8th November 2019 - Scream 5 In Early Development

Thanks to popcultureguy for the heads up.

We’ve confirmed that a Scream 5 is in the works at Spyglass, which picked up the Dimension library after joining forces with Lantern Entertainment back in March.

No details yet who will direct or write the next film, a franchise that was hatched by the late Wes Craven and scribe Kevin Williamson. Ditto whether any of the old cast — i.e. Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Rose McGowan — is coming back. Also we don’t know if it’s a prequel, a reboot or sequel.
