Scream 4 and more

Jul. 14, 2008by: Dave Davis
If you're suffering from the current economic deterioration and a few questionable business decisions, what can you do? Why not form a partnership with Showtime and make another SCREAM movie?

Okay, that may not be the perfect solution for everyone, but it's good enough for the Weinstein Co., who are doing that very thing. TWC are no longer flying solo, having formed a "long-term strategic partnership" with the cable giant, which will provide an assist on the Weinsteins' current and future slate.

That future slate apparently involves yet another stabby adventure of "Ghostface"/"Father Death". SCREAM 4 was officially announced as part of the deal, along with PIRANHA 3D, remakes of Cronenberg's SCANNERS and Kurosawa's THE SEVEN SAMURAI, and THE SIX BILLION DOLLAR MAN... plus the recently mobilized projects NINE and INGLORIOUS BASTARDS.

No further details on SCREAM 4 were offered, but it's safe to assume it will involve one or more people wearing a Munch-inspired mask and slicing familiar actors into messy piles.
Extra Tidbit: In SCREAM 3, Jamie Kennedy posthumously laid down the "rules" for contending with a killer in the concluding chapter of a trilogy. If only he were alive to tell us what to do in a fourth. R.I.P., Jamie Kennedy.

My bad. But I still think Williamson should be involved.

I agree

A Scream 4 isn't the way to go here. Still, if they're going to do something stupid, they should at least be smart about it. Get Kevin Williamson to write the script. He did, after all, write the others.

Whats up with the Weinsteins? I used to have so much more respect for them. The 6 billion dollar man? Scream 4? SHOWTIME? The only thing on Showtime worth watching his Dexter (my favorite) whatever. Benj is right. I liked all the screams too but a fourth is a way to cash in and it doesnt WORK in this case. It worked (kinda) for Indie it worked for Die Hard but it WONT work for this. Sorry. Prove me wrong.

Only way Scream 4 could work is if they made Neve Campbell the killer...think about it, it could be a really cool spin....

Scream 4....meh, whatever. couldnt really care less. i have no problem with the others and it is not like they are going to ruin a CLASSIC. speaking of, i really cant believe they actually plan on going forward with the Seven Samurai remake. if it is a direct remake... they should be shot, if it is a remake set in a different setting.... The Magnificent Seven should be enough, if they change setting and strip story down to bare, "7 people, protect someplace" there is no need to mention the word

I just don't see it working at this point. Even with a 'New Nightmare' kind of plot. Although that would open up the chance for Kennedy aka Randy Meeks to return to the franchise but to me that would be the only part worth watching. Kiddo, you're not the only one who liked them. Scream is one of my favorite horror movies and I didn't loath the sequels. I just don't see 4 being a good idea at all.

I'm assuming Dave meant that we haven't seen Kennedy do anything decent since that Scream 3...meaning he's "dead" to the movie world.

Unless Jamie Kennedy died at some point and I completely missed it, and IMDB did as well, maybe you should rewrite the Extra TIdbit to say Randy Meeks, because it's kind of misleading...

Also coming is "I Think Know What You Did A Couple Summers Back. . .Although Some Details Are Fuzzy."

Really? Scream 4? Is that the best they can do?

Depends

The only way a Scream 4 will work is if it is done the way Wes Craven's New Nightmare was (taking place in the real world with the actors playing themselves, etc).
