With two small screen prequels to big films already a hit this TV season -- NBC’s “Hannibal” and A&E’s “Bates Motel” -- and small screen adaptations of “Fargo” and “Goodfellas” on the way (and possibly even a sequel series to "L.A. Confidential"), TV networks are looking at other big screen properties to exploit for easy brand name recognition. Their latest catch? A certain post-modern horror series from the nineties.

Last fall, Wes Craven kept some kind of dim hope alive that a "Scream 5" might get made, it doesn't look like that's going to happen. While "Scream 4" managed to make $97 million worldwide, it was the first in the series to fail to crack $100 million, but most crucially, was poorest performer of the lot. Domestically, it couldn't even do half of what "Scream 3" did. But since franchises never say die, it looks like the concept may live on.
