Scream Creator Kevin Williamson recently discussed ‘Scream 4’.
On the progress of the script he said, “I’m writing it. I’ve been hired to write it. Courteney [Cox] and David are returning, but Courteney’s show (Cougar Town) got picked up. And so we won’t get to film until the next hiatus, which is good for me. So I can actually have fun writing it. I’m half way through it.”
On Neve Campbell’s participation he said, “You know what, I still go to sleep each night thinking maybe that will change. But as of now, no, she’s not going to be in it.”
On Wes Craven returning he said, “Wes is a director who wants to read the script before he commits. And I think that’s kind of where it sits right now. But I believe that with Courteney and David [Arquette] and me and the gang all back together again… Just from an emotional standpoint I don’t see how he can pass it up, because I just think it would be too much fun for him. Because nothing has been more fun than making those movies. It’s a family, and I think we agree that we can’t go back and have a family without Dad at the head of the table. So I have a feeling that we’re going to make him go. Between me, Courteney and David, we’re gonna make him do it. “
As far as story line, he said that it picks up 10 years later, but wouldn’t give any more details.
