Ready For Scream 4, 5, And Maybe 6?

'Scream 4' is on its way -- and perhaps 'Scream 5' and 'Scream 6' as well.

In an exclusive interview with FEARNet, screenwriter Kevin Williamson discussed his upcoming return to Woodsboro and the triumphant returns of Sidney (Neve Campbell), Gale (Courteney Cox Arquette) and Dewey (David Arquette).

Unfortunately, fan favorite Randy (Jamie Kennedy) won't be returning.

"No. We're not that movie," says Williamson. "We're not that universe where you can bring people back from the dead. That would be just a cheat. It's such a disservice."

Williamson goes on to say that 'Scream 4' might indeed be the first chapter of a new trilogy.

"I am contracted for '4' and '5,' but the deal for '6' is not done," he says. "I mean, I pitched three films. The story is about returning to Woodsboro, and 'Scream 5' -- knock on wood, if we actually get to it, because '4' has to be good in order for us to make a '5' -- '5' will be a continuation of '4,' but '4' is its own movie."

Williamson also says the new trilogy might not embrace the "post-modern horror" approach of the original trilogy.

"I just think the most important thing is 'Scream' needs to be scary. If we make it scary, then I think we'll have done our jobs, and it won't matter whether it's a post-post-modern revision/deconstruction."

'Scream 4' opens in theaters on Apr. 15, 2011.

This is so boring, such a non-event, so completely and unutterably inane that no one even bothered to comment on it. Doesn't bode well for the movie, does it?

Nothing like trying to make more money on something that was over in the 90's!! The first Scream was good, after that they got stupid. But yes when it comes out on DVD I probably will see it, but not going to the theater.
