Wes Craven is back in Michigan for reshoots on his horror sequel Scream 4. While the production is indeed back in Michigan, the director has revealed that they aren’t reshooting scenes. They’re adding two new ones:
“We had a couple test screenings and we saw two scenes where they had moments you could add to and we just saw a spectacular opportunity. Bob [Weinstein] just said to me basically, ‘You go to your dark side and I’ll give you the money!’ [Laughs] The two scenes were really good, but we saw how they could be spectacular, so we thought, let’s just go for it. They were key moments of the script, so we just decided to go back and go for the grand slam on them.”
Wes Craven also indicated that the ending will not be altered:
“No, the ending is totally kick-ass. We’re not gonna touch that. [The scenes being added to are] one scene that’s kind of in the late beginning and one scene that’s a little bit later.”
Our story from earlier this week also included a new photo which Wes Craven tweeted from the set, that featured Alison Brie. It seems her scene with Ghostface will be tweaked in this current round of shooting.
Scream 4 comes to theaters April 15th, 2011
