Legendary horror director Wes Craven has spoken with Total Film about the apparent troubles that occurred during filming of Scream 4.
The helmer spewed of a tweet from him which said "No longer in control of the script." When the magazine quizzed him on that he responded, "I was just stating the fact. In some ways it’s a Wes Craven film, and in way it’s not entirely, because it’s not a script I have control of. It’s ultimately controlled by what the studio wants in the script. My job is much more bringing whatever experience and expertise and creativity I can. Look, there was a bumpy period when things shifted over from Kevin (Williamson, original series creator) to Ehren (Kruger, who penned the third film). I signed up to do a script by Kevin and unfortunately that didn’t go all the way through the shooting. But it certainly is Kevin’s script and concept and ideas and themes" says Craven. He has since tweeted "Just finished the mix and watched the film. Mark my words - SCREAM4 kicks ass and will leave you wanting more."
I really hope you're right, Wes. My 16 year old self is praying for it.
