Kevin Williamson teased earlier via his Twitter page that he’s “writing” and that it’s been a “late night.” After a brief chat with MTV, it’s evident that he’s hard at work completing the script for Scream 4, with the 5th chapter also on cue. (He tells the site he’s contractually obligated to Part 5 as well.)
We already know that stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette are all returning, and although director Wes Craven hasn’t fully committed, he has expressed interest and excitement over Williamson’s ideas. So, what can we expect from the next sequel?
“The fourth one is an ensemble. It’ll take place right now, 10 years later, and it’s going to take place in [Sidney Prescott’s hometown of] Woodsboro. We’ll have our three main characters, and we’ll be introducing several more. We’ll also be introducing a little group, a little ensemble of new castmembers. That’ll take us through the next three.”
The plan has always been to launch a new trilogy of “Scream” films as he explains in the video embedded at the end of this post. Check it out for yourself to hear more about Scream 4!
