Kevin Williamson Talks Scream 4 Influences and the Fate of Neve Campbell
11.12.09 by Ryan
Kevin Williamson is still finishing his script for Scream 4, but he told The NYPost what influences he is using for the sequel.
I've [included] manga comics, Asian ghost girl movies, there's some PG-13 horror movies in there, vampire movies, M. Night Shyamalan movies and torture porn movies, even though they've come and gone.
Scream 4 will see the return of Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette as the trilogy's main survivors. Yet, when asked if Campbell, who was the last to confirm she'd return, will survive yet again through the next trilogy of Scream movies Williamson is planning, he replied, "I can't promise anything."
However, he did say to expect laughs and, more importantly, scares.
You have to be careful because Scary Movie spoofed these films, so one of the things I'm excited about with Scream 4 is that, while we do lampoon and send up the genre, [we] make it incredibly scary. That's first and foremost.
