Funnily enough, I just re-watched all three â€œScreamâ€ films this week. I love those films (well, not â€œScream 3â€ so much â€“ thatâ€™s a bit of a Frankensteinien effort). Theyâ€™re so damn smart. And funny. And some of the performances in those films are gold â€“ ridicule me, but I think Matthew Lillard is an absolute doozie in the first film! And Jamie Kennedy has never been better! (Actually, heâ€™s never been tolerable since)
I envision it sucking â€“ hoping itâ€™s not of the â€œIâ€™ll Always Know What You Did Last Summerâ€ vein â€“ but look forward to the just-announced â€œScream 4â€.
This one has been on the drawing board for a while. The Weinsteinâ€™s reached out to the original cast and crew (including Wes Craven) a couple of years ago, to see whether theyâ€™d return for a fourth film, and although most of them refused to return â€“ the Cox-Arquette team is apparently keen; and why wouldnâ€™t they be? â€“ Bob and Harvey seemingly still think itâ€™s a viable idea.
The real reason behind the sudden addition of â€œScream 4â€ to the Weinstein Schedule, according to a chum of Moviehole (and WC insider), is â€œThat the Weinsteinâ€™s have to stick with some sure-things now â€“ they need the money. Theyâ€™ve tried to do different things, stay away from sequels and so on, but that hasnâ€™t worked. Theyâ€™ve been in the red for a while. Youâ€™ll start to see a lot of sequels and remakes out of TWC over the next couple of yearsâ€.
As for Craven returning in some capacity? â€œHe always said it depends on the script. But Iâ€™d say no chanceâ€.
Iâ€™m assuming that Neve Campbell is sticking to her guns and ruling out a Sydney Prescott return, and that the new film will be headlined by David Arquette and Courteney Cox-Arquette. But then again, the press release stating that â€œScream 4â€ is in the works does state that itâ€™s also a â€˜restartâ€™ â€“ so itâ€™s possible weâ€™ll see all new characters this time around.
First thing they need to do : Get Kevin Williamson back to write it.
