Update: Wes Craven’s assistant tells Bloody-Disgusting that she’s 99.9% sure that Wes Craven has yet to be approached for the project, contrary to reports. We’ll have official word by days end. We’re working on confirming this as we speak, but until then, iFMagazine caught up with Jamie Kennedy at the TCA’s CBS afterparty to promote his new role on CBS’s THE GHOST WHISPERER where he reported some very, very interesting news regarding Dimension Films’ Scream 4, which has become the center of the horrorverse over the past week since its surprising announcement. Read on for the story.Despite having having been killed off in the franchise, it seems as if Kennedy could still be involved once again as Randy.
“I actually had a conversation with somebody very big in the organization, and there’s a way,” he tells iF. “I don’t know what’s going to happen, but they have plans for a lot of things. You can see new faces that you wouldn’t expect and you can see old faces that you wouldn’t believe. There’s a way to bring a lot of things around.”
When asked if director Wes Craven would be involved, Kennedy confirmed that it’s “the only way they’re going to do it.”
Kennedy’s enthusiasm for the film seems to contradict the story reported by Moviehole this weekend, which claims that Neve Campbell is holding up the project. Watch for further developments soon.
