We’ve confirmed that a Scream 5 is in the works at Spyglass, which picked up the Dimension library after joining forces with Lantern Entertainment back in March.
No details yet who will direct or write the next film, a franchise that was hatched by the late Wes Craven and scribe Kevin Williamson. Ditto whether any of the old cast — i.e. Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Rose McGowan — is coming back. Also we don’t know if it’s a prequel, a reboot or sequel. But that would be cool if they brought Barrymore back for a full film after she was in the opening scene of the 1996 original pic. All will be unveiled soon.
The four movies racked up more than $604M, and the TV series on MTV ran 29 episodes across three seasons.
Bloody Disgusting first had the news.
