Scream 4 is an apparent go, eight years after the last installment hit theaters. The news was buried in reports about Showtime’s new deal to be the home of the Weinstein Co.’s and Dimension Films’ pay-cable premieres. I haven’t read any details about the movie — it’s not even listed on IMDB yet, so you know it’s in the early stages — but I’m already wondering if I’ll see it. I’ve stopped doing horror (I like to sleep at night), but I could be talked into it. I saw the first three films, during daylight hours, and I’m a sucker for a self-referential script. What about you?

P.S. I wonder what Stephen King thinks about the idea: Can the Scream series still be scary?
