'Scream 4': Kevin Williamson talks killing plans, Ghostface
Just how safe are returning characters Sidney, Gale and Dewey? Williamson tells Fearnet that just because those beloved characters -- played by Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette -- have become a staple of the first trilogy, doesn't mean they're not fair game for Ghostface in the upcoming film.
"[Director Wes Craven] and I feel one-hundred percent that we're gonna need to surprise the audience," said Williamson. "If we don't, there's no reason to do it ... It's a 'Scream' movie. People have to die. And I'm no stranger to killing people. Even on 'The Vampire Diaries' we'll take regular characters and just kill 'em."
A few other tidbits from the interview:
- We won't see Jamie Kennedy's character Randy return: "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."
- Plans for "Scream 5" and "Scream 6": "['Scream 4'] has to be good in order for us to make a '5' - '5' will be a continuation of '4.' The deal for '6' is not done. I mean, I pitched three films."
- A favorite character could go rogue: "It's possible. I think Dewey, Gale or Sidney could become Ghostface."
