It looks like I’ll be eating my words as Dimension Films has greenlit Scream 4 to shoot this spring with a release date of April 12, 2011 — more than a decade after Scream 3. Wes Craven’s directing and Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox Arquette are reprising their roles along with a group of young actors.
Dimension said its 2011 slate focuses on continuing its most successful franchises. The original “Scream” grossed more than $170 million worldwide in 1996; “Scream 2” also took in more than $170 million and “Scream 3” topped $160 million after it was released in 2000.
Craven helmed all three “Scream” pics with Campbell, Arquette and Cox Arquette starring.
“‘Scream’ has been such an integral part of Dimension’s history, and I look forward to continuing the franchise,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Co.
TWC’s most recent releases are “Nine” and “Youth in Revolt.” Dimension is set to open “Piranha 3D” on Aug. 27.
