Screenwriter Talks ‘Scream 4’

In a recent interview ‘Scream 4’ writer Kevin Williamson, who is contracted for ‘Scream 4’ and ‘Scream 5’ spoke about his current project saying, “What I have always liked about this movie versus the other horror films is that I feel like there are characters. In other horror movies, you remember Michael Meyers and you remember Jason. In our film, I think you remember Sydney Prescott because Sydney Prescott’s the victim and she has lasted for all three of these movies. The fun of the film is that it’s Sydney Prescott. That’s the difference and you care about her. I want to write a story where you actually care about our characters and it’s a plot that you watch them walk through. It’s not all about the next kill. It’s not all about slice and dice. I was watching Saw VI on pay per view the other night and I was like, ‘This is really just going from one kill to the next, to the next.’ It’s fun, but I want to tell a story.”

He was also asked if he would consider killing off Sydney Prescott in the first ten minutes of the film. Williamson simply said “The story has to start somewhere.”
