Wes Craven Talks Scream 4 and the New Trilogy


Wes Craven's Scream 4 is nearing ever closer, but the road leading up to Scream 4, has never been an easy ride, there have been many obstacles and problems along the way which could have jeopardized the whole production. But things all worked out well in the end and now Wes Craven talks about the subject at hand.

The guys over at Scream-Trilogy recently scanned some of the excerpts from the UK's Total Film magazine of Wes Craven's interview and you can read below, what Craven had to say. Including the next trilogy in the Scream franchise.

"During production, Craven tweeted that he was “no longer in control of the script” as Scream 3 writer Ehren Kruger came in to rework Williamson’s draft. “I was just stating the fact,” he recalls. “In some ways it’s a Wes Craven film, and in way it’s not entirely, because it’s not a script I have control of. It’s ultimately controlled by what the studio wants in the script. My job is much more bringing whatever experience and expertise and creativity I can.” He pauses. “Look, there was a bumpy period when things shifted over from Kevin to Ehren. I signed up to do a script by Kevin and unfortunately that didn’t go all the way through the shooting. But it certainly is Kevin’s script and concept and ideas and themes.”

Craven goes on to talk about the possibility of the new Scream trilogy;

“When I initially met with Kevin, he sketched out what the next two would be, and I found it really fascinating,” he concludes. “A lot depends on whether they come up with scripts to flesh out. But certainly, I’m up for it, if the script is there. It’s a fascinating thing to do two trilogies in a career.”

If Scream 4 does well, and I'm pretty sure it will then I'm certain Scream 5 & 6 will definately happen but can they really keep it going?
