Jamie Kennedy NOT Back for Scream 4!

Jamie Kennedy NOT Back for Scream 4!Yet another Internet rumor has been put to rest concerning the latest return to the knife, Scream 4. Despite a lot of speculation it turns out one of the series’ most beloved characters will not be coming back after all.

In an interview with FEARnet scribe Kevin Williamson broke the news that Jamie Kennedy will not be reprising his role as the cinephile extraordinaire.

We’re not that movie,” he tells FEARnet. “We’re not that universe where you can bring people back from the dead. That would be just a cheat. It’s such a disservice. Everyone’s like, ‘When’s Randy coming back?’ I’m like, ‘You know what? I would love nothing more than to have Jamie Kennedy in the film.’ However, to have Randy in the film, it sort of just takes it… I mean Scream 2 was a lie, you know? It’s a false move. So I just won’t do it. I can’t do that. I just won’t do it.

As for the future of the new proposed trilogy, whether parts five and six are made is dependent on how part four fares at the box office. “4 is its own movie,” adds Williamson. “It has a beginning, a middle, and its own ending, which will be satisfying hopefully.” Well, at the very least we won’t be left hanging!

Look for more on Scream 4 soon!

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

    Randy’s dead. Keep him that way. Bringing Randy back would lower the stakes for the rest of the series, and no death would really matter. The fact that Williamson realizes this and is unwilling to cave to a fan demand that would gut his efforts is surprising and refreshing. My respect for him, which was not very high, just went up a notch.

    Well it’s about time someone does something smart with this series. There is no way they could have included Randy without it being fucking stupid.
