Thus far we’ve seen photos from the Michigan set of Scream 4 of franchise newcomers Hayden Panettiere & Emma Roberts as well as main protagonist star Neve Campbell. Today we get to see photos of Scream alums Courteney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette on set along with other newcomers Adam Brody, Marley Shelton and Anthony Anderson hard at work on the upcoming sequel film … behold:
The major stars of the original Scream trilogy have reunited, along with director Wes Craven, to film the fourth movie in the series. Real life husband and wife Courteney Cox and David Arquette were spotted on set yesterday along with Neve Campbell and cast newcomers Adam Brody, Marley Shelton and Anthony Anderson. Julia Roberts’ niece, Emma, Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin are also set to appear in the film. The first three Scream movies were smash hits, revitalising the slasher film genre in the mid 1990s and spawning a slew of imitators. The original was one of the highest grossing films of the year when it was released in 1996 and has taken in an impressive £114million worldwide. The movies were inspired by the Halloween film series and the Gainseville Ripper murders of 1990. In Scream 4, Cox revives her role of intrepid reporter Gale Weathers, Arquette plays her on screen love, cop Dewey Riley again and Campbell reprises the part of Sidney Prescott, the girl terrorised by a serial killer in a mask. Scream was originally intended as a trilogy, but after ten years producer Bob Weinstein decided it was time for another movie. It is intended to be a ‘reboot’ of the series and the first of a new trilogy … The latest instalment is set in real time, ten years after the last, and centers around Sidney Prescott, who has finally put herself back together following the horrors of her past, before she is visited once again by the Ghostface killer. The movie promises the same tongue-in-cheek approach as the past three and Wes Craven raved: ‘Kevin [Williamson] is right on game with his new script – the characters and story crackle with energy and originality – to say nothing of some of the most hair-raising scares I’ve seen in a script since….well, since the original Scream series.’ Filming started June 28th and release is scheduled for April 2011.
OMG, I’ve been loving all of the photos from the Michigan set of Scream 4 but these have to be my faves. It is so great seeing the gang all together … it’s also cool to see the new characters as well. I’ve missed seeing Adam Brody in, well, anything good so he is a sight for sore eyes. I have no doubt that this new Scream film will be good … I just know it’s gonna rule! The first 3 films are among my fave scary films of all time and I am very much looking forward to adding #4 to that list. Isn’t it great to see the gang together again?
