Just in case you’ve been waiting on pins and needles for the grandiose wonder that is Wes Craven’s return to Scream, Scream IV (featuring terror hotties Courteney Cox and Neve Campbell), you may rest easy.
The fourth installment will start shooting this May.
And while this is good news, there’s slightly sadder news to come out of Camp Craven–he doesn’t plan to stop directing any time soon. Dig the word:
“My goal is to die in my 90s on the set, say, ‘That’s a wrap,’ after the last shot, fall over dead and have the grips go out and raise a beer to me.”
And hopefully, at some point, you will direct good movies for a change instead of the blood soaked torture porn you’ve been clocking out for years. But that’s not exactly fair–he’s done some good ones in there. I know I enjoyed Shocker despite myself, and Scream and Elm Street were worthwhile. But man, when he sucks, it’s just full on black hole suckage.
But still! Scream Four, this May, maybe release by the end of the year? Who knows!
