Threesome in Scream 4

“Scream” is one of my favourite films of the ’90s. It’s smart. It’s clever. It’s funny. It’s scary. It’s well-performed. It’s Kevin Williamson. It was the big film that first year of college for me – well that, and the re-release of the original “Star Wars” trilogy.

I saw the film on opening night. What I remember about it is that the theater was near dead empty! I remember taking that as a bad sign initially – and then the movie started. Fifteen minutes into the thing (the whole Drew Barrymore sequence and all) I was sold. This thing was a cinematic pool party and I loved everything that floated my way. Particularly loved Williamson and director Wes Craven’s effortless ability to blend comedy and horror – it just worked perfectly. And a special shout out to my good friend Patrick Lussier (who I’m doing a film with myself, shortly) whose proficient editing work is evident right throughout that whole series. Did I mention yet that Henry Winkler had the single best star cameo in any movie that decade? Well, just did.

Anyway, I look forward to another “Scream” movie – so long as it’s, well, more “Scream” and less “Scream 3″; and considering Kevin Williamson’s back to write the thing (as opposed to Ehren Kruger who wrote the lousy “Scream 3″), I think there’s a good chance that’s what we’ll get. And though I doubt she’ll be on screen for long (yeah, you know what I’m getting at) good to see they could twist Neve Campbell into reprising her role as Sidney, too. After all, there’s no “Scream” without a Sidney. And, of course, great that Craven’s returned to direct. At the very least, “Scream 4″ – which also sees David Arquette and Courteney Cox reprising their roles from the first three films – will be a nice little reunion movie.

They’re shooting “Scream 4″ over in Michigan. And there’s been no major dramas – but there have been some scheduling switcheroos and filming delays, thus eliminating a couple of attached players from taking part. We found out Lake Bell had been forced to drop out of the film last week, and now, there’s word that Lauren Graham has also been forced to exit. Bell was set to play the local copper, someone who went to school with Sidney, whilst Graham was set to play the heroine’s (Emma Roberts) mother.

The trades reported today that they’ve found a replacement for Bell – Marley Shelton of “Planet Terror” and “Sin City” fame will be donning the Woodsboro Police badge.

It’s also been reported that Adam Brody (great guy; spent some time with him at a charity event in San Diego a couple of years back), best known for his role as Seth on the now-defunct series “The OC”, will play a copper too, one just out of the Academy – who watches too many “C.S.I” type shows. Nice casting.

Also onboard, Erik Knudsen (TVs “Jericho”) will “have a role similar to the one played by Jamie Kennedy in the first two installments, a character who is familiar with horror movie conventions and a provider of comic relief”, says Heat Vision.

The trio join Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, Nico Tortorella and whoever-has-been-chosen-to-replace-Lauren-Graham in the 2011 release.
