he’s not.. and I bet a lot of people won’t wann be involved in it if he’s not. But the scream movies were a great creation, and if someone out there thinks they can take kevins initial idea and keep it interesting for a 5th movie then I say go ahead give it a whirl. Ill probably watch it if it comes out. But if wes craven ever signs off the movies are dead. Gotta love hollywood, get ya invested in something and then take it away. That’s just mean. Lol I love scream though so like I said bring on someone new prove everyone wrong and bring those movies back to life.

  70. @daniel …
    are you out of your mind????????????? lets be honest, scream didn’t rely on halloween. it did pay homage to halloween however. scream revived the horror genre because it was the only horror film to poke fun at other horror films and their cliches all while being scary along with having a subtle element of comedy

  71. I’m a bit disappointed. But, honestly, he deserves to walk away from it. I would, too, if my scripts were completely changed, leaving only my BASIC concept. I say get a new writer who has a promising script. Kevin will always be the best, but I’m sure they can make a quality script if they try hard enough.

  72. @James if Scream focused on the other franchises equally then i’d say. That Scream revived the genre to pay homage to something would. Having one or two nods to that film,but Kevin threw in. A ton of stuff from Halloween out of all of the scary movies. That were mentioned Halloween was focused on the most. I’ll list below all the ‘homages’ for Halloween.

    Halloween trivia with Casey Becker in the opening on the phone.

    Billy Loomis’ last name was named after Samuel Loomis from Halloween and Psycho.

    When Sidney is first attacked at her home the killer lunging.From the closet and Sidney looking back after struggling.With the locked door were from Halloween when Laurie encounter Michael.And when Michael attacks Bob in the kitchen.

    Tatum saying ‘Wes Carpenter flick’ a nod to Wes Craven and John Carpenter.

    Jamie Lee Curtis talked about at the party by Randy,Sidney,and Stu.

    the original Halloween being played at Stu’s house

    When Sidney is trying to escape she falls from the roof.And lands on the cover ontop of the boat the same way.That Michael Myers fell from the Doyle house and on the lawn in Halloween.

    When Sidney attempts to call the police inside a patrol car.She is grabbed by ghostface the same way Michael grabbed Annie in Halloween.

    When Dewey is walking through Stu’s house music from Halloween is playing.

    When Sidney crosses paths with Stu and Randy outside the house.Randy is limping like Laurie did in Halloween.

    When Sidney attacks Billy in the closet that is suppose.To remind us of the closet scene at the Doyle house in Halloween.

    Throughout the original Scream you can find throw backs to Halloween.I’m not knocking Scream I love it but if your going to say. That Scream revived horror then that’s an out right lie.

    Kevin has said in the past that he’s a huge fan of Carpenter’s first Halloween. Having a few nods is one thing but Kevin throughout the film. Gave nods to Halloween now if he works in nods. From other films that would be great but to throw in all those. Homages from Halloween tells me either he lacks confidence in his writing.

    Or he simply went overboard on paying respect to Halloween.So if people are to say Scream revived horror then they’ve got to give Halloween. A large part of the credit if not most of it,and out of the four films. Scream 1 is the one that had the most Halloween references. So again I say Scream 1 depended too much on Carpenter’s Halloween.

  73. I GOTTA SAY AFTER SCREAM 4 I LIKED SCREAM 3 BETTER…I JUST THINK IT’S WAY TOO OBVIOUS THAT KEVIN ISN’T INTO IT AS MUCH ANYMORE…IF YOU WANT IT TO LIVE PASS IT ON…OR JUST LET SCREAM 4 BE THE ENCORE FANS NEVER THOUGHT THEY WOULD GET

  74. THEY NEED A SCREAM 5 BECAUSE PEOPLE WANTS TO SEE IT AND SCREAM 4 WAS OKAY BUT SCREAM 2 IS MY FAVORITE BUT I WANT A SCREAM 5! D;

  75. @daniel
    ok, believe me, i get what ur trying to say but saying that
    “Scream relied too much. On John Carpenter’s Halloween let’s be honest here Scream didn’t. Revive the horror genre itself most of the credit goes to Halloween.” is a bunch of crap. ur missing the point that scream was the ONLY horror film to comment on the entire cliches provided by previous horror films. i understand that halloween was paid homage to a little more than other films but other films were mentioned many times (the exorcist, terror train, prom night, and many more!!!!) google this to get a longer list. but its not about evenly commenting on each horror movie. its the fact that scream did it. yes halloween is a HUGE milestone for the horror genre. but scream was innovative and creative and thats why it is as big of a film as it is. idk how else to explain it but it blows my mind that you wouldnt get this

  76. @James

    I get that Scream turned the old cliche rules on it’s head. Like for example Sidney having sex and she still survived. And several characters drinking alcohol and living. Was a great way to break the most common reused rules to kill off characters.

