Harvey Weinstein wants to milk the Scream series dry


You know what I love? When filmmakers just won’t let a series die. While Scream 4 did terribly in the box office, Harvey Weinstein seems to think that continuing on with a Scream 5 would be a great idea. Apparently, overseas audiences have been eating the films up, so there might be some more money to be made. Here’s what Harvey told MTV:

I wish it would have been better domestically but 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. It’s not the worst thing in the world that’s ever happened…. I’m sure [Wes Craven is] going to do a sequel.

You hear that, non-Americans? It’s your fault that there’s going to be another Scream movie. For once, our country isn’t to blame! You should be ashamed of yourselves.
