Scream 4 – Poster and Wes Craven talks about the plot

Posted by LiveFor on April 29, 2010

Popwatch had the poster and a chat with director Wes Craven.

There have been 10 years of no Ghostface, but there has been the movie-within-a-movie Stab. We have fun with the idea of endless sequels, or “sequelitis” as Kevin calls it in the script. Sid goes through these three horrendous things, and Stab was based on those horrible things. And then they’ve been taken by a studio and run into the ground in a series of sequels. She has been off by herself and living her own life, and she’s even written a book that has gotten a lot of critical acclaim. She’s kind of put her life back together in the course of these 10 years. But, certainly, there would be no Scream without Ghostface, so she has to confront him again, but now as a woman who has really come out the darkness of her past.

Scream 4 – Neve Campbell will scream again

Posted by LiveFor on September 25, 2009

neve_campbellBob Weinstein has confirmed that Neve Campbell has signed to return as Sidney Prescott for Scream 4 for Dimension Films. She is accompanied by Courteney Cox and David Arquette who have already signed on.

According to Variety, Scream 4 will start production in April or May as the first of a new trilogy, and the company is talking to Wes Craven to direct, Weinstein reports.

I am still not sure whether a new Scream film is needed or what it has to say about the current crop of horror films.

Could Wes Craven be directing Scream 4?

Posted by LiveFor on June 8, 2009

According to Wes Craven Scream 4 is definitely going ahead plus both Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette, are almost signed and will be returning to the film, but according Craven they’re the only ones who are returning.

“I’ve been told, and I don’t think they’ll mind if I say this, the deals on David Arquette and Courteney are virtually set. I believe everybody else will be new.”

The always excellent Filmstalker found the news and it isn’t just confirmation of the film being made. It is possible that Craven himself may be directing it.

“I had a brief conversation with Kevin [Williamson], I know that Kevin is writing. What I’ve said to Bob is I’m not closed to it, I’m not open to it, I’ll be perfectly happy to read a script and tell him what I think. That’s where it’s at and I’m not expecting a script until August. I don’t know what the premise is or

“Bob Weinstein (The Weinstein Company co-chairman) has talked to me, he’s interested in me directing it.”

Kevin Williamson also confirmed to Craven that it’s going to be a trilogy:

“I don’t think it’s a reboot and Kevin, when he talked to me, said, ‘Remember, it’s not just Scream 4, it’s Scream 5 and 6. So I guess he has a trilogy in mind.”

I looks as if the Arquette’s are the only cast members returning, but the fact Wes Craven could be directing the new one makes me a bit more interested in the film.

What do you think of the news? Do you want to see a new Scream film directed by Wes Craven? What do you think the story will be?

Wes Craven talks about remakes, sequels to remakes, and sequels to sequels of remakes

Posted by LiveFor on March 2, 2009

In the coming year, Midnight Entertainment – Wes Craven’s production company – is going to be busy. This month will see the release of The Last House on the Left, the second remake from the early days of his career that he produced. The success of this film will determine the fate of four other projects brewing at Midnight.

“We’re going to be exploring new avenues,” Craven told STYD over the weekend. “The Hills Have Eyes 3, we have a concept for which is really fun. A possible sequel to The Last House on the Left, then The People Under the Stairs and Shocker. That’s it for the films we somewhat own. The first two I own with one other guy. People and Shocker Universal owns. But if I say, ‘No, don’t make it’ they can’t make it.”

Out of this quartet, the third chapter in the Hills franchise – kicked off by Alex Aja in 2006 – is the closest to coming to fruition. Craven says he’s currently talking to another European filmmaker who he believes has the right skills to bring the next installment of the rad-mutated miners misadventures to the big screen.

“Fox Atomic has a first look deal and they have passed on it,” Craven reveals. “The reason is because of the deal. They have the right of first refusal but if someone else wants to do it, Fox has the right to come in and match that deal. For them, it’s smarter to have us go find someone that will say yes, then come in see if they can top it.”

