Nearly 11 years after the original release of Scream 3, director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson are making Scream 4. Fans of the movie, myself included, will have to wait until April 15, 2011 however and the anticipation is murderous. Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox Arquette and David Arquette w[ill be back] for the fourth installment, and it couldn't come at a better time. With Never Campbell hardly seen or heard from anymore, and Courtney's starring role in the hit TV show Cougar it seems like an opportune time to rejuvenate Campbell's career and bank off of Courtney's success from the past year.
The franchise is a money making empire for a scary movie. The 1st movie, Scream, has been highly regarded as one of the greatest horror films of all-time. Boxofficemojo details the figures of the original 3 movies:
The first Scream was a surprise hit in 1996, grossing $103.1 million. Following its success, Scream 2 was quickly put together and banked $101.3 million a year later. Scream 3 was released more than two years later, and its slightly lower $89.1 million take seemed to put an end to the series for the time being. Worldwide, all three movies made over $500 million combined.In other movie news, this is absolutely ridiculously nuts - Avatar's total Worldwide Gross as of March 22, 2010:
