Kevin Williamson willing to sell Scream 5 & 6 ideas

I guess this is good and bad news all wrapped in one.  Kevin Williamson recently spoke about his new TV drama STALKER, and in the midst of it all revealed more on his proposed SCREAM 5 and SCREAM 6.
“It’s weird, when I pitched Scream 4, I pitched Scream 4, 5 and 6,” Williamson explained to a few journalists, including Cinefilles, following a panel for his new TV show Stalker at the 2014 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour on Thursday. “I pitched a whole new trilogy.
