Screenwriter Kevin Williamson has confirmed on twitter that filming has wrapped on the upcoming fifth instalment of the ‘Scream’ franchise; titled simply ‘Scream’.
That’s a wrap on Scream, which I’m excited to announce is the official title of the next film! Nearly 25 years ago, when I wrote Scream and Wes Craven brought it to life, I could not have imagined the lasting impact it would have on you, the fans. (1/3) pic.twitter.com/RCuhVUclG4
