Neve Campbell on 'Scream 5': 'I'm not sure they're going to make it'

Neve Campbell has cast doubts on the possibility of another Scream movie being made.

Scream 4, released in 2011, reactivated the slasher franchise after an 11-year break. It saw Campbell revive her role as long-suffering heroine Sidney Prescott, the perennial target of a mysterious killer known as Ghostface. Scream favourites Courteney Cox and David Arquette also returned.

Scream 4 failed to match the box office success of its predecessors, but still grossed a respectable $97 million (£61 million) worldwide after hitting cinemas in April 2011. That September, director Wes Craven (pictured) suggested that another instalment was more than likely, saying: "Odds are that there will be a Scream 5."

However, when a fan questioned him about the sequel on Twitter last November (2012), Craven admitted that he had "no news". Now Campbell has speculated that the series could be over for good.

Asked by Collider whether there was any chance of Scream 5, she replied: "We'll see. I'm not sure they’re going to make it, to be honest. If that were to come up again and they were to approach me, I'd have a chat with them about it."

Campbell, 39, will next be seen in a TV movie called An Amish Murder, which premieres on January 6 US network Lifetime. Scroll down and click 'play' to watch a trailer.