    That’s what I loved about the first Scream it was based in reality.The characters knew about the scary movie rules and broke them.With some of them surviving despite it,but you can’t honestly say. That Scream revived horror by itself Kevin Williamson knew Halloween was popular.

    Anyone who was a fan of horror movies would have Carpenter’s Halloween. On their list of favorite movies and in the mid-90’s no film had done. What Kevin did which was throw in references from a film like Halloween. It was the references to Halloween that had horror fans flocking to the theaters. To see Scream and given Kevin’s history his references to Halloween.

    Are the red flags that tells he lacks experience as a writer.If you look at I Know What You Did Last Summer,Teaching Mrs Tingle,and Faculty. You’ll find references to Halloween it’s as if Kevin threw in the reference to compensate for something else.

  77. @daniel

    I completely agree to disagree with you. Why? Because I like horror, and I’m not a fan of halloween at all. I’m a fan of scream because its clever, witty, smart, entertaining, and I see nothing even resembling halloween apart from the occasional nod.

    Kevin williamson wrote a damned good script, and wes made a damned good movie, and it was born out of all the classics and the subconsious fears of mankind…not halloween.

    You can continue to argue your point, but I don’t think any major fan of scream would agree with you, and if they do, then I know now why the weinsteins made scream 4 the way they did.

  78. The interview is in regards to some fan film called “Scream 5: Generation” not the actual Scream 5, hence why he doesn’t know anything about it. It won’t surprise me though if Kevin will won’t pen Scream 5 if it ever gets made, which I doubt now, and I honestly don’t mind. I thought Scream 4 was the perfect way to wrap up the franchise. Anything else, except if it were really fresh and awesome, would be an overkill really.

  79. Bahahahahaha Baby? Hi kettle, this is @Daniel, you’re black.

  80. TROLL ALERT! Ignore & let’s just keep the converation going about Scream5.

  81. i agree with james

  82. i looove you honeybooboochild

  83. im wrong. i know nothing about scream. you guys are all right. im gonna get my fat ass off the computer, take my video game head set off my head, and go outside. maybe go for a run or something. i need to think about my life for a little bit.

  84. i like scream

  85. i really hope that he goes through with scream 5 though. i like all the movies. i dont know where they plan on taking the movie after scream 4. especially with a new writer.

  86. @Babycakkees;)

    I completely agree with you. I think you are completely right with your comment and i think its amazing that you love all the films. its hard to find someone that loves all the scream films these days. and i really appreciate that ;)

  87. oh yeah? how much do you appriciate it?

  88. a lot.

  89. oh.. well okay ;) thnx. yeah ive been told that im hard girl to find. so consider yourself a lucky guy ;) whats your favorite part about scream?

  90. oh stop making me blush haha ;) well, i think scream as a whole is a great movie but i think its really romantic when sidney and billy are uhh … makin out ;)

  91. really? my favorite part is when gale is like “ill send you a copy” and then BAM! sydney punches her face! haha. and i also like it when in part 2, that black bitch is dying in the movie theater in front of everyone and she got blood coming out her mouth and her vains are all up out of her forehead. we should get together sometime and have a scream-o-thon. what do you say? ASL?

  92. hellooo???? ;)

  93. haha yeah i was just gonna say that those are my favorite parts too! i dont wnna sound like a weirdo or somethin but we have a lot in common. like we both really like scream. yeah im down. i live in new york. im 16 year old guy. what about you?

  94. i live in south carolina!! omg we are ssoooo close!!! im 16 toooooo oohheeemmmgeee…. well we could still be friends? we are close! i could even just catch a train to see you. what do you look like?

  95. oh my god! i have family in south carolina! and i could go visit for spring break!!!! and yeah i consider us close. kinda like ghostface and gail when theyre in the barnyard and he’s ontop of her about to kill her. well im a little tall, like 5’2″, about 150 lbs, brown eyes, black hair. oh and have a pretty fuzzy happy trail haha. u?

