New Scream 4 picture, Neve Campbell interview

Long dormant slasher series Scream is returning to the big screen in 2011.

Ten years since Scream 3, Wes Craven returns to direct one of modern cinemas most successful horror series, reigniting the movies that in 1996, gave a star turn to then young actors Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Jamie Kennedy, Matthew Lillard and Skeet Ulrich. Entertainment Weekly recently premiered the first photo still from the movie (seen here).

Scream 4 will see a return to the big-scream for Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette. Joining them will be contemporary young stars Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, that champagne popping video), Emma Roberts (Julia’s niece), Alison Brie (Community), Adam Brody (that guy from The OC) and Aimee Teegarden (Friday Night Lights).

Kevin Williamson (who wrote Scream, Scream 2 and co-wrote Scream 3) returned to write the fourth installment. No word as of yet regarding plot but we can safely assume that there will be many self-referential moments, movie-in-movie scenes, people who we thought were already dead, and Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell cameos (we are also sure they will both be dead within the first 10 minutes of the film).

Scream 4 is slated to hit cinemas April 15, 2011. Neve Campbell recently sat down with Entertainment Tonight to talk about the latest installment, how it was being back on set, and the success of the previous films. You can view the video below.
