Who Lives, Who Dies? Scream 4

Who Lives, Who Dies? Scream 4


Release Date: April 15th 2011
Certificate: tbc
Running Time: tbc

Director: Wes Craven

Cast: David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, Nico Tortorella, Adam Brody, Marley Shelton, Mary McDonnell, Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell

It’s been ten years since Ghostface’s last spree of killings. It’s a new decade with new rules. Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette reprise their roles and reunite with director Wes Craven, for the first part in a new trilogy.

Written by Kevin Williamson who brought us the first 3 Scream movies, this one will again feature an ensemble cast of today’s hottest young talent including Emma Roberts, Hayden Scream 4 (2011) PosterPanettiere, Rory Culkin and Adam Brody.

With Robert’s cast as Sidney’s young cousin, Jill, it seems the Campbell’s aren’t out of the woods yet as a new spree of killings begin once again.

But with 10 years passing since we last saw our favourite characters, fans are eager to see how their lives have changed. Did Sidney stay with Detective Kincaid? So far we know Sidney wrote a book based on her experience with the masked killers, something she had previously condemned reporter Gale Weathers for doing.

Gale and Dewey are married and living in Woodsboro, but when the killings start all over again, Gale is there to get the scoop, but this time she might end up on the pointy side of Ghostface’s knife if the trailer is anything to go by!

Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell are both cast in cameo roles; presumably their characters won’t be on screen for longer than an introduction and death, i.e. Drew Barrymore (Scream 1), Sarah Michelle Gellar (Scream 2) and Jenny McCarthy (Scream 3), but fans will have to wait until April next year to find out how it all unfolds because so far, even plot details are being kept under wraps. One thing is for sure; Scream 4 aims to raise the bar once again on horror movies and promises to be brutal, bloody and fun. The filmmakers have also hinted there are some shocks and surprises in store, as well as some prolonged death scenes.

Originally, the series was intended to be a trilogy, but after ten years Bob Weinstein thought it was time for another film. Scream 4 is supposed to be the first of a new trilogy, with both Craven and Williamson signed on for the duration. Filming began in and around Ann Arbor, Michigan on June 28, 2010 and ended September 24, 2010.

  1. NOW…I see who else that was helping Sidney close the door. It was Kate so maybe her and Sidney will have a chase scene together inside the house. But Sidney will escape and Kate will probably still get killed. I thought that Jill that helped her close the door. Kate might help with Sidney’s maybe second attack and Jill’s first attack.

  2. Wow, the trailer is out!! I’m looking forward to this one…!!

  3. My Guess?
    Lives: Jill, Trevor, Jill’s mom, Gale and Dewey.
    Dies: Sydney, Kirby, Charlie, Olivia, Robbie, Rebecca, Detective Hoss, Deputy Perkins, Sherrie, Trudie, Marnie and Patty.
    Killer: Judy Hicks

  8. Actually this may sound weird but they have done the whole the killer films everything look at Scream 2 Billy’s mom was filming everything when she killed people and i just don’t get why they would do that again since they have already done it. I have a feeling this going to be Scream 2 2.0 but named Scream 4.

    • I think you’ve got a point there, “Scream 2 2.0″ is actually great ;) Will be interesting to see though if they can add a smart twist to it and not just “the expected is the new cliché” as the guy in the trailer says. I hope they come up with something good enough to really make it the first part in a new trilogy.

  9. AHAHAH, everyone’s expecting Judy is the killer. I would prefer Jill to surprise everybody!

  10. i have the perfect list of who lives and dies in order
    2 stab characters: lucy hale and shenaae grimes(uncounted)
    Sherrie: Brittany robertson
    Chloe: kristen bell
    Rachel: anna paquin
    Rebecca: Alison brie
    Detective Hoss: adam brody
    Detective perkins: Anthony anderson
    Gale weathers-riley: Courteney cox
    Deputy dewey riley: david arquette
    Charlie: Rory culkin
    Olivia: marielle jaffe
    Trevor: nico torterellla
    Robbie: erik knudsen
    Killer: aunt kate: mary mcdonell, Jill kessler: emma roberts
    Survivors: sydney prescott, kirby reed, marley shleton

    • I have to agree, I think it will open with the 2 Stab characters definitely! Although I absolutely love Gale and Dewey I really think it’s time for one or two of the original characters to die, I hope they give them a really good send off. There’s a lot of speculation about aunt Kate being the killer….interesting!!! This HAS to be THE most anticipated movie in a loooooooong time!

  11. Just saying, again. If Neve campbell dies in this movie.. There is NO motive for scream to follow up with a 5th or 6th movie. Sidney Prescott are these movies… You will loose more than half your fans if she dies.

  12. ok can someone please send me the correct lives, dies, and killers for Scream 4? i dont want some prediction or guess, I want the real information! it would be great. to make sure its correct, put a :) (smiley) after it!