  96. hahaha okay yeah that sounds like a plan!! you know what i love most about you? you take metophors from scream. and that shows quality in a man.
    yeah thats actually not that all. im 5’6. that means your face is gonna be in my chest. but thats okay. i dont have boobs yet so… i weigh 200-230 pounds. i kinda forgot. i havent weighed myself in ages! but im also a redhead. its hard to find hot redhead nowa days ;) i have very long beautiful dreadlocks. youd like it. we could do some alien vs. preditor forplay type shit. and hey! i have a fuzzy happy trail too!! except this happy trail is ALL OVER my ass. but same thing.
    maybe you can come over and brush it? and if one thing leads to another then so be it ;)

  97. wait… ur a redhead.
    bye.

  98. Catlover and babycakes. That was one of the most screwed up conversations I have ever read.

  99. Well i looked up Scream Generations – it’s listed as a fan movie so this information does no upset me

  100. without Kevin it wont be scream without scream we will die or dead when they mack scream remake

  101. I’m still hopeful that Screams 5 & 6 will be made with or without Mr. Williamson. There are so many wonderful and talented writers out there that can jazz up this trilogy for us horror fans. I’m also down with a whole new Scream movie in the upcoming years.

  102. I’m curious about what was vastly changed from the original Scream 4 script. I remember coming across it a long time ago and skimming through it and the only thing I remember being very different was the ending and the first real death scene. It wasn’t like the original Scream 2 script that had many changes and if people hadn’t come in and “messed” with that script then the series would have ended with Scream 2.

  103. I just heard a rumor that Neve Campbell is expecting her first child. If this is true, then Scream 5 will probably be put on hold for awhile longer anyhow. Enough time to find a good writer and come up with an amazing story & movie.

  104. Ring Ring!! KW: hello?, kevin speaking.
    me: Hey Kevin, I just thought I’d let you know scream 1 and 2 are my favourite movies and that you rock! you fucking rock!!!!
    KW: Thanx, but no, you, you rock!!!
    me: dont I jussst. I also wanted to let you know what a douche youve turned out to be, my advice to you, run back to the 90’s, grab your originality and write scream 5, what is this vampire shit? everyone is doing vampire shit these days, are you a follower, kevin? are you?
    KW: I dont…
    me: Um, Kevin, i’m talking now u little bitch. interrupt me again and ill cut you like a fish, understand? you see, thats what we need from you, but go write your little period seeking monster series, the weinsteins will make scream 5 happen for us, okay kevin, gotta go, Ive got some vampire series website i need to trash, tataaa.
    beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.

  105. @debbie salt…NICE

  106. UGh @DebbieSalt get over yourself you fucking loser.

  107. Neve Campbell is pregnant. Say Adios to Scream 5 and Sidney Prescott…..at least for a long long time…

  108. I read this also, congratulation Neve!

  109. I scrolled through these responses so I don’t know if anyone has posted this already:

    Scream: Generations and Scream 5 are NOT the same thing. If you go to IMDB and look up Scream: Generations, it is a FAN-MADE FILM that is supposed to be based on “Real Life” where Scream is a known and loved movie. If you search for Scream 5, there are no results.

    It is 100% possible that Williamson’s response that he is not doing the film is in response to either knowing that someone is making the Generations movie and he is not involved, or knowing that he is not currently planning to do the Scream 5 movie, but neither is anyone else.

  110. It could be possible that he’s referring to the fan film “Scream Generations” specifically, but even if he’s referring to Scream 5, I’m not too disappointed since I just want to see these last two films made at all, and while Scream 3 isn’t my favorite film in the franchise, I didn’t mind it too much with a different writer considering Kevin’s idea for Scream 3 was really dumb (IIRC, it involved Stew surviving the first film and breaking out of jail for revenge). I love Kevin’s writing of Screams 1, 2, and 4, but he’s certainly not the be-all, end-all of the franchise. Of course if given the choice, I’d prefer to have him back! :D

  111. Scream: Generations is a non-profit movie that is not canon to the series, NOT Scream 5. So there is still hope.

  112. I, for one, and AM INCREDIBLY RELIEVED that Kevin Williamson isn’t going to be involved with “Scream 5.” He is extremely overrated as a screenwriter. He should just stick to all his junior high soap opera type material and leave horror to those who actually have an appreciation for the genre.

