Ghostface set to return as new 'Scream' sequel is in the works

After the hugely popular original trilogy, which began in 1996, and the successful fourth sequel that followed in 2011, we've been desperate to know if the much-loved franchise would continue.

Spyglass is also seeking to remake Hellraiser, which was the other major horror franchise owned by Dimension.

"Already can't wait for the new Scream film!"

Selection beforehand defined how Spyglass got here to get the rights to provide a brand new Scream movie, writing: "Spyglass Media Group was re-launched as a content company in March by former MGM topper Barber, Lantern Entertainment co-presidents Andy Mitchell and Milos Brajovic and strategic investors Eagle Pictures and Cineworld Group". After spending a few years racking up a body count on MTV's series adaptation of the franchise, Spyglass Media Group is developing a new Scream film to bring it back to its theatrical roots, according to Bloody Disgusting.

Fans were thrilled to hear of the news: "If you think i'd be interested in watching a new Scream movie without Wes Craven & Kevin Williamson involved then you'd be absolutely correct". I think Wes Craven would still be a part of it in an incredible way.

While Cox's Scream 3 bangs became a meme-able point of discussion this year, the video now makes a little more sense, as another installment in the horror franchise has been announced, possibly called Scream 5.

In Chile, tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Santiago again on Monday against rampant economic inequality. The interview came as the president announced a package of measures for small and medium-sized businesses hit by the unrest.


"Scream" was released in 1996 and spawned three sequels.

"Can Hollywood please figure out what the meanings of reboot, revival and sequel?"

It stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Skeet Ulrich, Matthew Lillard, Rose McGowan, Jamie Kennedy, and Drew Barrymore, Joseph Whipp, W. Earl Brown, Liev Schreiber, and Roger L. Jackson as the voice of Ghostface. "Not for me, but for those people who scream when they get it wrong", added another.

However, Neve, who played heroine Sidney Prescott, discussed in the past how hard she'd find it continuing the franchise without Wes directing. Why, you ask? Because I love Scream! Wes Craven passed away. he was the reason those movies were good.

Inspired by the real-life serial killer dubbed the Gainesville Ripper (it happened in my hometown when I was in kindergarten), SCREAM was influenced by screenwriter Kevin Williamson's passion for fright flicks such as John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN.
