Maybe during this one, Courtney and David will get back together in real life! Each of these movies does seem to mark a stage for them.
Wondering if they'll do a "direct sequel" to the original, which is all the rage in horror franchises these days, a la Halloween. Ignoring 2, 3, and 4, and doing its own new thing. Given that we'll never have another by Craven, I guess now would be the time. Though I'll always wonder about the rumored 5 and 6 originally planned.
But just imagine a direct sequel. Maybe Sidney's completely crippled emotionally and never left Woodsboro. Her dad and Randy are still alive, there and doing their thing. Instead of the older brother guardian type, Dewey hates Sidney, resenting her and blaming her for Tatum's death. Gale is still a trashy hateful tabloid type. The killer turns out to be Billy's mother once again, but this time played by Laurie Metcalf's daughter, just like in Young Sheldon.
A problem is that this just ushers in the idea of constantly going in different directions, and eventually there are ten timelines all bursting from the original. And that they're constantly being done by people who said they were fans of the original growing up almost makes it feel like we're giving way to legitimizing fan-fiction.
