Wes Craven’s ‘Scream IV’ to Shoot in May, Will Direct Until He Drops Dead

Anyone worried about Wes Craven retiring can go pick up tickets for the next 20 years. The horror icon tells the LA Times in a retrospective interview that he’ll be directing until the day he dies. “My goal is to die in my 90s on the set, say, ‘That’s a wrap,’ after the last shot, fall over dead and have the grips go out and raise a beer to me.” With that in mind, he hopes his next horror project will be Scream IV, the beginning of a potential new trilogy Dimension Films has slated to go behind camera in May. The article also suggests that My Soul to Take (formerly 25/7) should arrive in theaters this year. From Kevin Williamson, creator of the original Scream trilogy, the new film sees the return of cast members Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, along with a group of new stars, who can hopefully stay alive long enough to figure out the new rules to this one-of-a-kind horror franchise.
