WILLIAMSON, THE SCREAMWRITER

Kevin Williamson says more screams are on the way.

At 32, he's the screenwriter of "Scream" and "Scream 2, horror flicks that were inspired by what he saw around him -- or rather, by what he didn't see.

"I looked around and asked myself: What's missing from the marketplace? The answer was a scary movie populated with young kids, so the young audience will see it," Williamson said in Friday's New York Times.

"It was a calculated business move. I was hoping it would pay off."

It did. Williamson signed a $20 million contract with Miramax, and "Scream 2" has already grossed $55 million at the box office.

More scary stuff is on the way: Williamson said he's already working on "Scream 3."
