Williamson on Making Scream 4 Work…

ON

…with or without Sydney

Writer Kevin Williamson is getting ready to spend his Vampire Diaries hiatus with the Scream 4 family. And in an interview with If Magazine, he talks about getting Neve Campbell back on board for the sequel.

“To have [Neve Campbell as] Sydney back – well, I was always holding out hope, because the script is about Sydney, Gale [Courteney Cox] and Dewey [David Arquette]. The story for [SCREAM] Four, Five and Six – the launching pin of that was four, which is those three characters. But I found out originally when [Campbell] declined, I had to reroute it and that put all the onus on Gale and Dewey to carry the whole story, and that was me thinking fast on my toes, but luckily, we got her, I don’t have to do that, I can do it exactly the way I wanted and the story’s going to be told the way I originally conceived it. I’ve been contracted to write four and five.”

The fourth entry begins shooting this spring for an April 15, 2011 release.
