Personal Quote:

"I always wanted to direct. That's my passion. I was an actor. That went nowhere. I tried directing theatre. Nope. I wrote this movie called 'Killing Mrs. Tingle.' Sold it. It sat on the shelf. My unemployment dried up. I couldn't get work. I had borrowed money from all my friends. I wrote 'Scary Movie' [later retitled: Scream]. Just banged all it out, as fast as I could." - His success story. See more »

Trivia:

Kevin based the villainous character in Teaching Mrs. Tingle (1999) on a teacher who screamed at him in front of the class and told him something he wrote was lousy and that he shouldn't be writing. See more »

Trademark:

Most of his films involve a character named "Casey," such as Scream (1996), Scream 2 (1997), Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998), and The Faculty (1998). See more »
