Scream 4 reunites Wes Craven with Kevin Williamson, who kicked off a horror- movie revival with his “Scream” script in 1996.The story brings back original cast members Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox, though the new flick is seen as a passing of the baton to a new generation of slasher victims, with Williamson already under contract to write a fifth installment.
Filming is scheduled to commence this July in Michigan. The film is currently slated to hit theaters on April 15, 2011.
