‘Scream 4’ to shoot this spring

Wes Craven to direct original thesps in horror sequel

Dimension Films has greenlit “Scream 4” to shoot this spring with a release date of April 15, 2011 — more than a decade after the release of “Scream 3.”

Wes Craven will direct and Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox Arquette will reprise their roles along with a group of younger thesps.

Dimension said its 2011 slate focuses on continuing its most successful franchises. The original “Scream” grossed more than $170 million worldwide in 1996; “Scream 2” also took in more than $170 million in 1997 and “Scream 3” topped $160 million after it was released in 2000.

Craven helmed all three pics, which starred Campbell, Arquette and Cox Arquette.

” ‘Scream’ has been such an integral part of Dimension’s history, and I look forward to continuing the franchise,” said Dimension Films chief Bob Weinstein, who is also co-chairman of the Weinstein Co.

Dimension is set to open “Piranha 3D” on Aug. 27.
