Harvey Weinstein says to expect more from the Scream series

So was SCREAM 4 satisfying for you? Do you need more? Maybe the film financially underperformed at the box-office, but Harvey Weinstein doesn't seem too concerned.

During an interview at Cannes, Weinstein told MTV with much confidence that the Scream franchise had a lot more life left in it. "I'm sure [director Wes Craven is] going to do a sequel, I'm sure he's going to do a sequel," Weinstein insisted.

While it may not have done so well here, it is still doing pretty well overseas, "Foreign [sales] are so strong that we'll do over $100 million worldwide. It's at $90 now, with about five or six major countries to go and a lot of small ones. We'll probably do $110 million. I wish it would have been better domestically. But it's not the worst thing in the world that's ever happened."

Last month, MTV also spoke with Craven who expressed his desire to make two more SCREAM movies, which would serve as part of a new trilogy. Craven said this, "When I had my first conversation with [screenwriter Kevin Williamson] about this whole thing, he had an idea for a new trilogy. And I think that was Bob Weinstein's thing also about waiting so long — if there were to be a 'Scream 4,' there would also probably be a 'Scream 5' and a 'Scream 6' sooner or later so we could construct a new trilogy that kind of stood on its own."
