Video: Panettiere Talks Scream 4 With MTV

Hayden Panettiere talks up the direction the franchise is taking with Scream 4 while looking cute as ever, and has some nice things to say about her director and fellow cast.

With filming of the fourth chapter in the “Scream” franchise under way in Michigan, fans are hard-pressed to find out new details about the fourth film’s notoriously mysterious plotline. However, when MTV News recently caught up with Hayden Panettiere, she said she’s confident the filmmakers are doing the previous movies justice and that the process so far has been a blast.

“I think it’s just perfect timing, the amount of time that has passed since the last one came out,” the former “Heroes” star told MTV News. “It’s a perfect setup, with all of these films … the [fictional] ‘Stab’ [movies] and all the things like that. I think with all of the ‘Scream’ [films], the idea is to throw the audience for a loop every time.”

Panettiere acknowledged that for savvy audiences, the surprise factor is an even bigger challenge this time around.

“For an audience that is so well-versed in ‘Scream’ [films] and in what happens and who becomes the killer, blah, blah, blah, it’s trickier to throw them a curveball,” she said. “I think they’ve done a really cool job with the script. We’ve had a blast on it.”

Panettiere also heaped praise on her castmates and director Wes Craven. “Wes Craven is, he not only is the nicest human being, but he’s a brilliant director. And it’s all the original cast as well: Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox and David Arquette. We’ve got an incredible new cast that’s come in, and we have a pretty good team.” The spunky actress said she couldn’t reveal too much about her character Kirby, only that she’s “edgy, sassy and smart. She’s a very strong character.”

  3. Is it just me or does Hayden look kind of like Danielle Harris (Halloween Scream Queen)

  5. Lupe! I was just thinking that! She does look like Danielle Harris! haha. But anyways, I’m happy they actually got to cut her hair, because I was kind of getting bored with her (not in a bad way, I like her!) in roles that made her look like she was the same character. She either played a cheerleader, or just a character that looked like Hayden. So, imagine when I heard they had her in the cast..I was like, WTF!? She might ruin this movie! but now that we see her with short hair..it gives me a relief that she’ll look like she’ll portray a total different character than what we’re used to! Woo hoo!! :)

  7. She is right! Wes is truly the greatest horror director of our time. Who else has put out such a solid body of horror films in the last 40 years? I will see anything he does and when it’s all said and done, know that scream 4 will kill. Pumped for My soul to take!!!! And anyone who hasn’t seen it should check out Paris, je t’aime, his short was awesome!!! Above all, it shows that he has still got it!!!

  9. I think the reason she had her hair cut is for character purposes. She’s done Heros for so long with long hair,i’m sure she doesn’t want people. To go ‘What’s Claire doing back in high school’, or ‘oh no problem if she gets hurt she’ll just heal instantly’.
