No, Please Don't Kill Me, Mr. Ghostface. I Wanna be in the Sequel!
Here's the deal: Last week, it was learned that both David and Courtney Arquette had been approached about returning to their roles in the Scream franchise. Word was that it was to be a reboot, but thanks to Twitter (and Slashfilm), more details have come out from Wes Craven and the Scream scripter, Kevin Williamson. The details are this:
It's not going to be a remake or a reboot. It's a sequel. And not just one sequel, but the kicker to a trilogy of sequels. Scream 4, 5, and 6.
And why not? They pretty much tanked the franchise with Scream 3 (sorry, Scott Foley). It's not like they can ruin it much further. Word is that the Weinsteins have approached Craven about directing the sequels; he's amenable, though he hasn't seen a script yet (it's due in August). And while the Arquettes will likely be reprising their roles, no one else would (including Neve Campbell). Unless, of course, it's all a ruse, and -- in the end -- it will be revealed that Sidney Prescott was the killer all along.
So, there you go: Three more Scream films. That can't be worse than three more Saw films, though just as inevitable.
