Craven Explains “Scream 4” Reshoots

With some quick filming going on for “Scream 4” right now, concerns have been raised that the upcoming horror sequel is undergoing some big reshoots.

“Community” actress Alison Brie, “Friday Night Lights” star Aimee Teegarden and director Wes Craven have been photographed shooting new scenes in Michigan, and Craven has explained to Entertainment Weekly what’s going on.

Denying the claim they’re “reshoots”, Craven says “We had a couple test screenings and we saw two scenes where they had moments you could add to and we just saw a spectacular opportunity. Bob [Weinstein] just said to me basically, ‘You go to your dark side and I’ll give you the money!’ [Laughs] The two scenes were really good, but we saw how they could be spectacular, so we thought, let’s just go for it. They were key moments of the script, so we just decided to go back and go for the grand slam on them.”

Craven has shot down claims that the ending is being changed, saying “No, the ending is totally kick-ass. we’re not gonna touch that. [The scenes being added to are] one scene that’s kind of in the late beginning and one scene that’s a little bit later.”
