…..good for you. Once the whiplash of that old, forgotten celeb name subsides, take pleasure in the fact that the once-killin’-it Neve Campbell has turned down an offer to return for the pointless Scream 4. Somebody in the movie biz turning down a quick cashout for what are most likely reasons revolving around artistic pride? Somebody give this woman a shot of Petron and my cell number.
From Scream franchise screenwriter Kevin Williamson‘s Twitter (don’t think I’ll ever get used to Twitter becoming a source for news scoops):
Trying to figure out a Sid-less scenario. She won’t do it. This sucks
“Sid,” of course, being the shortened nickname for Campbell’s “Sidney Prescott.” This little Tweet of Williamson’s leads one to believe that Sidney played a prominent role in his idea for part four. Most likely, she would’ve been the killer, though God I hope Williamson is more creative and less retarded than that.
Yes, Campbell’s denial “sucks” for Williamson because, if this planned Scream revival goes the way of Shelf Purgatory, he’ll be forced to think of an original idea, and we all know how blasphemous that’d be. Who am I kidding? He’ll begin developing a Dawson’s Creek movie, and then when the only cast member down to return is James Van Der Beek, Williamson will really be fucked.
