Scream reboot, really?

06.03.2009

Well it appears as though Hollywood has run so bone dry out of ideas, that the waiting period to reboot a franchise is now less than ten years. That's how long it's been since SCREAM 3, the last film in Wes Craven's seminal nineties slasher trilogy. According to Entertainment Weekly, the series' original writer Kevin Williamson is working on remaking an entirely new trilogy using many of the original cast members. Apparently he's already approached Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette to return. Deals have yet to be signed, and no word on who else if anybody, he's contacted, but whatever reason he may have to reboot this trilogy is beyond me. Besides, Skeet Ulrich and Neve Campbell are way too big to ever go back to the roles that made them who they are today, right?

This is absolutely ridiculous. Next, they'll remake the Hulk or something.

i kind of liked the scream series, predictable as they were, i always enjoyed them :)

having said that, i donīt think a remake is a good idea at all :(

Eeeesh...

Do I really need to comment on this? The idea bank in Hollywood must be as dry as Cloris Leachmans you know [link]

you know i hate to say it, but ever since Batman Begins was a ridiculously good "reboot" hollywood has been hoping to achieve that same level of success ever since. Can they not tell the difference between a great story on its own vs another familiar franchise name with a pathetic story trying to cash in?

Just to add to my thoughts, what if it was like the killer asks, "what's your favorite horror remake?" and then the person answers saying, "they all suck! Except the ones from the 80s like the Fly and the Thing. The 80s rocked, the new millienuem sucks hard!" :)

I hope

Hmm, I would hope that this would mock and satirize the whole remake/reboot craze. The way that the first ones satirized the slasher genre.

Memo to Hollywood enough with the reboots & remakes you are bastardizing the movies that mean the most to true movie fan. I'm still pissed off about the Nightmare On Elm Street remake.

EDIT: Ya just re-read the article it does sound like another sequel not a reboot, lets not mix the 2 words up people.

I'm sure a Scream vs. Jigsaw or some other crap can't be far off.

Since they like to go against the norm in these movies (while still feeding cliches) I always thought a cool opening would be the typical call from the killer to the girl alone in her house... except the perspective will be from the killer, hiding in the woods outside of the house, making the call. And we see him dialing and calling, we hear it ringing, and when the person finally answers, we discover that it's Sydney Prescott saying, "Hello?" And then blah blah blah, "what's your favorite

And then blah blah blah, "what's your favorite scary movie?" and turn the tables on an already tired plot.

I've got it, How about "Scream In Space!" Get it? It's an oxymoron because nobody can hear you scream in space! Oh man.

Holy crapfestzilla reboots, Batman!

What is Hollywood turning into? A Scream reboot with the SAME characters? That's like making a Terminator Salvation movie next year with all the same actors all over again for no reason. Wow. This is shockingly stupid.

That's it... now I WANT California to slide into the ocean after a grand earthquake. Just make sure Conan O'Brien and the 1 or 2 NON douchebags out there make it out first.

Reboot

If this is indeed a reboot, and not a straight sequel, this would be a worse idea than turning a bubble gum (Bazooka Joe) or a children's game (Where's Waldo?) into a feature film. There should be a rule that you can't reboot a franchise before thirty years have passed. Wait a damn generation at least!

No reboot just do 1 more installment

Do a 4th installment (to close it out)for the series-not a reboot...

This sounds more like a sequel than a "reboot". I feel stupid just typing the word "reboot".

...?

This is pretty terrible.

The only way it would have any chance of working, would be if they killed off Sydney Prescott, or another major character, throwing everything into uncertainty... alternate reality scream perhaps? lol

Pretty sure it's not a remake....

if they are bringing back the original actors. More like bringing back the series in a "big way". However, I wouldn't be suprised if this fell through and they did do a remake instead.

Seems like you're tossing the word "reboot" about a little too freely.
Sounds like it's a plain ol' sequel to me.
