Director Wes Craven appears to be testing fans reaction to the possibility of another Scream movie.
Wes tweeted: "No news on Scream 5 yet. You guys really want another one?"
Online speculation of a fifth film quickly went into overdrive.
Wes previously said last year: "Odds are that there will be a Scream 5."
Scream 4 failed to match the box office success of the first three, but still took a credible £61 million worldwide after opening in cinemas in April 2011.
Canadian actress Neve, 39, who has starred in the films since 1996, gave birth to her first child, son Caspian, in August.
Meanwhile, it was reported earlier this year that MTV was planning a Scream TV series. It is not known if Wes and writer Kevin Williamson are involved.
