In an interview by the Canadian journalist named Kevin Williamson (we’ve been waiting for years to see him matched up with a Scream person, alas no forth wall broken in the piece) Emma Roberts gives her take on the rewrite fiasco of last year.
Rumours last year suggested more than just teenagers were being eviscerated on the set of Scream 4. According to online reports, much of the script was being ripped up and revised as filming went along.
Usually that signals trouble ahead, but Emma Roberts, who joins the franchise as Neve Campbell’s cousin in the sequel, says fans of Ghostface needn’t be concerned.
“There were a lot of rewrites, but I think just to keep it fresh because new ideas kept coming. And seeing everyone together when you have such a big cast — it changes things when you get everyone in the room. There were changes, but they were all for the best and all positive changes.”
More harrowing for the 19-year-old actress? Having to sit through the previous three Scream instalments.
“I watched all of them before I started the movie and I was terrified. So this one, I saw the trailer and I was scared. I’m very curious to see it done because the trailer freaked me out and I was there. I can’t imagine what the movie will be like.”
We’ll find out soon enough: The Wes Craven-directed sequel is scheduled to open in April.
The actress is indeed correct about news ideas always coming – as Wes Craven is right now in Michigan
