Easily one of the shittiest sequels ever made, Scream 3 sucked so badly that it really dulls the rest of the series. The most obvious one to blame for this is Ehren Kruger (although the casting sucked too).

So, fans rejoiced when the original writer Kevin Williamson came back for Scream 4. That joy quickly went away when it was announced that Williamson was leaving the project and the Weinsteins were bringing back Ehren Kruger of all hacks.

This pissed off the cast and fans alike and has us all worried about the turd that the film could potentially be. Now Williamson finally opens up about what went down. And by opens up, I mean, plays nice so that he doesn’t hur the box office take. From EW:

There were all these rumors that you were fired from Scream 4. What happened?
Oh, I got in a big fight with Bob. God love him. I’ve worked with the man for 16 years out of my 16-year career. We get in some fights. We’re a very dysfunctional family over there at the Weinstein Co. We got into a massive fight creatively and we hugged it out and then we moved on.

Can you allude to what the struggle was about?
Oh just, you know — I felt strongly about this and he felt strongly about that and then I did this and that wasn’t right. Everyone was second-guessing everything because everyone wanted it to be so perfect. That’s exactly what happened. The one thing that Bob and I connect on very basically, why we’ve worked successfully together for 16 years, is we’re passionate. And no one is more passionate than Bob Weinstein. And it is that passion that allows you to make a movie where he will believe in you and trust in you and it’s also that passion that can cause fights and cause struggle. For 16 years, he’s kept me gainfully employed. I love him. Yes, we got into the fight, but then the big clincher came: Contractually, I had signed on to do The Vampire Diaries [Williamson's series for The CW]. You know, the little thing called first and second position? I was in first position to do Vamprie Diaries and second position to do Scream 4. So guess what? It was a contractual thing. Warner Bros called up and they said, “Dude where are you? You have a show that’s on the air — where are you?” I did double duty as much as I could but The Vampire Diaries was also very important to me.

When did you and Bob reconcile?
Oh, I haven’t talked to him yet.

This man obviously does not have a grasp on the term “hug it out.”

Aw Hell, ‘Scream 4′ Now Slated To Suck http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/aw-hell-scream-4-now-slated-to-suck/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/aw-hell-scream-4-now-slated-to-suck/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 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.

Kevin Williamson Peers Through ‘The Bedroom Window’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kevin-williamson-peers-through-the-bedroom-window/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kevin-williamson-peers-through-the-bedroom-window/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 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)
