‘Scream 4’ Eyes 2010 Production Start with Neve Campbell Set to Return

Peter Bart at Variety is reporting Scream IV will start production in April or May 2010 as the first film in a new trilogy and Dimension is in talks with Scream 1, 2 and 3 helmer Wes Craven to return for the new franchise. On top of that he reports Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette will star.

The news comes as part of a piece announcing a new slate of films Dimension is putting into production. Along with Scream IV there’s word Robert Rodriguez is writing a Spy Kids IV which he apparently will direct (where will he find the time) and will start shooting in March 2010 according to Dimension head Bob Weinstein.

Along with those two films there’s also the previously announced Halloween 3-D and a remake of Children of the Corn. Weinstein is heading back to the franchise mold with plans to also shoot sequels to Hellraiser and Scanners in 3D as well as remakes of Short Circuit and American Warewolf in London.

Weinstein told Variety “there is no question that financing is readily available to produce and market these films.”
