Scream 4 didn't perform as well as expected at the box office, but that doesn't mean that we won't see Scream 5. During a recent interview, Wes Craven gave some more information on the status of future sequels and his involvement.

"Yes. The odds are that there will be (a Scream 5). It is something that Bob Weinstein wants to do. He tends to do what he wants to do. So I am inclined to think that there will be (another sequel). Whether I will be a part of it or not? I don't know. My contract gives me the first look. If they show me something that is really wonderful? Of course I will be a part of it."

"Most people think that I sit around and think up ideas. Then I send them to the studio. With Scream, that is not the case. Kevin Williamson has been the writer since day one. He has been the writer on all of these projects, at least at the beginning of them. That relationship with him and Bob Weinstein is very old, and close. Typically what will happen is that Bob Weinstein or Kevin Williamson will come up with a new idea, and they will pitch it to one or the other. If they both like it, they will toss it around and see if they can develop it into an overarching concept. Then I get the telephone call. ..."

Looking at other franchises that the Weinsteins oversee, such as Hellraiser, Halloween, and Childern of the Corn, we have no doubt that we'll see another Scream film in the future. As for when we'll see it or if it will be a direct sequel (versus a reboot), your guess is as good as ours.
