For those who remember Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Wes Craven has obviously been toying with the idea of a Scream 4 for many years. Now with writer Kevin Williamson back on the case after the awful script that Ehren Kruger produced for the last sequel, it seems that the movie is in the early stages of development.
But the latest news is that franchise final girl Neve Campbell is not interested! I can’t say I’m surprised after the way in which she sleepwalked through Scream 3, but now it seems the news is official. “Trying to figure out a Sid-less scenario. She won’t do it. This sucks,” says Williamson.
Perhaps it is time to move on. Sidney has completed her journey and the last moments of the third film saw her finally at peace. A new killer, a new final girl? After all, every other franchise has managed to replace their heroines, so why not Scream?
More recently, with regards to the script itself, Williamson added, “Working on S4. Have completely spooked myself. Think there’s a killer in every closet. Never sleep now. Ugh.”
