Back on January 12th we broke the news exclusively here on Bloody-Disgusting that Kevin Williamson was returning to writer Scream 4 for Dimension Films and that Wes Craven “may or maybe not ” return to direct the film. This evening we had the chance to speak to Craven, who has some very interesting stuff to say about the long-gestured project.
After a special screening of Rogue Pictures/Relativity Media’s The Last House on the Left remake (which was pretty great), Bloody-Disgusting was lucky enough to chat one-on-one with the legendary Wes Craven about the remake, along with a bunch of other projects.
Craven confirms our exclusive news that the Wesinteins are moving forward on a Scream 4, while also telling us what it would take to get him back in the director’s chair.
“It would take it being really as good a script as the first one was,” explaining that he should also be compensated for his work on the franchise, “and the pay day reflects what I’ve done for that company and what Ive gone through on Cursed (laughs).”
When asked if he is involved at all in the new film’s tory, he explained, “I don’t know his ideas at all. But they have made a deal with Kevin [Williamson] to write.”
In our exclusive story, we reported that Williamson’s script will be a younger version of the SCREAM movies and that offers were made to David Arquette, Courtney Cox Arquette and Neve Campbell to play cameos.
