Bloody Disgusting scored a pretty cool update on the status of Scream 4. Their unnamed sources confirm the report from last July that Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson are hard at work on early prep for a new entry in the Scream series. Williamson is handling the writing duty on the film and there is a good possibility that Craven will return to direct the film.
The film itself is said to focus on a new group of young characters, most likely high school students like the original Scream. Apparently they are trying to get David Arquette, Courtney Cox Arquette and Neve Campbell to make cameos in the film.
Personally, I think that this is the best direction that they could go with the franchise. It would keep it fresh and offer a ton of possibilities for future films. Scream 3 was a bit of a mess with an over complicated storyline and unneeded deaths (poor Cotton). Thankfully Williamson will be back to write the film after he didn’t write part 3. That alone gives me a ton of hope for the new flick. I miss good horror.
