Clarification From Craven: “They’re Not Reshoots”

Entertainment Weekly again have a Scream 4 scoop to share – this time, Wes Craven comments about the nature of the film’s Additional Photography and addresses rumors the ending is being changed.

Scream 4 fans were in a tizzy when rumors of reshoots flooded the Internet this past weekend. Director Wes Craven even tweeted that production had returned to Michigan and posted a pic of Community‘s Alison Brie. (Friday Night Lights‘ Aimee Teegarden also tweeted that she was called back for more filming.) But Craven tells EW EXCLUSIVELY that it they were simply adding to two pivotal moments to the horror flick, out April 15.

“They’re not reshoots,” says Craven from the snowy set in Detroit. “We had a couple test screenings and we saw two scenes where they had moments you could add to and we just saw a spectacular opportunity. Bob [Weinstein] just said to me basically, ‘You go to your dark side and I’ll give you the money!’ [Laughs] The two scenes were really good, but we saw how they could be spectacular, so we thought, let’s just go for it. They were key moments of the script, so we just decided to go back and go for the grand slam on them.”

And as for reports that the ending was being retooled? Don’t believe it. “No, the ending is totally kick-ass,” says Craven. “We’re not gonna touch that. [The scenes being added to are] one scene that’s kind of in the late beginning and one scene that’s a little bit later.”

Based on this info (and from dissecting the trailer like a good Scream obsessive), it sounds like Craven and Co. are amping up Brie’s Ghostface attack scene in the parking garage, as well as Teegarden and Brittany Robertson’s own meeting with the masked killer.

  1. The ending is kickass? Well, THAT’S KICKASS THEN!

  2. More blood, more!!! And yeah, I have heard that the ending is CRAZY!

  3. Man, reading this from the king himself makes all these KW worries of the past few months completely melt away! This flick is gonna be one dark machine!!! Let’s do it!

  4. It’s exactly what I thought it was, just additional shots to help fill out scenes and elevate them. Most films do it and it’s no surprise that this one did it too.

  5. Williamson is SO 1996!

  6. Well, I hope I am NOT SPOILED thus far since they are not doing reshoots. But I heard/seen all kinds of rumored spoilers by now… :\

  7. I reckon they cottoned on that they gave away too much of Alison Brie’s sequence in the trailer and might do a little something something to change it. Just to give us all yet another surprise.
