Jamie Kennedy Back for Scream 4?

Jamie Kennedy Back for Scream 4?Though we all watched in amusement and horror as Jamie Kennedy’s cinephile character was killed off in Scream 2, we were also kind of bummed out. His character was arguably one of the best that the franchise has known, and Scream 3 definitely suffered without him. So the question beckons … will he be back for Scream 4?

We know. He was killed onscreen. How could he be back? Does anyone on TV or in movies actually stay dead anymore? According to CHUD “sources very close to the production tell [site scribe Devin Faraci] that the producers of Scream 4 are talking to Kennedy about returning to the franchise.” However, there’s been no mention of how they intend to bring back good old “Randy”.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see!

Scream 4 Synopsis
The horror series that reignited the genre and grossed more than $500 million worldwide is back! From Kevin Williamson, creator of the original Scream trilogy, the new film sees the return of cast members Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette along with a group of new stars, who can all hopefully stay alive long enough to figure out the new rules to this one-of-a-kind horror franchise!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • James Coker

    I’m with you there buz, i’m for this too, i think it would be nice to see ghostface back on the big screen, Now if only hollywood would bring back the other 90’s horror icon THE CRYPTKEEPER now that would be great

    • Katsumi

      I have to say I agree with that, when I was a kid the Crypt Keeper gave me night mares for days it would be awesome to see them bring him back but I don’t think they will I mean if they do..

      It’ll prolly end up being some type of crazy remake of Demon Knight or Bordellow of Blood, and they’ll have some no name actors or young kids in it…

      • Vanvance1

        Demon Knight was a seriously fun flick.

        I don’t see it needing a remake though, the genre is full of hundreds of films with the same premise. In truth the concept is remade every 2 or 3 months.

        People trapped somewhere with monsters. It’s a staple of the genre.

        • AngryChairr

          Demon Knight was okay. Bordello of Blood was the good one. Shame everyone, Dennis Miller included, seems to shit on it.

          And really, I’d want Tales From the Crypt brought back as a weekly series as opposed to one-off movies. The show was just so much more fun.

  • Emy

    Maybe he’ll be back by way of more uncovered tapes…

    • Floydian Trip

      It’s right in front of our noses. Before his heart stopped they cryogenically froze his body so that he could be fixed in the future. In the year 2065 aboard the hospital ship Enola Gay he is resurrected and begins catching up on decades of horror movies he’s missed while the ship picks up what looks like floating debri that is actually a head with a hockey mask on it so they regeneratye the body and now we have JasonXI vs future Scream. The Enola Gay has taken orbit around a planetoid which appears to have no life and is a complete desert world but faint signs are being picked up so an away team is assembled to drop down to Ceti Alpha V.

      Jamie Kennedy feels warning bells going off in his cinephile head. Something about this planet and one name comes to him…

      Khan vs Jason….the ultimate space battle

      I guess more of the Scream cast can be onboard somehow and then they can walk around and tell eachother “It’s like being in a Wes Craven movie”

  • Floydian Trip

    WES CRAVEN PLEASE QUIT NOW! McDonalds is hiring, I’m sure you wouldn’t be able to fuck things up flippin’ burgers.

    • Terminal

      Oh shut up, he’d probably want to remake the big mac and be called a genius for doing so.

      • Vanvance1

        The Big Mac needs a remake. It needs it now.

        A few small changes so it didn’t induce projectile vomiting would be fine.

        Like saw 4, I will skip Scream 4 and scream 5 and scream 6 and scream 7.

        When they hit Scream 8… well I’ll probably watch that one.

        • Floydian Trip

          The tenth movie is where it’s at. Jason X baby! Or Jason 10!

          • Terminal

            Uber-Jason, Jason 2.0, the Termijason!

          • Floydian Trip

            Let’s not mix a true genious like Cameron into slasher fare. He wipes his boots on reels of shitty horror movies before he steps into the studio.

          • Terminal

            I’d sit through Avatar again before ever watching another Scream movie.

            Way seriously, dude. WAY.

        • Terminal

          Good news! Craven is selling the recipe for the big mac to Fox Atomic so they can remake it in to something edgier and hipper! And he’s being called a genius for doing it!

          I’ll skip all of the Screams and just watch Leslie Vernon again.

  • Katsumi

    I’m very happy for this movie and I think it’ll be great to see them bring the Scream Trilogy back again though I have some idea’s on what I like to see happen.

    If they don’t bring Randy back I’d like to see more of his ssister from three I bet she could add to the plot and stir some things up

  • Terminal

    Wow, so far this movie has every indication it’s going to be rather ridiculous. Sigh.

    • The Buz

      I’m all for this.

      • Terminal

        Oddly enough, I’m not surprised.

        • LifeMi

          I’m with Buz on this one, Terminal. I dug Scream and Scream 2 (I’ll give you that Scream 3 sucked) and I’m looking forward to Scream 4. It has the possibility of sucking, but it could also be good. As far as bringing Jamie Kennedy back, I’m not sure how that would work out. The videotape gag from Scream 3 was ridiculous and I can’t imagine them going that route again. Maybe he’s still alive or they go the flashback route ala Saw sequels. Either way, I’m still optimistic about it.

          • Terminal

            Every “what if” with this movie has been idiotic. What if Kennedy’s character has conveniently taped videos of himself how to survive the killer? Stupid. What if he’s shown through flashbacks? What purpose would that serve? Stupid. What if he cameos as himself? Stupid. What if he didn’t really die? Stupid. What if he’s the killer in this one? Stupid.

            He’s revisiting the same damn characters, regurgitating the same story, reusing the same formula.

            This has every chance of failing and I see nothing here to look forward. I’m not surprised people are looking forward to it. This is a time where the Final Destination movies are a hit, and Jennifer’s Body is considered a cult classic. Sad stuff.
