No more Scream movies as Wes Craven is “done” with Kevin Williamson

25 July 2014 2:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For those who thought the Scream franchise had found new life after Scream 4 (or was it Scre4m?) might be in for some heartache according to screenwriter Kevin Williamson. In an interview with Cinefiles at last week’s 2014 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, Willamson talked openly about the future of the Scream franchise…

“It’s weird, when I pitched Scream 4, I pitched Scream 4, 5 and 6,” Williamson explained to a few journalists. “I pitched a whole new trilogy. I guess Scream 4 never took off in a way they hoped, and so…”

It was announced last year that MTV were working on a TV series based on Scream, which Williamson is not involved in. According to the writer, director Wes Craven and his team are “done” with him.

“I’m curious. I’ll watch it. I’ll give it a go,” he said of the TV show. “Teen Wolf »

Is The Scream Franchise Plagued By Bad Blood Between Its Two Driving Creative Forces?

24 July 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It's a shame to discover the amount of bad blood that exists between the Scream franchise's creative minds. To hear Kevin Williamson tell it, it doesn't sound like he'll be back to the series anytime soon.

Bloody-Disgusting was recently pointed to Cinefilles by an avid reader. The big story coming out of there is that Scream writer Kevin Williamson still has plans for a Scream 5 and Scream 6, but that nobody seems all that interested in making them.

Of course, this has something to do with Scream 4's rather disappointing domestic box office, and also the fact that the franchise is currently being re-imagined as a television series for MTV (with Wes Craven's involvement). What's most surprising (and disappointing) about this news isn't that Williamson has zero involvement in the television series, but that Craven and co. (The Weinstein Company) seem to have written him off.

Top 9 High School Horrors

22 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The ratty hair, the twisted teeth, the oily flesh. No, I'm not talking about the newest movie monster. I'm talking about our awkward high school years! In celebration of the release of All Cheerleaders Die, we're taking a look back at the Top 9 High School Horrors.

Looking back, we can remember plenty of high school horrors, and combination skin is just one of them. There were a lot of possibilities for this list, and we've got 9 of our favorites listed below. But we would have to flunk ourselves if we didn't turn in an honor roll of honorable mentions.

Of course another Lucky McKee film, The Woods, has to be listed, as does Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And those vivacious vixens from The Craft turned up the heat in their high school, and nobody - and we mean nobody - survives Cherry Falls.

And now, on to the...

Rose McGowan’s New Film Inspires Nausea and That’s Just Fine With Her

18 July 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Rose McGowan is through with acting. Vulture caught up with the Scream and Grindhouse star last week at Rooftop Films, where she was screening her directorial debut film, Dawn, a wistful, 17-minute almost-thriller that premiered at Sundance. "[Getting selected for Sundance] as a director was huge, honestly,” she told us. “I almost sank to my knees — and in fact, I think I might have — when I got the word that I got in."The film looks like The Parent Trap (the 1961 version starring Hayley Mills, not the more recent on with LiLo), but it feels like the 1955 Charles Laughton–directed thriller The Night of the Hunter, starring Robert Mitchum, both of which McGowan says inspired her short film. ("And Flannery O’Connor’s writing," she added.) While many first-time directors grow nauseous themselves leading up to their debut’s premiere, McGowan is leaving queasiness to other people — including her audience. "A lady told me »

CBS' Stalker From Kevin Williamson Is Not Another Following

17 July 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Between Scream's violent murders, The Vampire Diaries' blood-lusting vampires and The Following's serial killers, Kevin Williamson has become synonymous with horrifying tales that will most likely end in tragedy. Although his new CBS drama Stalker goes down a similarly dark route in the show's pilot, the executive producer promises this is a very different show from his past work, in particular the bloody and often gruesome Following.  

"In my mind, it's apples and oranges," Williamson told reporters at the Television Critics Association's fall previews on Thursday. "'We have...

Stalker Boss Rejects Following Comparisons, Stylized Violence Label

17 July 2014 5:14 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Kevin Williamson wants you to know his new crime drama Stalker (premiering Oct. 1) is not The Following.

While the Kevin Bacon-starrer “was meant to be a popcorn thriller,” the upcoming CBS series, like much of the network’s lineup, “is a crime drama,” Williamson said Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “This is a procedural. It’s a totally different show. It’s eerie. It’s creepy. It’s suspenseful.”

This is the last day of Comic-Con, and they will be closing it out with some big TV panels like Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy and The Strain.

David Arquette's Fiance Christina McLarty Flashes Engagement Ring for First Time

Look at that rock!David Arquette's new fiance Christina McLarty showed off her stunning engagement ring for the first time at Aspen Peak Magazine's 10th Anniversary with Woody Creek Distillers at Bootsy Bellows in Aspen, Colorado on Sunday. The 42-year-old actor proposed to the brunette beauty on Thursday night during a family dinner in Malibu with their 2-month-old son, Charlie West, and Arquette's daughter, Coco. The happy news comes just a week after Arquette's ex-wife, Courteney Cox, announced that she was engaged – to boyfriend Johnny McDaid. The "Scream" star "wanted his family to be with him when he did it," a source told People.  "David was just waiting for the right time," another source revealed to Us Weekly. "He and Courteney both talked about taking the next step in their relationships … They both want what's best for each other." The couple has been dating on and off since 2011, briefly »

Take Me To The Pilots '14: CBS' 'Stalker'

5 July 2014 10:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.]   Show: "Stalker" (CBS) The Pitch: "'CSI' is still steady, but too often the victims are men and that's scaring off fans of 'Criminal Minds.' We need something with more women in peril." "Yahtzee!" Quick Response: There isn't a thing I can say here that would make a lick of difference to you. If you like "Criminal Minds," you'll probably like this. Shrug. Similarly if you get off on the exploitative violence of "The Following" -- possibly even more exploitative in its parent-torturing second season than in its literarily pretentious first -- you'll probably get off on "Stalker" as well. Me, I found "Stalker" excruciatingly and offensively glib. Here, Williamson is dangerously-close-to-literally cutting and pasting scenes and twists from his slasher and horror movies -- cheap fake-out shock-scares, threatening phone calls and parking lot terrorizing paranoia are his jam -- but here they've been repurposed in a show that likes »

Why It Doesn’t Make Sense for Weinstein’s TV Division to Go Public

3 July 2014 6:26 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Imagine Harvey Weinstein having to explain his business decisions to Wall Street on a quarterly basis.

“I just don’t see it,” said media analyst Hal Vogel. “It would be fraught with friction considering he’s not known to be the friendliest of people when it comes to investors poking into his business.”

The Weinstein Co. is a well-established indie operation known for its acquisition, production and marketing chops, awards season campaigning and “the Harvey factor,” the gut instincts and naked aggression displayed by the company’s co-chairman when making crucial decisions on his projects.

On Wednesday the New York Times first reported that the Weinstein Co. was considering spinning off its television division into a public entity, the most recent news of a long-touted prospect. But analysts and bankers alike told Variety that possibility is incredibly slim with or without its namesake co-chairman at the head.
