Neve to Scream again

09.24.2009

Amidst reports and rumors of his company's deterioration, veteran producer Bob Weinstein is putting his focus on revisiting past genre franchises... and praying audiences will want to as well.

Dimension is bringing a number of familiar horror properties back to life next year, including SCREAM 4 -- which according to Variety has somehow roped original trilogy star Neve Campbell back to deal with a new murderous Ghostface (or two or three). Courteney Cox and David Arquette are already on board, and the company is also trying to get director Wes Craven back for what could be the first of a new trilogy.

The studio is also quickly pushing HALLOWEEN 3D into the pipe, with director Patrick Lussier (MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D) planning to squeeze it in before he takes Nic Cage on a road rampage in the 3D action flick DRIVE ANGRY early next year. Surprisingly, Dimension actually wants to release a HALLOWEEN in October this time.

Dimension is also working on a new CHILDREN OF THE CORN (unrelated to the Sci-Fi Syfy Channel's impending version), and sequels/remakes of HELLRAISER, SCANNERS and AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (Nooooo!!!). For projects with a bit less crimson, they're also getting Robert Rodriguez to churn out another SPY KIDS, and are jumpstarting Johnny 5 for a remake of SHORT CIRCUIT.

The studio is (finally) releasing THE ROAD in November, and the 3D update of PIRANHA in April.

Extra Tidbit: Considering the first SCREAM was essentially a satire of a genre that has since been ceaselessly satirized, is there an interesting way to do another SCREAM now?

Wham, Bam, Thank U Ma'am

This is incredible news. Yes of course they will find a way to make it good. Writer of Scream and Scream 2 Kevin Williamson is back with the franchise. Scream always rises above the rest of the pack (even 3).

Neve in SCREAM 4, YESSS! "Hello Sidney" Whaha!
Any Robert Rodriguez Project is awesome in my book. The man's one talented basterd.
Halloween 3D, YES!! I'm always up for more Myers! Bring that on!

Could do without the Hellraiser remake. WHY?! :o
Children of the Corn has always been bad (except for the original) so i couldn't care less about that.
And WHAT?! A "American Werewolf in London" remake?! Damn... Well, the might as well do it. Nothing's sacred anymore these days. :/

Does one of their studio meetings involve walking around a blockbuster and just randomly pointing at movies they want to remake? The Road is the only one I'll be seeing. If they do Scream 4 as a spoof of horror remakes it could be relevant, but I say stop at 3.

I was really gunning for Neve Campbell to end up being the killer in the third movie, maybe they'll finally do it. Think how trauma that character's been through and how much that would make sense?

Seriously, I am completely ready to spend life in prison for killing everyone responsible for remaking Short Circuit. I'm sorry, but does everyone at Dimension studios suffer from Down syndrome?
