'Scream 5' Storyline In The Works
Buried within Wes Craven’s answers in a new interview with Arrow in the Head is general word that the Weinsteins are actively developing a Scream 5 idea right now which is a critical point of difference to the project up to recently being in a holding pattern.Thanks to Scream-Trilogy.net for the scoop!
SCREAM 4 certainly was conceived as the first of a new trilogy. Kevin [Williamson] sketched out a trilogy arc, that was the original concept. I’m sure the studio would like to do the rest of the trilogy, and it seems like the box office – the foreign sales – has justified doing another one. And then it’s a matter of a script that’s worthy of being the second installment.Overall Craven provides an insightful discussion as always, illuminating upon why Scream 4‘s aftermath scene was removed and how working with Bob Weinstein can sometimes be a real “scream” among other topics.

From what I hear, that’s probably what Bob [Weinstein] is doing right now, trying to get to that second concept for a second film.
