Wes Craven returns for Scream 4?

The next installment of the Scream franchise is set to begin filming in April next year, and although stars of the first trilogy Neve Campbell and Courtney Cox have been confirmed to return, one ingredient has been missing - original director Wes Craven.

Craven has apparently been wating to see a finished script before signing on the dotted line, but in a recent interview, Neve Campbell has stated she is "pretty sure" he will return to direct the film.

The script is currently being written by Kevin Williamson, the man behind the first two installments of Scream (i.e. the good ones), so with his original cast and writer in place, the elements seem perfect for Wes to return to the helm.

The film will be set ten years later in Woodsboro, and is described as “an ensemble” which will introduce several new characters. Williamson has said that it will reference manga comics, Asian ghost girl movies, PG-13 horror movies, vampire films, M. Night Shyamalan movies and even torture porn.
