Ok, I am going to call this one right here. This is a bad idea. A horrible idea. An idea almost as bad as Jason Voorhees in space. I am one of those people that loved the trilogy and take pride in my DVD box set, but even I do not want another movie in this series and ruin what has turned out to be a great trilogy. If anyone is listening and this rumor turns out to be true, please do not this! Read inside for all the horrible details.
Could there be a sequel to the popular SCREAM trilogy in the works already? According to our latest scooper the answer to that question is…of course there is!
Contacting us yesterday, the individual explained how they came by this information (which we’re keeping confidential for fear of reprisal to the original source.) According to them, Miramax and its specialty offshoot Dimension Films are developing a number of ideas for possible fruition, some of which are original works while others could be sequels to past Miramax/Dimension films. “As you probably already know, they’re doing a lot of ‘em. Lots direct to DVD. And it looks like there is more on the way,” wrote our scooper before plunging on to the meat of the matter.
“There’s talk of a new SCREAM movie, heralded by producer Cath Konrad, that’s supposed to get into gear next year sometime,” they add. “What upset me was hearing that it wouldn’t be a Kevin Williamson – Wes Craven film. It’ll be penned and no doubt directed by some other unnamed hack. OK, so as far as [X] knows, it’ll have the original cast in it – but who cares if it isn’t Craven?! I think they’ve been thinking about doing another one for a couple of years and have seen a good bunch of treatments…
“And why isn’t Williamson involved? He’s apparently turned his attention to simply producing stuff. They’ve put him on another project called BACKWATERS, which is a voodoo-thriller starring unknowns.”
