Campbell said she was apprehensive about returning to 'Scream' after the death of director Wes Craven.
As fringe's go, Courteney Cox's in Scream 3 was every bit as scary as the murderous action unfolding on screen.
David Arquette has urged Neve Campbell to join Scream 5, insisting that she is the “heart and soul” of the entire series.
It might have been a pivotal moment in the horror genre, but for Neve Campbell, it was Scream that made her turn her back on Hollywood.
The 'Scream' star takes on her first Hollywood role in over 5 years alongside the famed wrestler-turned-movie star.
After the announcement that ‘90s horror ‘The Craft’ was getting a remake, it appears it’s actually getting a sequel, according to the film’s producer. HitFix revealed the news after all talk on the reimagining of the 1996 tale starring Neve Campbell had gone worryingly quiet. “I wouldn’t say that we wouldn’t so much call it a remake as a ‘twenty years later,” Wick said.
It has been speculated that Campbell - who has largely eschewed mainstream film roles since 2000′s ‘Scream 3′ - agreed to return for belated 2011 follow-up ‘Scream 4′ largely out of loyalty to Craven.
The ‘Scream’ movies may have brought actress Neve Campbell to international film stardom, but she seems to be pleased that they’re over and done with. Asked by The Guardian about her years playing the perpetual ‘final girl’ Sidney Prescott, the 42-year old actress says, “I’m so glad those days are over.
Of course, many of Craven’s most celebrated films came earlier, notably ‘The Last House on the Left,’ ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ and ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ - but in some respects ‘Scream’ seems even more Craven’s signature series, given he directed all of the films. Indeed, 2011′s ‘Scream 4′ proved to be his final feature. Dusting off the tired slasher format with a hefty dose of knowing humour and self-reference, ‘Scream’ not only revitalised the genre but also gave a new generation of viewers, hitherto ignorant of 70s and 80s horror, a crash course in slasher film history.
