Scream 4

It’s official! David Arquette and Courtney Cox have signed on to reunite with the Ghostface killer.

“We are going to be doing Scream 4,” Arquette just told me from New York City, where he’s hanging out in plastic box over Madison Square Garden for Feeding America “Kevin Williamson is writing the script at this moment, and hopefully Wes Craven is going to direct.”
In the original horror trilogy, Arquette played Deputy Dewey Riley with Cox as a tabloid television reporter Gale Weathers…
Rumors began several months ago that the two were in talks for the fourth installment.
“I fell in love with my wife on Scream, so the opportunity to bring [Dewey] back to life and for my wife to play that really bitchy character again, it’s just going to be really fun,” Arquette said. “It’s just great.”
While Williamson recently revealed that Neve Campbell has turned down the chance to reprise her role as Sidney Prescott, Arquette said, “I hope Neve does it. I really hope so.”
As for a new storyline, Arquette laughed: “Kevin has sort of put out the broad strokes, but I don’t think I’m at liberty to share any of that.”

Any thoughts on this guys?

    ‘Scream’ was (and is) an excellent film that manages the tricky task of balancing comedy and horror, it’s not the greatest comedy or the greatest horror – or even the greatest comedy horror – but it’s still a fun, schlocky, smart flick that continues to hold up despite knowing all the jumps and twists.

    ‘Scream 2’ for me was actually the worst in the series, aside from some effective moments, it was incredibly bland and very convoluted. I spent the movie just wanting to see more of the film ‘Stab’.

    ‘Scream 3’ is the one that jumps the shark, kind of like Wes Craven’s ‘New Nightmare’, except not as post-modern. It’s far too spoofy for its own good, and doesn’t do what Randy’s rules of a trilogy promise (which ironically should be a good thing, but, sadly isn’t). At least though this one was kind of fun, compared to its predecessor.

    The prospect of ‘Scream 4’ just seems to be generating a hum more than a buzz, it’s entirely dependent on whether Williamson has nailed a really great idea for how he’d pull it all together, and with the debatable involvment of Neve Campbell that just seems a little unlikely. But, I have no strong feelings really, if they make it I’ll watch it, but I doubt I’ll either get into an excited fervour over it nor will I – if it sucks – bemoan Wes Craven for ‘raping my youth’.

    Scream 4 could be good with a fresh writer/director combo.
    Any suggestions?

  • Owain Paciuszko 20th July 2009

    ‘Scream 4’ might be good if it was a Garth Marenghi/Dean Learner production, but I doubt Hollywood would go for that.

    Realistically I’d want someone like Dan Rosen to have a crack at it, he created two of the finest black comedies in relatively recent memory (The Last Supper and Dead Man’s Curve), so would be perfect to write and perhaps direct. Otherwise Mitchell Lichtenstein the writer/director of ‘Teeth’ would be an interesting choice.

    In a fantasy world I’d want Scream 4 to be written and directed by Charlie Kaufman.

    Mitchell Lichtenstein is a great choice Owain! I loved Teeth. Shame it didn’t make the cash it deserved on the silver screen.

    Milos Forman is a name in my head right now. Is that good?
