The horror sequel Scream 4 is not performing well at the domestic box office, taking in just $37.5 million after five weeks in theaters. However, The Weinstein Company's Harvey Weinstein is certain that Scream 5 will happen, with Wes Craven returning to direct. Here's what Harvey Weinstein had to say below.
Harvey Weinstein believes Scream 5 will happen with Wes Craven
"I'm sure [director Wes Craven
is] going to do a sequel, I'm sure he's going to do a sequel."
Harvey Weinstein also indicated that the foreign numbers are strong on Scream 5, which is always good news for a potential sequel in development.
"Foreign [sales] are so strong that we'll do over $100 million worldwide. It's at $90 now, with about five or six major countries to go and a lot of small ones. We'll probably do $110 million. I wish it would have been better domestically. But it's not the worst thing in the world that's ever happened."
Back in April, Wes Craven revealed that screenwriter Kevin Williamson has a whole new trilogy mapped out, which starts with Scream 4. You can to read on for more details about the trilogy, and you can for the video interview with Harvey Weinstein.
