Hello again, for a while now we have been hearing of a possible reboot of SCREAM, mostly in the way that Blumhouse had an interest, yet nothing ever used to suffice after hearing that info, on social media there would always be a fan that thought he/she was sharing a link to an article that said fan thought nobody had seen, but we all had seen it!! It was now getting to be old news, and the main fact that we lost Wes seemed to make fans say ‘Leave it alone’.. which many agreed with..
Then we come to November 6th 2019..
Bloody-Disgusting add the EXCLUSIVE NEWS that SpyGlass are now resurrecting GhoistFace… (excerpt below)
While Craven had directed all four Scream films before his passing, various filmmakers would get behind the camera for a television series that ran for two seasons on MTV and a third on VH1.
All four films remained canon while the series would create its own mythology. It’s unclear if the next film will continue to be canonized within Craven’s universe or be a remake, but we are hearing that, as of this writing, Williamson is not writing the screenplay.
The fact that at this early stage Kevin Williamson doesn’t seem to have any involvement is a major thing for me personally, and while there were fallout’s between Williamson and Bob Weinstein during SCREAM 4, at least we still had some sort of contribution from Kevin, and apparently Wes was writing bits of the scripts too in between takes!! But at least Scream 4 was completed, albeit a bit stressful!
Then we come to a more recent date.. November 18th.. Rumors start that the original cast are set to return.. something that takes me way back in time to 2008/09 when the very early news articles were starting up about the trios return, and although they did end up doing so ill never forget one of Kevin Willamson’s tweets back then in early stages simply stating ‘She said she wont do it!…’ in relation to Neve Campbell at the time turning it down when first being asked to return…
Below i have another excerpt from Bleedingcool.com… in relation to the trios return again…
A new report states that while nothing is officially decided on (more labeled as rumor mill material) producers of the next Scream movie are actively interested in reviving the franchise with Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette. If true, this could mean that the response from fans has been something Spyglass is very aware of, and could potentially give us more hope for their take on the iconic horror film series.
Despite the fact that this is strictly a rumor, if there’s any substance it would mean we are one step closer to seeing the trio reunite for one more stab at the Scream franchise. What are your thoughts on Scream 5 bringing back our favorite survivors? Are you excited about a chance for more Sidney vs Ghostface?
While i have seen the mentioned articles here at the time of publication i haven’t rushed to publish it here, as its way too early for us fans to start getting just a little bit excited..
Like in 2008/09 it is just early rumors overall here, NOTHING is concrete evidence as of yet regarding the trios return, but IF a fifth film does come our way with original characters then i stand by my overall opinion all along i had regarding Scream 4 in regard to our regular trio!! Which was.. (Put them through hell if necessary, give them fights and scratches and bruises but DONT kill them).
I always said that for Scream 4 if we didn’t have 5 main people then there was no point, those wanted were Wes, Kevin, and the Trio, and thankfully we got it, even if Kevin did depart.. and with another film coming in future i say the same again, just with no Wes, for obvious reason…
