Wes Craven has said that a fifth instalment in the Scream series is on the way.
The director revealed that he believes executive producer Robert Weinstein is keen on making a sequel to Scream 4.
"Yes. The odds are that there will be. It is something that Bob Weinstein wants to do. He tends to do what he wants to do. So I am inclinced to think that there will be ".
The next obvious question, then. Is Wes Craven likely to be involved, and directing again? "I don’t know," he said. "My contract gives me first look. If they show me something that is really wonderful? Of course I will be a part of it."
In May, Harvey Weinstein said he is expecting a fifth instalment of the Scream franchise in spite of Scream 4's relatively poor domestic box office results.
Craven had previously claimed that he was in no rush to make Scream 5, saying he intends to take a break from films for a while.
