Harvey Weinstein Wants to Bring An End to the SCREAM Franchise With SCREAM 5!
Happy Monday everyone! It was a fun weekend fueled by booze and rock and roll for me, but I'm excited to be back and even more excited to be back with a juicy nugget like this one.
Attention all you Scream fans, there is hope yet for us to see Ghostface on the big screen one last time! If you're anything like me, you're more than a little upset that MTV has recruited Wes Craven to develop his 90's slasher franchise into a series so this news is like Christmas morning for a six year old.
Here's the scoop: Harvey Weinstein is giving it his all, trying to convince his brother Bob (who heads Dimension Films) to wrap up the franchise with one final film, Scream 5, so that we can all say goodbye to Sid Prescott, Dewey, Gale and of course, Ghostface for good. As Harvey says, "We've milked that cow dry", and he wants to lead her out to pasture.
I am so excited to hear this, all that I've been wanting is one more romp in ze hay on the big screen and was pretty devastated when talks of a series on MTV (of all stations) began making the rounds on the 'ol internets. Now all that's left to do is play the waiting game and hope and pray that Bob begins to see things the way his brother does.
