It's been nearly a decade now since the Scream Movies have graced the big screen.
Die-hard Scream fans have been crying out for a further instalment for years, and now, what was only ever intended to be a trilogy is most definitely getting a fourth instalment which is even intended to kick off a brand new trilogy!
All the big players are back....Wes Craven in the directing chair, Kevin Williamson writing the script, Courtney Cox and David Arquette returning to the roles of Gale Weathers and Deputy Dewey, and after much convincing after she stated several times she wouldn't be returning to the role....Neve Campbell reprises her role as Sydney Prescott.
The movie will also be introducing a lot of new characters which will take the story on through to the next two sequels (something’s telling me that one or two of the main scream veterans will get it this time!).
The original Scream movie revitalised the slasher film genre in the late 1990's spawning two sequels of its own, and making it one of the best performing horror trilogy’s at the box office of all time. It also inspired the very successful spoof movies..Scary Movie series.
The fourth instalment will no doubt get scream fans running to the box office on its opening weekend and I personally can't wait for this one. Will this instalment also catch a new generation of movie gowers? I think it shows promise!
New Decade! New Rules! After ten years of trying to put her life back together from the tragic events that happened in Woodsborough, Windsor college and then Hollywood, Sidney Prescott, who is now a writer is visited by the ghostface killer again, bringing together all who survived the attacks along with her, including Gale Weathers and Deputy Dewey Riley. With all the remakes and reboots Hollywood is spitting out these days, is some crazed movie fan trying to remake what happened ten years ago?
Many rumours have been circulating around this movie, especially with the nature of the film working on audiences been captivated by 'the guess who the killer is' scenario. But most recent rumours are surrounding Mathew Lillard who played Stu in the original Scream movie. Stu was the other ghostface killer with Billy Loomis in the first outing. Mathew Lillard has been spotted dining with Neve Campbell (Sydney) close to the film set. Now coincidence? Maybe! Scream fans grabbing their 'youhaas' with excitement? DEFINATELY! Although Mathew Lillard’s character seemingly died in the original, there’s always a way to bring a much loved character back into these sort of movies...watch this space!
***UPDATE 21/08/2010*** Mathew Lillard has posted on his Twitter account that these rumours are false and that he was just visiting friends on set... 'i swear on my eye balls' he says! Yeah right Matt, like you would tell us at this point if you were!
More gossip includes will they stick with someone famous or big in the story being the opening dramatic kill? And get your tissues boy's and girls, as many of the rumours consist of Sydney getting it first! Neve Campbell has only been spotted on set a few times, and every time being in the same outfit. Her character being the killer as poor Sydney has finally snapped is far too predictable, will they shock fans by giving her last scary phone call? I'm saying very possible as she was very reluctant to return to the role in the first place, and the fact that they really want a new cast to carry on the franchise. The signs are there!
And finally, the fourth instalment will not only focus primarily on the old Scream veterans but also mainly on the new characters that will see it through a further two sequels. The cast includes Adam Brody, Rory Culkin, Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettier and Anthony Anderson.
The Movie has a release date set for 15th April 2011!
