Scream 4: 81 Minutes Down, More To Go (Updated)

Team Scream have another month of shooting left but word comes today that “as of MONDAY August 23rd, 81 minutes of film completed”, relayed by Mr. Fun World, R.J. Torbert. So they would have been assembling a Scream 4 rough cut as they went along, but keep in mind movies are very seldom shot in scene-order so this would not equate to the first 81 minutes of the film, but 81 minutes of various scenes.

Doing the general math, Scream 4 has been shooting for about 2 months – that’s about 40 minutes per month. At the most, we could end up with a 2 hour film here. That would fit in nicely with parts 1-3, which ran 111 minutes, 120 minutes and 116 minutes respectively – commonly seen as “extended length” as far as slasher films are expected to go, which we can attribute to the dramatic ensemble nature of the series.

Playing devil’s advocate, the ratio holds little water – the final month may be comprised of more difficult, laborious shots that yield a lesser amount of cut-together film at the end of the process. Not to mention the general snipping involved to deliver a refined final cut.

Update – The Hollywood Reporter states the Script is 140 pages long.

  15. @Ness They had to film Gale’s scenes because Courteney had to get back to L.A. to film Cougar Town.

    I hope the movie is as long as the others. It’s one of the factors that made it special. It was more epic. I hope it’s not too quick just because of modern audiences.

  17. I came to the same conclusion as the one in the header, about how it’s possible 40 minutes per month have been shot, though that might not be the case at all. My guess is it will be under two hours, unfortunately, though it still might be great and with a good pacing. It just can’t be any shorter than the original, or it will feel rushed. Infact, I found the original to be a bit short, despite it being longer than most movies of the same genre.

    Still very excited though!!!

  19. My casting company told me the move wraps shooting in Mid-September. At least that’s whats scheduled. Usually movies tend to run a few days behind schedule so this should wrap around the 20th of September.

    Yes, Courtney Cox’s scenes were all done from Late June to Late July. I was on the set on her final day. Her camera time in the movie is similar to how it was in the first Scream. She will have several prominent scenes but her role won’t be as big as it was in Scream 3,. The same thing with Neve Campbell…her role will be about the same as it was in Scream 3 which really was not a lot of screen time.

    Remember the new movie also has to focus on the new cast members, so the originals have to make some room for them.
