Wes Craven is finishing up his press rounds for the upcoming horror sequel Scream 4, and the director seems pretty confident that this latest chapter is set to kick off a whole new trilogy. Back in October, Craven revealed that screenwriter Kevin Williamson's initial intension was to create three new movies that tied in with the first trilogy.

He went onto explain more with the following.

"When I had my first conversation with [screenwriter Kevin Williamson] about this whole thing, he had an idea for a new trilogy. And I think that was Bob Weinstein 's thing also about waiting so long - if there were to be a Scream 4,' there would also probably be a Scream 5 ' and a 'Scream 6' sooner or later so we could construct a new trilogy that kind of stood on its own. I think a very significant indicator of the dedication that Bob Weinstein has to this franchise is not doing the serious 'Scream' movie again for a long time. Not only has the audience been deprived of it for a long time, but enough time and events in the young characters' lives had a chance to occur. It's a process that I think all of us go through, trying to stay fresh and not repeating our last acts. What is next? What thoughts are in my mind that are original, thoughts that even surprise me, as opposed to looking up and going, 'Oh, I guess I can do one of those. I guess I can make a zombie movie!' We just need to keep it fresh and, in a sense, inspired. The thought that you can't even intellectually sit down necessarily and come up with something, but then a thought comes and hits you in the middle of the shower - that's your deepest subconscious creativity talking to you."

Scream 5 has not been given the green light at this time. An announcement can be expected shortly after Scream 4 debuts at the box offices, if the grosses are as to be as expected.

Scream 5 is in development and stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette.

    The movie business is really running out of unique ideas that they are starting to try and bring back what has been dead for a long time that it would be insane to even think of bringing it back....... The Mime hopes that it is entertaining but.....blanks

    @Mutant second one had 2 killers. Also you're idea on bringing back one of the original killers is one of the dumbest things. Lack of blood? faint? notice Sydney and go on a killing spree? Jese that just sounds terrible

    hey mutant sorry to let ya know scream 2 had two killers because it was billys mom and one of sidney's friends so and the third one only had one and it was her brother and both killers in the first movie died

    The first film has two killers, the second had only one, then the third had only one. If it were me, I would bring back one of the killers from the first film since everyone thought he died but didn't die.

    As I was saying about the franchise being dead, well it has been dead since the 90's. Wes and crew decided not to do any more and now all of a sudden there's interest in more films.
    One of the original killers may not be dead, yes we saw both being killed but my point is one of them may have fainted from lack of blood - years later the character sees Sidney.
    His mind snaps and he goes on a killing spree once again.
    It's the only way to continue this franchise and we won't know which of the two is the killer.

    this franchise has been dead for a long time, it lacks one lone killer, a despite killer, a killer that was never dead to begin with.
