We don’t know much about the plot of Scream 4, but we do know what Wes Craven told us in April:
“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.” … “This is a film about the progress of, at this point, three core characters, and how all of these events have changed their lives, and how the events in their lives have been reflected in the movies around them, which they might like or might really not like at all. I think that makes it really different.”
So what is Sidney Prescott been up to in the last decade? What is she doing now? Well, she is an author, of course! And she’s returned to Woodsboro to promote her nHit the jump to see the photo from the set which reveals Sid’s book cover. See set photos from downtown Woodsboro on BeforeTheTrailer.com.

As you already know, Scream series stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette have all returned to reprise their roles in Scream 4, which is currently shooting. But who cares about those guys and gals — We have just learned that Roger L. Jackson, the voice actor who provides the creepy voice of the killer (aka Ghostface), is also set to return for the fourth film.
Production has begun on Wes Craven‘s Scream 4, and the first videos and photos have begun to appear online, including a look at Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, now a decade older and with short hair.

Last week there was news about the casting for Scream 4 that suggested Twilight‘s Ashley Greene could end up playing one of the lead roles in the sequel — a part more or less equivalent to Neve Campbell‘s in the original film. Now it looks like Emma Roberts is going to have that role. So is Greene out of the film entirely? Read More »

The first questions about Scream 4, which has taken many years to come together, revolved around which members of the cast would return. Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson, who kicked off a new wave of horror interest with the first Scream, have got Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courtney Cox all signed to return. But this is theoretically the first chapter of a new trilogy (shudder), which means we need a lot of new characters.
Enter the potential new redshirts stars: Lake Bell, Ashley Greene, Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin. Read More »

Neve Campbell tells Black Book Magazine that she is “pretty sure” that Wes Craven is back on board to direct Scream 4, which is tenatively set to begin shooting in April 2010. Craven had said previously that he wanted to wait for a script to be completed, before he decided if he would helm the next sequel, the first part of a new trilogy.
Courtney Cox and David Arquette have also committed to the fourth film, which is currently being written, concurrently with a script for a fifth film,by series screenwriter Kevin Williamson. The film will be set ten years later in Woodsboro, and is described as “an ensemble” which will introduce several new characters. Williamson has said that it will reference manga comics, Asian ghost girl movies, PG-13 horror movies, vampire films, M. Night Shyamalan movies and even torture porn.

Over the last few months, it’s been revealed that the first entry in the new Scream trilogy, aka Scream 4, is set in Sidney Prescott’s hometown roughly a decade after Scream 3. And contrary to old rumors, the first film will not be in 3D. Courtney Cox and David Arquette were signed to reprise their roles from the get-go, and following a prolonged declination, Neve Campbell signed much to the relief of writer/creator, Kevin Williamson. (He had expressed dismay on Twitter at rewriting the trilogy without her). The final puzzle piece, Wes Craven, remains in talks to direct, which is arguably the most important to its success besides the script(s).
But that still leaves doubt as to whether Williamson—who’s had renewed Dawson’s Creek-like success with the CW’s Vampire Diaries—still possesses an irreverent sensibility to update the franchise for a contemporary world of tailspin pop culture and younger, less established horror tropes. Williamson has now revealed several of his influences for the first film, and expressed the complexity of achieving the right tone…
