“Transformers 4” And “Scream 5” Updates
Posted by LaDale Anderson on Nov 15, 2012 - 7:00:15 PM

HOLLYWOOD—Some big news has hit the waves of the Internet in the past week.  News surfaced that another installment in the popular franchise series “Transformers” will be unleashed to audiences in 2014.  The installment tentatively titled “Transformers 4” will not star Shia LaBeouf as Sam Witwicky, but Oscar-nominee Mark Wahlberg.  When I first heard the news, I didn’t know how to react.  The series has always been a fave of mine with it’s over the top explosions and CGI effects.

 

It’s almost unfathomable to watch a “Transformers” flick without Shia in it; for starters he is the star!  But I started to think if director Michael Bay is looking to bring new life into the series, what better way to do it than with A-lister Mark Wahlberg.  How the story will be written to capture Wahlberg’s character is still unknown, but it looks like Bay may be going for a more serious picture this time around, which could be a draw to a more mature audience.

In other movie news, director Wes Craven created a buzz on Twitter this week when he released a tweet regarding the status of a new installment in the “Scream” franchise.  The fate of “Scream 5” is completely in the hands of the public.  “Scream 4” was a decent chapter in the franchise, but not the box-office hit that many expected it to be.  It only grossed $38 million domestically, but globally the flick pulled in more than $97 million worldwide, earning its budget back. 

 

Craven tweeted on Monday, “No news on Scream 5 yet.  You guys really want another one?”  The tweet is indeed cryptic, and I’m inclined to think the inner workings of another installment in the popular franchise are already in the works. While “Scream 4” ended on a happy note, it just doesn’t feel complete yet.

 

Perhaps that reasoning is because original writer Kevin Williamson indicated when he came up with the idea for “Scream 4” it was the beginning of a new trilogy, which means a fifth and sixth chapter in the series.  I so want to know what ideas this creative genius has masterminded for Sidney (Neve Campbell), Dewey (David Arquette) and Gale (Courteney Cox-Arquette).  While no official green-light has been given for the sequel, this news can only mean a good thing for “Scream” fans.  So tell me are you eager for “Transformers 4” or “Scream 5?”
