Scream 4 Actor Nico Tortorella Sets the Record Straight Regarding On-Set Tensions

We’ve all heard the rumors about the tension that supposedly filled the set of Wes Craven’s Scream 4, and like most stories, things were probably blown way out of proportion. Finally someone has addressed all the silliness.

Actor Nico Tortorella, who plays Trevor in the film, recently sat down with Movieline to shed a little light on the goings on.

“When we sat down for the first table read, everyone knew there were issues going on with the script, everyone knew what was going on with Courteney and David [who have separated], and it was there,” says Tortorella. “But we’re such a light group of people, all of us involved with this movie, and cast-wise we jumped into this and wanted to have a party and have a good time doing this. And I feel like that kind of overshadowed what was going on underneath, especially with relationships that were going on, and even the script.”

“It was all good. We were here to learn and have a good time and go along with the process. We had heard stories from the first three movies that were all the same, if not worse, than what was going on with this fourth movie. The original three had been through a lot more than we went through on this fourth movie. They just grandfathered us into it. They were like big brother and sister, like, ‘Listen, guys, this is all good.’ That being said over and over again was like, all right, cool. Let’s keep going. The script was changing on a daily basis and we just had to do what we had to do.”

Scream 4 stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Britt Robertson, Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, Nico Tortorella, Mary McDonnell, Alison Brie, 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.

“Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey (David Arquette) and Gale (Courteney Cox), who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (Emma Roberts) and her Aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell). Unfortunately Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.”

    Out of proportion? If the script was changing day to day as the quotes claim it’s almost a certainty this movie will fail.

      While that’s annoying for sure, believe me when I tell you frequent script changes are not uncommon.

      Dude, this movie can have a guy being raped by a horse and it’d still make big bucks at the box office.

      Spin, on what essentially sounds like an utter mess. I’ll go and see this, but I’m not expecting anything beyond a mediocre experience!
