Williamson to Pen New Scream Trilogy?

New Scream trilogy 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.

How do they know this? Via a pop-up window that appeared on the William Morris intranet, it seems, which you can see in its entirety by clicking on the sample image on your right.

Could this be true? Is The Weinstein Co. really ready to take that much of a chance that kids still care about Ghostface and his rather dull ways? Does this mean the 10’s will be the 90’s all over again? Ugh, now that’s a thought that makes me want to go into hibernation.

The screen cap also says that Williamson will both write and direct a remake of Curtis Hanson’s The Bedroom Window for the company, which seems just banal enough to make this all real. We’ll have an update for you very soon so stay tuned!

Remaking Scream would be an amazing idea...

The kids like the use of the word "rad," "awesome," and "tubular."

He'll write three, they'll pick what they think is the best script, and then hire Rob Zombie to give it a polish and direct it... I mean, it's for the kids you know!!!

Oooh, I hope he writes it as a deconstruction of meta-horror tropes. It'll be the cinematic equivalent of a mobius loop fellating itself.

There are still so many slashers from the 80ies left that haven't been remade yet! They shouldn't jump the gun by remaking a 90ies slasher deconstruction franchise before they have remade all of those first...
