Reports emerged on Friday that “Scream” star Neve Campbell turned down a role in the planned upcoming sequel/relaunch after scribe Kevin Williamson left a tweet saying “trying to figure out a Sid-less scenario, this sucks” on his Twitter account.
This led to much conjecture, including talk that Campbell’s Sidney Prescott character would either be the killer this time or get killed in the opening sequence.
PopWrap got in touch with Williamson to explain his tweet, here’s how he responded: “I’ve had numerous conversations with Neve. She’s a friend. Nicest girl on the planet. It just ain’t workin’ out and it sucks for me. It was no cameo. I’d never play Sid out that way :) And I ain’t got no Sid-less scenario. So, I don’t know yet what to do. Hate all the wrong info circulating. My fault. There’s a learning curve with Twitter.”
