Still Screaming: The Ultimate Scary Movie Documentary has already been pre-praised for its sheer amount of trilogy cast and crew assembled. In a new interview with Scream Franchise Examiner, writer/director Ryan Turek reveals a candid regret about the one key creator who won’t be seen in the doco.
“I will definitively say that Kevin Williamson is absent from the project, but that’s not for lack of trying on our part. I personally tried a number of angles – because I know a few people close to his camp – but I was frustratingly hit with a “No, thank you” at every turn. Some would tell me he was too busy on Vampire Diaries, others would say that he’s simply not interested in revisiting that chapter in his life right now”
The voice of a generation will be missed. The rest of the interview reveals more insider anecdotes from Turek, including the ironic tidbit that Scream 3 scribe Ehren Kruger spilled the extensive beans on the maligned chapter’s scrapped ideas.
