In the "out of nowhere" category comes word today that The Weinstein Company has greenlit Scream 4. It must be fourth movie day in Hollywood.

The Weinstein Company released the following official statement:

"The Scream franchise has become a cult classic. Together, all three movies have grossed over $300 million at the box office, just in the United States alone. The fans have been asking for a 4th Scream movie for years and we're finally giving it to them. As far as details go, we're only in the planning stages and we may not get around to it for quite some time, but rest assured, it will happen."

Obviously, at this early stage the details are sketchy but it would be ultra cool if Neve Campbell reprised her role of Sidney.

UPDATE: It seems that some nasty tomfoolery is afoot. Bloody-Disgusting has contacted The Weinstein Company directly and this statement that was allegedly attributed to them on an "official" blog is entirely false. That's too bad, because the world could always use another Scream film.