    With “Scream 4″ it was painfully obvious that Kevin quit caring about the series. (Well, his original treatment for “Scream 3″ was atrocious in and itself, but that’s neither here nor there due to Ehren’s involvement.) None of the new characters were even remotely fleshed out. He shouldn’t have created a dozen new flat characters just to be killed off in incredibly dull and tiresome ways. We get it, everyone gets stabbed once, maybe twice, if they’re (un)lucky! YAWN!

    Regardless of any of our opinions, however, Kevin did get the last laugh because he took a nice stinky poo all over the series and peaced out.

  113. I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing further films in the series if they are handled by young and upcoming talent. I kind of think Wes Craven is a bit of a tool, too.

  114. @Shane-Are you out of your mind? Kevin Williamson is a GENIUS. HE left Scream 4 EARLY in it’s production. He’s original outline was WAY better than the final product. Ehruen Dumbed the characters down A LOT,cut out A LOT,and The Weinsteins made Kevin change a lot that’s why he got mad and left. You don’t know what you are talking about AT ALL. There are so MANY rewrites. Wes Craven was tempted to leave and so was Neve and the others. That’s why Laura Graham quit

  115. @HallowHorror- That idea wasn’t set in stone.And his original idea for Scream 3 was way better than that crap Ehruen gave us. That whole movie within a movie was just stupid and annoying. I’m so tired of Stab GIVE IT A REST. He screwed up Scream 4. Him and The Weinsteins

  116. @Maxwell-A long long time? It only takes 9 months to have a baby. And we don’t know how far a long she is. And they don’t even have a script yet so she’s good

  117. They should just get Marlene King to do it. From Pretty Little Liars. That show feels like a Scream anyways. Especially last week’s creepy episode

  118. @Maxwell-She’s already showing.So she must be around 3 or 4 months

  119. Neve is due around the Fall (Sept/Oct), if there is a Scream 5 script around that time and they plan on filming next year, I’m sure she would be happy to do another movie.

  120. I know how long a pregnancy takes. I meant that it took her this long to come back to scream. You don’t think she’s going to want to take awhile off to be a mom? Seriously, you’re crazy if you think she’s going to pop this kid out and be like “let’s see the Scream 5 script!”

    Also, Dimension posted about Scream 5 today on facebook. Check out their page.

  121. @Maxwell- She’ll have to do what her contract says. Like Beyonce who just had a baby about two months ago.She’s already about to start a tour

  122. Guys,guys, I get it, we love Kevin for SCREAM,I do,too. I understand that Weinstein’s had to have a final say in SCREAM 4,and it turned the movie into something not as strong as it could’ve been (Wasn’t bad,but I had some critiques). If Kevin is fed up with being jerked around, who can blame him? We would just need someone who can honor the series for what it is and write a final chapter to it. Let’s face it: Sid, Dewey,and Gale cannot do this for a SIXTH time, it would be ridiculous. 5 is a good round number (yes, it’s an odd number,but it’s solid). I love the trio as much as the next fan, but one (or more) of them dying (in epic fashion,of course) would build the story and give us some sort of closure. What do you think? And yes, I am one of the true believers that Kirby lives!!

  123. you can’t end with a 5. 6 rounds it out and ends it all

  124. I think the girl who writes the pretty little liars episodes would do the scream franchise justice. Her and wes craven can bring the movies back to what they were in the begining. I vote her for scream 5 writer. Anyone agree?

  125. Or marc shwan from one tree hill to write it.. either or would do the movie justice. Bring on scream 5!

  126. @Nikki, I agree!! I love PLL and it’s written very well. Scream 4 had Lucy Hale, maybe Scream 5 can add Troian to it. I find her a darn good actor. Please bring on Scream 5 & 6 soon!!!!

  127. What scares me the most is not kevin williamson but wes craven. I feel like if kevin isn’t on board it will be hard to get wes on board. And as bad as it would be without kevin it would be worse without wes. I say end it with 4 scream isn’t a movie you can just redo without the original director and writer. It would be a straight to dvd scream. And I really don’t want that at all scream deserves better than that. No to scream 5 without kevin and wes

  128. @reiko I think trojan is great too.. and marlene kind is an awesome wrier. Get her on board and wes craven and a good cast. And scream 5 could be awesome. I actually have a great idea for the cast and the new syd if they are gunna kill her off.

  129. $97 million worldwide box office. Scream 5 will be made- enough said.

