Wes Craven says Scream 4 not re-shooting, but adding pivotal scenes

By now you've read about the additional shooting that's been going down in Michigan for SCREAM 4. Whether or not you've been concerned about the movie because of it, Wes Craven, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, wants to put your mind at rest. Apparently, they're tacking moments to existing scenes, not re-filming them.

Here's Craven's say on the matter: “They’re not reshoots. We had a couple test screenings and we saw two scenes where they had moments you could add to and we just saw a spectacular opportunity. Bob [Weinstein] just said to me basically, ‘You go to your dark side and I’ll give you the money!’ [laughs] The two scenes were really good but we saw how they could be spectacular so we thought let’s just go for it. They were key moments of the script so we just decided to go back and go for the grand slam on them.”

Craven also says that the ending hasn't been fooled with: “No the ending is totally kick-ass. We’re not gonna touch that. [The scenes being added to are] one scene that’s kind of in the late beginning and one scene that’s a little bit later.”

So Wes says all is well. It's not uncommon for a horror movie to add a "scare" or two after playing to a test audience, so it might just be that this is the best thing for SCREAM 4. What do you think..?

Extra Tidbit: In addition to the previously announced Alison Brie, Brittany Robertson and Aimee Teegarden (above) have also been involved in the re-shoots.
