Scream Four Gets Shoot Date

Just in case you’ve been waiting on pins and needles for the grandiose wonder that is Wes Craven’s return to Scream, Scream IV (featuring terror hotties Courteney Cox and Neve Campbell), you may rest easy.

The fourth installment will start shooting this May.

And while this is good news, there’s slightly sadder news to come out of Camp Craven–he doesn’t plan to stop directing any time soon.  Dig the word:

“My goal is to die in my 90s on the set, say, ‘That’s a wrap,’ after the last shot, fall over dead and have the grips go out and raise a beer to me.”

And hopefully, at some point, you will direct good movies for a change instead of the blood soaked torture porn you’ve been clocking out for years.  But that’s not exactly fair–he’s done some good ones in there.  I know I enjoyed Shocker despite myself, and Scream and Elm Street were worthwhile.  But man, when he sucks, it’s just full on black hole suckage.

But still!  Scream Four, this May, maybe release by the end of the year?  Who knows!

First Word on Scream 4

(Courteney Cox)

If you’ve been waiting for Scream 4 breathlessly since the end credits rolled for Scream 3, well, you’ve been waiting one hell of a long time.? But your wait is about to pay off, and your downright saintly patience about to be seriously vindicated with the return of Scream in Scream 4, featuring once again Courteney Cox and Neve Campbell.

The first draft of the Scream 4 script is almost done, or so says writer Kevin Williamson.? In fact, he’s actually gone so far as to say that this time, the story will be done “the way (he) originally conceived it”.? He’s also shooting for a movie in which you “actually care about (the) characters…(on) a plot that you watch them walk through”.

Williamson even goes so far as to suggest that “it’s not all about the next kill” and “it’s not all about slice and dice”.

Wasn’t that what the first three were all about?

What’s more, Williamson actually has confirmed he’s locked in for four and five, and that they’re planning to go all the way to six with it.? Though only time will tell if they get that far.

Lest We Forget, Courteney Cox Is Still In Scream 4

Admittedly, we’ve heard a LOT about Neve Campbell and her various Scream drama that she’s brought along with her casting.  She was in, she was out, she was on the fence, now she’s in again, and they’re planning to kill her off.  Maybe. Or not.

But we do still have Courteney Cox involved…but what she had to say was definitely interesting.  Check this out:

“She shrugged off the rumor that both Dewey and Gale would be killed off in the beginning of the film, “They’re probably back living in Woodsboro,” Cox said referring to the small California town that was the setting of the first film. “I think that he’s probably still deputy, and I’ve had a lot of kids. I don’t know. I’m probably miserable, and then I’m sure a lot of murdering will happen.”"

One, last I knew, Dewey had been promoted to sheriff.  Two, it’s not exactly news to say that “a lot of murdering will happen” in a Scream installment.  Three, I don’t know what to make of any of this.  This seems like such an obvious red herring meant to throw us off.

Something’s up, folks…keep it here, and hopefully we’ll find out what.
