Like Charlie's Angels, but dangerous!
Even though the The Expendables 2 was a bit redundant and perhaps too self-aware at times, it was still an entertaining action movie with all-star cast appeal. A sequel is already in development, with Wesley Snipes, Nicolas Cage, Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood all being courted to join the cast. Noticeably absent from that list are the names of any female action movie stars. We say, if the gimmick of the franchise is surprising new cast additions, why not push it further than bringing in Indy by bringing in Ripley or The Bride.
Or, better yet, how about a stand-alone movie with an all-female cast of female action heroes from yesterday and today? Just think of the possibilities!
Imagine a revenge movie written and directed by Quentin Tarantino about an all-female super-spy team run by Sigourney Weaver, with members that include: Uma Thurman as the knife expert; Gina Carano as the pugilist/demolitions expert; Jada Pinkett Smith as the animal/gun expert; Kate Beckinsale as the poison expert/seductress; Chloë Moretz as the trainee (Fox Force Five!). But, enough about our fantasy she-woman action movie. We want to know what you think: Which female action movie stars of yesterday and today do you think could make the line-up in an all-female Expendables-style movie?

In Scream 4, fans aren't just getting the surviving cast members of the original trilogy — Neve Campbell, Courteny Cox, and David Arquette — but a whole new cast of newcomers headlined by Hayden Panettiere and Emma Roberts. While attending the red carpet premiere of the highly-anticipated sequel, Panettiere admitted to The LA Times that there was a little pressure in entering a franchise that began in 1996.
You do have to have a respect for the fact that it's something that's so established, that it's a family that's been created over the past 15 years. But [the old cast] were so nice and so welcoming and so cool about it that you didn't really feel that "Oh my God, don't mess up, you gotta come in with your stuff together."
Roberts, meanwhile, told The Huffington Post that bringing in a cast of younger actors for Scream 4 was a "smart idea" for the franchise.
Especially such great people like Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin. And all the young people are really great choices for the roles, like people that I would have imagined in the part while I was reading the script. That's gonna help bring in a younger audience. Also technology has changed so much since the original Scream. There's so much more ways to talk to people and stalk people. I think that's definitely incorporated in this new Scream.
Campbell, Cox, and Arquette were thrilled to come back and work together alongside much of the same crew as the original trilogy. The three actors, along with franchise director Wes Craven discussed what it was like to return in a behind the scenes video from Yahoo!. watch the video >> Posted 04.15.11 by Ryan

Since then, Craven has been shooting additional footage, leaving fans to feast on photos and a posters while waiting for new footage from the highly anticipated sequel.

A new theatrical poster has been released for director Wes Craven's Scream 4 (or is it SCRE4M?). Written by Scream and Scream 2 writer Kevin Williamson, with rewrites by Scream 3 writer Ehren Kruger, the latest installment in the popular horror franchise finds Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) returning to her home of Woodsboro after a book-signing tour to find that someone has resurrected the Ghostface killer and is trying to recreate the murders from the first movie, which were chronicled in the Stab movie-within-a-movie.
Also returning to Woodsboro for another go at thrills and chills are Scream alums (and real-life couple) Courteny Cox Arquette and David Arquette as Gale Weathers and Sheriff Dwight "Dewey" Riley. New additions to the cast include Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Adam Brody, and Rory Culkin. watch the trailer for Scream 4 >> Posted 02.02.11 by BrentJS
Ol' Ghostface is back and he's up to his old shenanigans in the sleepy town of Woodsboro. Neve Campbell returns as Sidney Prescott, slasher survivor, in Scream 4, the latest installment of director Wes Craven's popular horror movie franchise that began as something of a satirical analysis of the horror movie conventions that had become a cliché by the '90s. But by Scream 3, the series became a basis of a whole franchise of horror movie satires (the Scary Movie series) itself.
In the newest installment, when Sydney makes Woodsboro the last stop on her book-signing tour, Ghostface returns, killing victims in a manner consistent with the movie-within-a-movie, Stab, on the anniversary of the original Woodsboro killings. Sydney turns to her old friends, Sheriff Dwight "Dewey" Riley (David Arquette) and newswoman-turned-author Gale Weathers (Courteny Cox Arquette), who are now married (as in real life), to help her catch the killer before her cousin (Emma Roberts) and aunt (Mary McDonnell) become the masked madman's next victims.

Official promotional materials for the sequel to the decade-old Scream 3 have only been trickling out since Scream 4 wrapped principal photography in September. ET ran a series of featurettes on the movie, EW published a few pics of the cast, and a teaser trailer debuted during the Spike TV Scream Awards, but that's been about it so far. A handful of unofficial "spy pics" from the set have surfaced from time to time, but now three official still images from the movie have finally been released. Included are a look at series star Neve Campbell as a knife-wielding Sydney Prescott, a shot of new additions Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell looking very blonde and very skittish, and a still of several of the other new potential victims (Erik Knudsen, Rory Culkin, Marielle Jaffe, and Hayden Panettiere). more about Scream 4 >> Posted 11.29.10 by BrentJS

I think it has echoes to the first [film]. There’s been a whole decade of horror films that in one way or another followed a certain pattern. Like you had torture porn, [and] a ton of remakes. The first [Scream] was very much observing where horror had been for the last 10 to 20 years. And this is very much looking at where horror has been for the last 10 years. There’s always somebody trying to figure out what the rules are to keep from getting killed.
Production on Scream 4 wrapped yesterday, just in time for Entertainment Tonight to air a behind-the-scenes featurette of the upcoming sequel including interviews with director Wes Craven and actors Emma Roberts, Courtney Cox Arquette, David Arquette, and Neve Campbell.
