Wes Craven’s Latest Comments on Scream 5


The man needs a break, folks

If you really thought Wes Craven would be rushing into Scream 5, you’re a bit silly.

Yes, Harvey Weinstein recently stated that he believed Craven would return for a fifth film. Wes himself has said that he’d get first crack at it and would consider the job if the script was good.

But EW’s crackerjack team sought out Craven to see if he’d be moving into a sequel right away. His response?

“I’m taking the summer off. I directed and produced, and my wife [Iya Labunka] produced, both Scream 4 and the previous film, My Soul to Take, and they were both very difficult films. So we just decided, ‘You know what? We’re going to spend the summer someplace nice and not think about film for a while.'”

I’ve got an idea. How about a film called Wes Craven’s Summer Vacation. It follows the master of horror and his wife and the crazy antics they get into. Ultimately, the film leads into the fall when Craven returns home to find a script for Scream 5 sitting on his front step…
