“Scream 4″ update & Wes Craven speaks on David Arquette entering rehab
From the Scream Franchise Examiner: Scream 4 news—including the newest batch of so-called spoilers. (Those of you who are at all weary may want to stop reading here—though we wouldn’t dare share anything we thought to be a legitimate spoiler.)
Director Wes Craven publicly shared his support for actor David Arquette, who recently entered rehab, with EW.com yesterday: “I’m glad to hear that David is going into rehab. I saw him a little bit more because he was present during more of the shoot than Courteney. He was in a lot of pain, so it’s good that he’s getting some help.” He referred to the two as “very professional people” when addressing the concern that Cox and Arquette might not wish to promote the film together, and added, “Frankly, none of us knew anything was going on [during filming]…I don’t know what their problems are, but it’s not that they hate each other that’s for sure. It’s something else.”
So what exactly is the spoiler here?
Well, there really isn’t one—except that numerous people have taken Craven’s comment about Arquette being on-set for a greater period of time than Cox as an indication of her character’s fate.
SFE, however, has a different interpretation. First, Craven is much too self-aware to let something so crucial slip. And second, Cox’s abbreviated shooting schedule probably had more to do with her obligations to TV’s Cougar Town (which began filming its second season about one month into the production of Scream 4) than her role. Movies are shot non-sequentially for many reasons—one of them being to accommodate the schedules of those involved.
