So Wes Craven is apparently broke, or shit out of ideas for new horror films. Hence the news of yet another Scream movie, to be released in 2011. The new Scream movie will feature all the old cast ( none of them have anything else going on) and the same old plot.
Ten years have passed, and Sidney Prescott, who has put herself back together thanks in part to her writing, is visited by the Ghostface Killer.
It feels like the end of an era of a certain type of film. There are series of films, a lot of sequels, and a lot of remakes, and part of the humor of Scream 4 is when characters comment on that. “Enough of Saw 25 and all!” [Laughs] A lot of films, directors, and studios are the butts of some of the jokes. In order to figure out what’s happening around them, the characters have to figure out where the genre of horror is. So this is a look at horror after 10 years of a lot of sequels rather than original films coming up year after year. One film is successful, and then they make 25 of them. I think it’s time for something new. I’ve done remakes of my own films, too, with The Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes, but we feel it’s time for something new and different, and that’s what this film is going to be.
Scream 4 is for teens, young adults.. and people with no taste in horror movies.
We have the official poster for Scream 4 now :
April 11th 2011
Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox Arquette
Scream 3 grossed 152 Million Dollars. Shame on every one of you responsible for it’s success.
* Scream (1996)
* Scream 2 (1997)
* Scream 3 (2000)
Nothing, but we bet Scream 4 will be in 3D when all is said in done.
An uninteresting horror franchise, that keeps chugging along on it’s last legs.
If Scream 4 is in 3D, the novelty will be there to justify some ticket sales.
