Harvey Weinstein took part in a Masterclass at the still underway Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland, where his company is screening a plethora of films. Indiewire writes from the festival with quotes from Weinstein, who reportedly is still pushing to get Scream 5 made. What’s holding it up? Brother Bob, that’s who…
Weinstein said that he’s urging his brother Bob, who heads Dimension Films, to make Scream 5 a reality. “Everyone lived in Scream 4,” he said, explaining that all the characters could return for another run-in with Ghostface.
But the big news is that Harvey hopes to wrap things up with a fifth Scream. “I’m begging him to do the movie and just end it,” he reveals. “We’ve milked that cow.”
Speaking of milking the cow, right now Wes Craven is developing a “Scream” television series for MTV. Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin are currently penning the pilot presentation.
What I don’t think the Weinstein brothers understand – or maybe they do – is that fans truly are clamoring for another Scream. Bloody Disgusting receives inquiries for updates on a weekly basis from fans desperate for any nugget of news. Well, here it is, Harvey is ready to end the franchise once and for all.
With a reported budget of $40M, the fourth film in the franchise took in close to $100M worldwide at the box office.
