Back in April 2011, just before the release of Scream 4, director Wes Craven revealed that the sequel is intended to be the start of a new trilogy. The director also told us in September 2011 that Scream 5 is definitely happening, although that was the last we have heard about the sequel until now. Scream 4 earned just $38.1 million at the domestic box office, and $97.1 million worldwide, from a $40 million budget.
While making the press rounds in Zurich, Harvey Weinstein also spoke about the Scream TV series, which was given a pilot order in April by MTV, with Wes Craven directing the pilot. While we don't have a direct quote from Harvey Weinstein, he revealed that the series won't have much to do with the original movie franchise, representing a new direction with supernatural elements. We reported in July that Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie (Revenge) have signed on to write the pilot episode.