  130. @nikki-I agree. I love PLL. But the season 2 finale annoyed with me with all the homage to Psycho. But that doll shop episode. CREEPY. We all should tweet marlene king and beg her to do it.MAybe her and kevin could work together.

  131. @jason.. now that’s an idea. Her and kevin writing it together. That would be one hell of a movie. And in regards to the season 2 finale of pll we she said in an interview last year I think that all the finales would pay homage to hitchcock films. Like season 1s finale for whom the bell tolls, except that one was much better. Hell ya let’s start telling her and kevin to jump on board. Lol

  132. I already did lol.And I agree they work rock it.Yeah I remember her saying that. But this last one was WAY too much.They copied down to some of the script lol. Her handle is @imarleneking EVERYONE TWEET HER and beg to do it with Kevin.His handle is @kevwilliamson TWEET PLEASE

  133. I totally forgot that Marley Shelton (Deputy Judy Hicks) is also pregnant like Neve. Maybe next year then.

  134. @Tattletail-Marley is about to have hers though. She’s atleast 7 months

  135. Yes. Thank you Jason! I do believe Neve is also due in Fall of this year. So with both of them having their babies this year. Maybe by next year both will be ready to shoot the movie if there is a script. Fingers crossed.

  136. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  137. im so disappointed. i was really looking forward to a scream 5. but without kevin, i dont think it wud be great. they can try, you never know how well it might turn out

  138. im so disappointed. i was really looking forward to a scream 5. but without kevin, i dont think it wud be great. they can try, you never know how well it might turn out

  139. @Tattletai-You’re welcome. But I’m serious we should all tweet and write letters to Dimension Films and Marlene King. We the fans are strong in numbers. They can’t ignore us all. And we made Scream what it was. They should hear us. We’re giving our money

  140. But wwho would we like to see in it?? Thats another good question.

  141. @nikki: Definately Neve, Courteney, and David. Maybe even Hayden?? I’d like to see more big stars. NO CW people.

  142. Besides the original three & maybe Hayden as Kirby. I would like to see Kyle Gallner (he was pretty good in the new Nightmare on Elm Street movie), Troian Bellasario and Ashley Benson (I’m a pll fan), Jennifer Lawrence and Dakota Fanning(?). I have to think about this a little more. I am coming up blank with names, but yet I’ve thought about this before. More tonight or tomorrow. Would love to hear others thoughts on who should be in the movie.

  143. I’d love Jennifer Aniston. Since they always use her as a reference (at least in the first three) they should use her in the new movie & have her slaughtered. That’d be cool. Also Jamie Lee Curtis just as a teacher, doctor or someone’s mom. That’d be cool also. I wouldn’t mind seeing Ian Somerholder either. He’s just gorgous. I can see him as a killer or a partner. He has them crazy eyes.

  144. News just broke that the Weinsteins filed a lawsuit against KW so now we know for sure that he DEFINITELY won’t ever be involved in the franchise again. That blows.

  145. Oh snap! KW is going to have to either write the script or pay up I guess. You can’t commit to something & then just walk away. Sure. I do understand that KW feels that the Weinsteins f’up his original script, but it does happen in this field. I hope they can come to some sort of understanding & we will get Scream 5 no matter what.

  146. The lawsuit has nothing to do with Scream 5. It’s about another movie called “shadows”. At least that is what I read. If there is another story about Scream 5 I’d like to know where I can read about it.

  147. @KillerMiller-“The Weinstein Company has filed suit against Kevin Williamson and his Outer Banks Entertainment in a dispute that arose out of a settlement between Williamson and TWC involving Scream 4 and a project entitled Shadows.”

  148. Tx again Jason! So this still has nothing to do with Scream 5. Just Scream 4 & The Shadows?

  149. i think, as much as i hate to say it, the scream franchise should end. it is a unique franchise, one that the original cast,crew,writer, and director kept coming back to do it, it was a special event and i love every single scene and every single movie but i think if KW says he does not want to work on a Scream 5 then i do not want a Scream 5. i do not want another writer to come in and sully this franchise. they do not know the characters the way kevin does, they do not know the situation the way kevin does. i do not want this movie to come out and not have the same kind of theme and feel of the other Screams. no KW then i fear no Wes and i fear no neve, david, or courtney and that would not feel right.

  150. You people realize that almost every mainstream Hollywood movie is re-written in some sense? I’m sure every Scream has been somewhat re-written, and the reason only one writer is credited is because a writer coming in must change 50% of the script to receive recognition. This stuff doesn’t happen in t.v. world, writers are truly respected. I’m sure that’s the reason Williamson loves writing T.V.

