Neve Campbell Back for Scream 4
09.25.09 by REELZ
Two months ago, David Arquette confirmed that he and wife Courtney Cox were returning for a fourth installment of the Scream franchise. There was doubt, however, as to whether Neve Campbell and Wes Craven would return. In all three previous movies, Campbell starred as the protagonist, Sidney, and Craven was behind the camera.
Well, now it appears that one of those two question marks is gone. Variety says that Campbell has agreed to return for Scream 4.
According to producer Bob Weinstein, Scream 4 will be the first in a new trilogy, although it was not specified whether the cast members had already agreed to return for the fifth and sixth installments. Production will begin sometime next spring. Weinstein also said that Scream is just one of the "revamp" projects he's at work on.
I'm going back to doing what I do best.... I'm heading back to my franchise films. These films are our strength, and we are committed to doing them in style.... There is no question that financing is readily available to produce and market these films.
Upcoming Weinstein productions include Spy Kids 4, Halloween III, and remakes of Children of the Corn, Short Circuit, and An American Werewolf in London. He also mentioned he is taking a greater interest in 3-D releases.
