Craven to Scream?

10.19.2009

Starting out with a good old fashioned RUMOR disclaimer, "reliable sources" over at Cinema Blend have stated the Wes Craven is headed back to the director's chair for the long-awaited new sequel to SCREAM.

Craven directed all three of the previous SCREAM films, so it seems logical that he’d be back for this one, except the last we heard from him regarding the project was this a few months ago:

"Bob Weinstein has talked to me, he's interested in me directing it. I had a brief conversation with Kevin [Williamson], I know that Kevin is writing. What I've said to Bob is I'm not closed to it, I'm not open to it, I'll be perfectly happy to read a script and tell him what I think. That's where it's at and I'm not expecting a script until August. I don't know what the premise is or anything."

Enthusiam that ain’t. But that was months ago, the August script has likely been written and read and maybe it was good enough to get Craven on board. Hopefully this is a rumor that can be confirmed (for once), and this project can possibly start looking like a halfway decent idea. Although in my opinion, even with Craven on board, it isn't.

Extra Tidbit: We're also told to expect Neve Campbell back in a role that isn't "big."

Yes.

One of my favorite horror franchises growing up. I'm definitely excited if Craven and Williamson come back.

But if Neve's part isn't considered "big", chances are either she'll be the killer, or she'll be offed in the first scene like Barrymore in the first film.

I promise

If they kill Sidney at the beginning of the movie, I will just step off my seat and get out of the theater...for they made me loose more than 6 hours of my youth watching an useless struggle for survival ¬¬

About Neve Campbell...

I just hope they don't bring her back just to kill her, that would be over-annoying pissing off shit. (After all the effort to stay alive in the three movies!) Better if they bring her to give kind of "advice" to the new victim, ala Randy. Or maybe as a teacher of self-defense to the new one (ok, that's stupid).

I have a feeling this is gonna scratch us where we itch ...Courtney Cox few words about this recently on Conan(?) as I recall-was reassuring and I believe she mentioned Neve's return? as well as her and hubby's role reprisal of "Gale & Dewey"- This is a good series,we need one more go around with it.

I've always enjoyed the Scream trilogy immensely and am looking forward to the new trilogy, but I have a feeling Neve Campbell's role will be small because that is more than likely how the first installment in the new trilogy will open (with her death). That's the only thing that makes sense. I mean how many people are going to come after her, really?

Why?

Is there really any story left to tell? I mean Neve Campbell's entire extented family and most of her friends are dead. How many serial killers are there in one city and why are they all after the same chick? Dumb.

Not written

The script hasn't been written (Williamson is still halfway through it). Recently he met with Craven and pitch him his ideas for Scream 4. It's all know from Williamson's and Craven's twitts.

I predict in a few years down the road someone will come along and make a subpar watered down remake of the first Scream i.e. Last House On The Left

Tidbit...

Neve back for a small role? I seriously doubt that. I think/hope she'll lead.

Scream is a favorite of mine. And if this is done right (and with the original cast), then I am definitely on board

Yeah because Neve Campbell has so much going on right now it would be hard to fit this into her schedule.
