Zap2It Writer Defends Report, Sushi

There have been many accusations flying around in the face of the Writer Rumors, going as so far to attack the original reporter, Zap2It‘s Carina MacKenzie and even accusing Kevin Williamson as being the leakster. IMDB user lostrockofficefnl took the initiative and contacted MacKenzie. Here is our breakdown of the conversation.

MacKenzie first addressed concerns over the news’ validity: “Of course, I can’t reveal who our sources are, but I can say that they are impeccable and have been involved with the project from Day 1. Zap2it takes accurate reporting very seriously and we double check our sources diligently. We NEVER report original stories if we can’t stand by them 100%. Ehren Kruger has already completed one draft of the script (which is now in production) and has been commissioned for more rewrites. Kevin Williamson is off the project.”

Some have floated the strange notion that Williamson himself was the source, since he tweeted that the two had sushi together. But MacKenzie quashes that: “No, Kevin and I had sushi to talk Vampire Diaries.”

When pressed on the reasons Williamson left: “I can’t really say more! I don’t know the reasons” she says. “I can say that I told someone involved with the film that I was very excited to see it – I’ve been a fan since the first movie – and the person said, “Get un-excited.” Doesn’t sound good to me.”

According to MacKenzie, “I do know 100% that Scream 5 and 6 will not be happening.”

Williamson has so far remained silent on the matter, raising further worries. But when asked if the Scream scribe has commented at any stage? “He said he wishes them well.”

  7. Sushi needs no defending! It’s delicious! Especially on half-priced wine nights.

  9. It’s still ONE source being spread all over the internet and causing all of this negativity. I think we should all remain optimistic until we have a clearer picture of what’s going on.

  11. really denny, shock till you drop got a phone call from their own source from the movie, do your research and maybe it is you who will get a clearer picture

  12. I know some are refuting this, but it seems like a GREAT ploy to distract us from spoilers. Maybe they lead us along to THINK Kev’s not part of it, only to surprise us? Wishful thinking, I suppose.

  17. It’s probably a decoy they came up with to distract us since people are constantly hovering around Ann Arbor.

    I’ve never seen such insanity regarding a filming process before. Although, I’d expect the same kind of hoopla surrounding Nolan’s Batman 3.

  23. It’s so stupid that I can’t believe it, but I’m pretty scared.
    I can’t understand why they’re doing another script, when it was Williamson’s the one that got Courtney, David, Neve and Creven back. If they “fired” Williamson, I hope they’ll leave too.

    It’s so dumb that maybe it’s all a viral campaign. A cruel one, because it plays with someone in a negative way (Kruger).

  25. GhostFan, ShockTillYouDrop confirmed the obvious. We know Kruger’s working on it. That isn’t what I was referring to. Zap2It is the one saying they know all of these script issues have arisen, people are leaving due to the script, implying Kruger’s butchering the script, saying Hayden’s upset, etc.

    Thus, ONE source is spreading the negativity everywhere. Do your research and maybe you’ll see that minor revisions are not indicative of the dire circumstances news outlets have been reporting which are, in fact, exaggerations from ONE source.

    I said it was one source being spread all over the internet and causing the negativity and it is. Kruger’s involvement does not a bad film make and the fan assumption that Kruger=crap movie is baseless (and typically assumed due to Scream 3 or Transformers 2 or whatever). As are many of the implications of the Zap2It article that is being re-reported everywhere.

  27. I absolutely believe it. I’ve been following her on Twitter and saw the back and forth discussions with her and the IMDB user. Something is definitley fishy, and there is more reason to believe her reports than anything else. It’s all there. She was also promised an OFFICIAL STATEMENT from the production yesterday, and never got one as far as I know.

    However, Marielle Jaffe, who is appearing in the movie, wrote on her FACEBOOK that things are great. Someone asked her about the rumors and she responded by saying every film has it’s trials and tribulations and went on to say that Wes ia genius, Kevin is an amazing writer(but didn’t say he was on or off the project), and that people have nothing to worry about. True, or just saving face?.
