Scream 4 Has Wes Craven And A Release Date

Dimension film has green lit Scream 4, and it will shoot this spring under Wes Craven’s direction.  The release date has been set for April 15th 2011 which is more than 10 years since the release of Scream 3.  Craven directed the first three films, and it’s only appropriate that he continues the franchise.  I’m a fan of the Scream franchise, not sure how they will adapt to the changing times and ways of horror movies we see today.  Low cut dresses, facebook and cell phones?  Damn I’m good.

The Facts:

  • Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette have all committed to the fourth film.
  • Scream 4 is being written, concurrently with a script for a fifth film, by series screenwriter Kevin Williamson.
  • The movie will be set ten years later in Woodsboro, and is described as “an ensemble” which will introduce several new characters.
  • Williamson has said that Scream 4 will reference manga comics, Asian ghost girl movies, PG-13 horror movies, vampire films, M. Night Shyamalan movies and even torture porn.
