Why isn’t it APRIL now!?



‘Scream’ is the best horror series known to MAN

Scream 4 is filming. Horror fans around the world, rejoice!

OK…so maybe I’m overhyping this messiah to the genre film a little too much, but c’mon! The Cox-Arquettes are in, as is Neve Campbell. Wes Craven is back in action, with a screenplay from original writer Kevin Williamson. That’s at least a good start, right?

The fourth Scream film is also boasting a fresh, young cast including Hayden Panetitereirereree (Save the Cheerleader!), Rory Culkin, and Emma Roberts. Plus, the movie will have appearances by Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin (Sook-eh!), and Alison Brie.

EW posted this First Look at Scream 4:

One of my biggest fears about this movie is that they are going to “Laurie Strode” Sidney, Gail, and/or Dewey. I can accept that one of them is bound to die (tear, sadface), but if all three bite it, I’m not so sure how I’ll be able to LIVEEEE.  And in this photo, Gail looks like she’s in trouble!

My mind is already reeling! Maybe Sid has gone crazy and is the killer! Maybe a copycat wants to “reboot the series”! Maybe Deputy Dewey is trying to salvage Gail’s slightly weathered (HA! Get it?) career?

The possibilities are endless. April 15th, 2011 can’t come quickly enough.

Two years ago, the Weinsteins announced a reboot of the Scream franchise – a fourth movie that would possibly kick off a brand new trilogy. I, a diehard Scream fan was against it. Over the course of time, new light has been shed on the project, making me slighly more optimistic about the series’ future.

Everyone is back! Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox-Arquette, and David Arquette have all agreed to reprise their roles. This is good news! The downside to this? One of these three characters will probably be killed off – most likely Sidney Prescott – and that will be mostly devastating.

Wes Craven is set to direct! The man’s a horror icon! He was there from the beginning, and to have him give the OK on Scre4m definitely eases some anxieties. And to add…

…Kevin Williamson wrote the fourth film. Williamson took a break on Scream 3, handing writing duties over to Ehren Kruger (who didn’t really do the series justice). Having Williamson and Craven back is some sweet, sweet icing on one of my favorite cakes.

At this time, I fear there is nothing else for me to do but get a running start and jump on this speeding train. The fanboy inside me can now rest knowing that Craven and Williamson won’t throw the series off a cliff to its death.

Scre4m starts filming this summer in Michigan. For a kickass interview with Wes Craven, head over here.

Please God, don’t let it be true

Apparently, I was oblivious until someone at Vevmo started a thread about it, but the Weinsteins are gung-ho about re-booting the Scream franchise….except there’s no word on who will come back to the series. Can this be done without the creative genious duo of Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson. I mean…we all saw how THREE turned out. Why then would we venture out to further destroy and alienate the story and its fans?

And let’s not even talk about the money it’ll take to get all 3 of the major players: Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette.  And honestly…if one of their characters would :::gasp::: be brutally murdered in a cheap, rushed, thrown together HACK of a sequel….a part of me would DIE inside. Just DIE.

So there aren’t any confirmed details…but a green light has been given. If it sees the light of day, I’ll totally be there opening night…I would just prefer not to..

And now for the Top however-many-reasons-I-can-come-up-with-at-the-top-of-my-head Reasons Why Scre4m should NOT be made:

1. Sidney’s story is told.  Her mother’s indiscretions have been settled. Paid for. Kaput. Donezo. They can no longer base…no…JUSTIFY…a third sequel based around Sidney’s story or mother.

2. Loomis and his mom are dead, and so is Roman. Everyone involved in that entire “bloodbath that has rocked the nation” are a bunch of GONERS. Can Sid possibly have MORE people that hate / want her dead? Let’s keep a sense of realism to this, folks!

3. A direct-to-dvd sequel will not do it justice, and it will debase the series to the likes of Wrong Turn 2, Cruel Intentions 2 (and 3, ugh), and any other series that was raped for its title alone. Scream is too important in the genre of horror/slasher to be treated with such disrespect.

4. …Because it simply wouldn’t be right without Neve, Courtney and David. However, like I said, if one of their characters dies, so will I. Hypothetically, metaphorically, and in any other way that is fake and exaggerated. See also: Point 1.

4. We’re doing a Top 4. Because that’s all I got right now, yo’.

And this probably won’t be the last of me lamenting about the possible Scre4m movie…let’s hope those Weinstein bastards come to their senses.