As for Shocker, Craven confesses the original was not created on the technical level he reached for. Special effects hiccups prevented him from fulfilling his vision. A redo, “could be extraordinary if you have the special effects and really open it up. The possibilities are endless.”

The Random – The Losers, Dead Spy Running, Howl, Old Timers, Little Fockers, Shocker, The People Under the Stairs

Posted by LiveFor on February 20, 2009

According to Variety, “Watchmen” and “Grey’s Anatomy” actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan has signed on to topline the adaptation of the Vertigo comic, The Losers. The James Vanderbilt-scripted project is being financed by Dark Castle Entertainment with Dark Castle’s Joel Silver, Weed Road’s Akiva Goldsman and Kerry Foster producing. The Losers regroup in the interest of revenge and the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list and to conduct covert operations against the CIA and its interests. Morgan would play Clay, the group’s leader, whose signature look favors black suits without ties. Morgan is also shooting the Hammer Films thriller The Resident with Hilary Swank around the same time so schedules are currently being worked out.

“Traffic” scribe Stephen Gaghan will pen the adaptation of Jon Stock’s espionage novel Dead Spy Running for Warner Bros. Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter. The story is the first in a trilogy and aims to reinvent the spy genre by telling the origin story of a newly trained spy which mixes Robert Ludlum’s grittiness with John Le Carre’s wit. McG is attached to direct the project which kicks off with the protagonist running the London Marathon, where a fellow racer is strapped with explosives. The scenario leads to a globe-trotting adventure to clear the name of the man’s father.

Werc Werk Works is set to produce and fully finance Howl, taking over some of the reigns of the Allen Ginsberg-themed project from Telling Pictures reports Variety. “Howl” centers on the obscenity trial over Ginsberg’s famed poem, as well as an animated reimagining of the poem itself. James Franco, David Strathairn, Alan Alda, Jeff Daniels, Mary-Louise Parker and Paul Rudd star in the project which begins shooting March 16th in New York City.

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment has picked up playwright Noah Haidle’s spec script Old Timers says the trades. The script follows two sixtysomething cons who have one final night to do everything they’ve wanted and reunite their gang before one of them meets his demise.

John Hamburg has come aboard to rewrite Larry Stuckey’s screenplay for Little Fockers, the third film in the “Meet the Parents” comedy series reports Risky Biz Blog.

Wes Craven spoke to JoBlo AITH about some more of his films being remade – “We’re actually talking about remaking THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS. Possibly SHOCKER also. So these ones that we’ve been remaking, especially THE HILLS HAVE EYES and THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, I own with the producer. Two different producers and both close friends. Peter Locke with The Hills Have Eyes and Sean Cunningham with Last House. So we now own them after thirty years we got them back. It’s funny because when we made those deals we thought, we’ll never be alive in thirty years, we were all like [mimicking smoking pot]… but it turns out we’re still alive. So were able to remake those. And People Under the Stairs and Shocker, although we don’t own them, Universal owns them but we have rights with Universal and myself, and the producer who is Shep Gordon to say yes or no. So if we all say yes we can do it. Universal can’t go off and make them with somebody else. So we’re talking about doing that now.”

Posted by LiveFor on January 9, 2009

Masters of horror Wes Craven and Sean Cunningham revisit their landmark film that launched Craven’s directing career and influenced decades of horror films to follow: The Last House on the Left.

The night she arrives at the remote Collingwood lakehouse, Mari (Sara Paxton) and her friend are kidnapped by a prison escapee and his crew. Terrified and left for dead, Mari’s only hope is to make it back to parents John and Emma (Tony Goldwyn and Monica Potter). Unfortunately, her attackers unknowingly seek shelter at the one place she could be safe. And when her family learns the horrifying story, they will make three strangers curse the day they came to The Last House on the Left.
