Wes Craven’s original 1996 classic Scream recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, and many fans are left wondering what’s next for the franchise. Scream 5 anyone? We would love to see the Ghostface make a return to the big screen one day, an iconic masked killer who terrorized the small town of Woodsboro.
In a recent interview with ET Online, Williamson and Campbell shared their thoughts on possibly continuing the franchise:
“Wes and I, when we were starting Scream 4, we had plans for Scream 5 and 6,” Williamson told the outlet. “Now without Wes, I feel like you have to sort of answer the questions of how and why, and I don’t know how to do it without Wes and I don’t know why to do it.”
Campbell says Scream 5 would be a challenge without wes:
“It would be tough to do it without Wes,” Campbell said. “His vision was so clear and he was so good. I think it would be painful. It doesn’t mean it would never happen, but it would be challenging. Nobody is talking about it at the moment.”
It seems unlikely without Wes Craven’s guidance and vision, but only time will tell. Williamson also noted that if someone could figure out how to do it, he’d gladly buy a ticket.