    Anyways, I still want Scream 5 and 6, with a young unknown writer at the helm. Scream is never getting Joss “The Avengers” Whedon and Diablo Cody is currently working on her first directing job. The girl from pretty little liars could be an option, but I rather see an unknown, just like Williamson when he wrote the first Scream.

  151. My big issue that noone else ever seems to bring up is that the original 3 aren’t going to sign on for another sequel. I love Scream 4 as much as any fan should but if you look at where we are almost 1 year from it’s release it’s almost like it never happened, zero impact. I can see david wanting to return for some reason just based on his personality but neve or courteney not so much.

  152. @KillerMiller-It know but that means Scream 5 might not be done.
    @Mike-They are already on contract with the next two installments, And so is Wes.

  153. @Jacob-Yeah but they completely rewrote almost everything Kevin wrote on 3 and 4. Changing dynamics. It would’ve been a better franchise with just Kevin writing

  154. Great. Replace him with Joss Whedon please!

  155. If they do end up making a scream 5 or a revamped verison there’s a ton of actors id like to see in a scream movie. And that would be good, especially if the same people were involved with filming. Alexandra chando would be good and shailene woodly and francia rasia.. maybe thomas dekker, chris zylka, pheobe tonkin, james lafferty. Idk there’s a lot of people I could see doing it justice. I just don’t want to see scream end just yet. I lovee those movies its part of my childhood lol. I don’t wanna get old just yet.

  156. kirby from the 4th one i thought she died but on the 5th one she’s alive how confusing

  157. i think that the scream movies are really cool and it would be soooo fun to be in scream 5!

  158. Well, technically he could still do SCREAM 5. The question was if he was doing Scream 5: GENERATIONS…. To which he answered he wasn’t. Because, maybe, his movie doesn’t have the generations in the title making the movie they asked he was doing a completely different one.

  159. I am not surprised he said No considering how the Weinsteins betrayed him with the fourth film and in a way I am glad they are not doing another one just how the 4th ended I think that should be it. I would only say yes to a 5th if they had not killed off all the new characters, its getting a bit tiresome that the trio had survived yet again to carry in part 5 and I think Kevin is thinking storywise its not plausiable to come up with something fresh or new.

    Blame the CW for Kevin’s non-involvement for the 4th film because of his contract duties for the Vampire Diaries had that not conflicted with the scheduling and the Weinsteins stayed out of the production like they should have part 4 would have turned out much more different I think and that will lead us to 5 and 6 like Kevin intially planned (a new trilogy).

    Oh well….lol

  160. NO TO SCREAM REMAKE!!!
    REMEMBER DONT MESS WITH THE ORIGINAL!! ;)
    SCREAM 5
    ^

  161. Scream generations is a fan film it’s on youtube

  162. i want scream 5 to happpen cuz in scream 4 one part in that movie was hard explain cuz part where scream killed the two police everyone told me theres a third killer………………

  163. i want know if anybody else knows there gonna make the in 2013 scream 5

  164. I don’t care who directs or writes the movie,I wanna see it no matter what,and I don’t understand why Kevin is choosing not to do the movie :P I love every single film no matter who writes it,it will always be totally different then a normal horror movie

  165. Carry On Make it now sceram 5 I Am Fed up With Waiting for it

  166. Fingers crossed we will start to hear some information soon. I really really want a Scream 5 & 6. I don’t care who writes it, who directs it and who the stars are I just want the f’ing movie. Come on Dimension Films, give us some info.

  167. im writing scream 5 right now

  168. Is everybody here high.. let the guy go and work on his Vampire Diaries piece of crap.. if there was a number 5 i think it’s going to be better off without him.

    Scream 4 was an absolute FLOP.

  169. Just get Robert Rodriguez TO WRITE IT!!!

  170. I’m sorry guys but SCREAM 3 for me was a ‘WoW’ ending… and SCREAM 4 was an ‘Okay’ continuation thing……

  171. Robert Rodriguez, i’ll agree with the idea that sir Rodriguez will do the writing for SCREAM 5 … He can also ask for sir Ehren Krueger and miss Iya Labunka to help him do the writing…

  172. I think its such a stupid move for Kevin, The Secret circle is cancelled, The Vampire diaries is falling on ratings, and i think he should pay more respect to the franchise that brought him to what he is now.
