    'Scream' TV Series Gets Greenlit, Wes Craven May Direct Pilot

    With two small screen prequels to big films already a hit this TV season -- NBC’s “Hannibal” and A&E’s “Bates Motel” -- and small screen adaptations of “Fargo” and “Goodfellas” on the way (and possibly even a sequel series to "L.A. Confidential"), TV networks are looking at other big screen prop...

    Interview: Wes Craven Says The Changing Pace Of Technology Attracted Him to 'Scream 4'

    This week, "Scream 4" hit both Blu-ray and DVD and while we had reservations when we initially saw it, it was still a lot of fun (maybe more-so on home video, which adds even more oomph to the wonderful, meta-textual opening sequence). There are also tons of delicious extras that give you a good pee...

    Wes Craven Says 'Scream 4' Was First In New Trilogy & 'Scream 5' Is Likely

    Well, by most accounts, both critically and commercially, "Scream 4" was a dud. Even though it rounded up all the original players (that were still alive) from the first installment and paired them with a bunch of newcomers, the movie earned the lowest of any entry of the franchise to date and unlik...

    Kevin Williamson & Wes Craven Will Wait & See Before Signing On To 'Scream 5' & 'Scream 6'

    Say what you will about the "Scream" franchise, but it's a financial juggernaut. Together, the low-budget meta-horror picks have so far brought in over $500 million and it's no wonder that Dimension Films are returning to the well nearly a decade after "Scream 3." However, the path to "Scream 4" wasn't exactly smooth sailing. Franchise creator Kevin Williamson, who originally penned the script, departed the film last summer, with Ehren Kruger (”Scream 3,” “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”) coming in and making drastic changes to the script with reports of cast members jumping ship or simply being unhappy with the new direction their chara...

    Wes Craven Says More 'Scream 4' Shooting Are New Scenes, Not Reshoots; Terrible Poster Arrives

    The Weinstein Company -- and the Weinstein brothers, Harvey and Bob -- are a curious bunch. They made their name with excellent foreign film acquisitions for the U.S. in their early days of Miramax, brought indie to the mainstream with the Tarantinos and Kevin Smiths of the world in the early-mid '90s, and then showed everyone in Hollywood they were the masters of the prestige picture campaign and Oscar dominance in the late '90s as well ("The English Patient," "Shakespeare In Love," Goodwill Hunting," and "Chicago" in 2002). Of course, all the while they had their B-movie shingle Dimension Films which brought the world Robert Rodriguez and t...

    'Scream 4' Trailer Arrives To Announce Your Horror McFranchise Is Back Just How You Like It

A Canadian trailer for the Weinstein Company's desperate franchise cash-in has arrived and get it while it's hot because the studio keeps taking down ...
