He’s shooting down rumors with the hope of tricking you into seeing ‘Scream 4′.
In today's edition of No Sh*t, Sherlock News, Roger L. Jackson, the actor who provided the voice of Ghostface killer, not rapper Ghostface Killah, in the previous Scream movies is returning for Scream 4. He pushed "staring into the abyss" two months and now there's an opening in his schedule. Jackson proclaimed in his normal voice:“It’s a lot of fun, I love the work! It’s going to be a great horror sequel.”So there you have it, the guy who does the voice of Ghostface says not to worry about all the rewrites and recasting that is going on with Scream 4, it's going to be a great horror sequel. He's elated the gang could get back together so he can continue to shake off the stink of being the voice of Skeet Ulrich. (CinemaBlend)
With Sony finally naming Andrew Garfield as the heir to the Spider-Man throne, it was shaping up to be a good week for movie reporting. Not because I'm excited by his work. I don't even know it. I'm just excited that someone finally made a decision, and we can sail into the holiday weekend without further annoyances. But now it looks like Scream 4 is going to fill the void left by Sony's sudden on-set of decisiveness. Zap2It has news that the Scream 4 soup has been pissed in.It's being reported that series creator Kevin Williamson has been released from the project and series detractor Ehren Kruger has been brought on to rework the script. Now castmembers are jumping off left and right as the script is said to have been immensely "dumbed down." As a huge fan of the first two films and a guy who wants to punch the third film in the stomach, I really hope these reports aren't true. And if they are, I hope Kruger is able to redeem himself after the way he mishandled the conclusion to the original trilogy. Bring your A game, Ehren, like you did on The Ring. David Arquette deserves at least that much.
MTV caught up with Kevin Williamson to discuss one of his many projects. The busy writer talked about his update of Curtis Hanson's The Bedroom Window (which he is slated to make between Scream 4 and 5). The original The Bedroom Window was based on the book The Witnesses by Anne Holden. In Williamson's version, a man is sleeping with his boss's wife. One night after a little bump and grind, she witnesses a murder outside his bedroom window. Because their relationship has to be kept on low, the man steps in and acts as a witness to the murder. Soon the killer is on his tail. Sounds sexy and suspenseful but there's only one man who can handle this kind of drama. Paging R. Kelly. (MTV)
