When Scream 4 (watch it HERE) was filming again in 2010, Kristen Stewart was knee-deep within the Twilight saga. The third of the 5 movies was launched in 2010, and the fourth (which was Half 1 of a climactic two-parter) was launched in 2011, the identical 12 months Scream 4 reached theatres. She was starring in a number of the greatest motion pictures of the time, so it is sensible that she was contacted to star within the opening kill sequence of Scream 4. For sure members of the viewers, seeing Kristen Stewart die in the beginning of a film may have been simply as surprising because it was to see Drew Barrymore die in the beginning of the primary Scream in 1996. However Stewart declined the supply. Throughout a current interview with Slant, she defined why:
So it’s the Drew [Barrymore] character that will get killed to start with. They usually created a complete sequence the place lots of people received killed to emulate the Drew factor. However it was simply going to be one particular person, and I used to be like, “I can’t do a Drew. I can’t contact that.” Have you learnt what I imply? However, yeah, so then they ended up doing, if I’m remembering accurately, a bigger sequence and never only one sufferer.”
She is appropriate. Scream 4 begins with a movie-within-a-movie-within-a-movie sequence that options six totally different characters somewhat than only one sufferer. The celebs of that sequence are Lucy Hale, Shenae Grimes, Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin, Britt Robertson, and Aimee Teegarden.
One sufferer performed by Kristen Stewart wasn’t the one various possibility explored; screenwriter Kevin Williamson not too long ago confirmed that he had written a gap sequence by which franchise heroine Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) can be the one attacked by Ghostface in the beginning of the film, and he or she would kill that Ghostface earlier than having to take care of one other one (or two) later within the story.
With a sixth Scream now in growth, Slant requested Stewart if she would signal on to star in that movie if she was contacted about it. She mentioned,
Possibly. I’d learn the script. I really like Neve Campbell a lot. She was very good to me, and it was very satisfying that she’s a really good particular person. I really like (the primary Scream). I’ve watched it not too long ago, as an grownup although. It’s so gnarly. I really like the film as a result of it loves motion pictures. The best a part of Scream is what it says about movie. It’s so self-aware. It folds in on itself like six occasions. I really like how a lot [Wes Craven] loves motion pictures and the way embedded that’s. It’s a complete movie nerd sort of film. It’s not only a flasher flick. It’s a good looking film. It’s so exhausting to look at. I’m like, “I don’t have the abdomen for that shit anymore.” I used to be like, “Oh, man, that is very, very, very intense.”
Stewart is now an Oscar nominee; she’s up for the Greatest Efficiency by an Actress in a Main Position Academy Award this 12 months for her efficiency as Princess Diana in Spencer.
