First Look: The Ghostface Killer is Back on the Set of Scream 4
The last we heard about Wes Craven's slasher film franchise sequel Scream 4 was disparaging news for fans of the horror series. Series writer Kevin Williamson was off the project, Craven wasn't in control of the script, and much of the cast wasn't happy with re-writes from Ehren Kruger. But despite all these problems, the production has pushed forward and is moving right through principal photography. Although some spy photos have made their way online from people checking out shooting in Michigan, today Craven gave us a first look (see below via Twitter) at the return of Ghostface, the serial killer who's back for Sidney Prescott.
Honestly, it's not as if this is a groundbreaking first look since the masked killer hasn't changed his look at all. Craven could've easily snagged a picture from any of the previous productions with just the killer in the photo and we wouldn't be any the wiser. Also, in case you don't remember, the original voice of Ghostface, Roger L. Jackson, will reprise his vocal role in the sequel as well. In addition, Jackson is joined by franchise survivors Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette. New cast members include Hayden Panetierre, Alison Brie, Mary McDonnell, Emma Roberts, Adam Brody, Marley Shelton and Erik Knudsen. Screenplay problems or not, I'm looking forward to seeing how Ghostface will dispatch with all of these new victims.
