MTV caught up with Scream franchise writer Kevin Williamson to get whatever goods there are on Scream 4 -- the first in a new trilogy that the Weinsteins hope to bring Wes Craven back to.
Updates on three different projects have come in over the weekend via Twitter, and rather than do separate stories on each, we've got them all right here ... down & dirty, quick & easy ... just how we know you like it!
Writer/director/producer Wes Craven can add another item to his long list of accomplishments: mastering the 140-character tweet! Along with providing semi-regular updates on his upcoming project 25/8, he most recently touched upon the progress of Scream 4 via the increasingly ubiquitous Twitter.
The jury's still out as far as we're concerned as to whether or not "The Vampire Diaries" has what it takes to catch on with hardcore horror fans, but they may not need us anyway ... The show's first episode that aired last night appears to be The CW's most-watched series premiere ever with 4.8 million viewers (subject to final verification later today).
Has it really been over nine years since Wes Craven’s Scream trilogy limped to its conclusion in a cavalcade of convoluted plot twists and poorly staged murder sequences – the result of a villain so forgettable I was sure he hadn’t been in the film prior to his unmasking?
Kevin Wiliamson has gotten his priorities straight in terms of the new Scream films in relation to the rest of the stuff that he has going on in his busy, busy career.
Even though Wes Craven recently said David Arquette and Courteney Cox's return to the Scream franchise was pretty much a done deal, it's always nice to get confirmation. And today that's exactly what we got, straight from the mouth of Deputy Dwight "Dewey" Riley himself.
There's no doubt Twitter has changed the way that we get our information. From watching and taking part in revolutions to showing off onset pics from films, real time feeds have captured the imagination of many. Sometimes even some horror news stories arise, but usually they're hard to flesh out because they amount to something that's just under 140 characters. For these moments we now present Terror Tweets!
Just a few days ago we let you guys know about Kevin Williamson's new Scream trilogy that's being readied. Today the master himself, Wes Craven, sheds some more light!
Reboot. Redux. Remake. Relax. It's all the same crap, isn't it? Entertainment Weekly got word tonight that a potential reboot of Wes Craven's Scream franchise is in the works.
All right, this is just weird but it’s one of those things that I feel like if we ignore, we’ll be the only ones not talking about it. A scooper dropped us a line today with intel that Kevin Williamson is on board to write not just one, but three new Scream films, rebooting the franchise with a whole new trilogy.
