Wes Craven Talks Scream 4 and Mixing the Old with the New!

Though he’s primarily making the press rounds in promotion of his latest film, My Soul to Take, legendary director Wes Craven cannot escape questions regarding the highly anticipated next entry into the Scream franchise, Scream 4.

In an interview with The LA Times’ Hero Complex Craven dropped the following on Ghostface’s next stab-a-thon …

It was old-home week, in a sense, to work again with Kevin and Neve [Campbell] and Courteney [Cox] and David [Arquette]. It was the thought of having a good time and making an interesting movie and continuing that kind of storyline. It’s pretty unusual for there to be a series of films to have the same core actors for that many years; it’s been 16 years of following the lives of these characters. Usually in genre, they knock them off, and the next sequel it’s somebody new. This one has had the interesting thing of introducing new people and keeping with the old ones as well.

Always good to hear the positives, and who would know better than the man himself? Hit up the link for more, including Craven on the dreaded Elm Street remake, and look for more soon!

Scream 4 stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Britt Robertson, Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, Nico Tortorella, Mary McDonnell, Anthony Anderson, Aimee Teegarden, and Marielle Jaffe with confirmed cameos by Anna Paquin, Kristen Bell, Shenae Grimes and Lucy Hale.

Look for Scream 4 in theatres on April 15th, 2011, and to stay on top of things, be sure to follow @wescraven on Twitter.
