Hey folks, Harry here... Ya know... some studio needs to save Wes Craven... He's being tormented on CURSED... Miramax apparently lost American McGee's ALICE property... Whoever has it... get Wes involved, he's got to come out of this Dimension dementia that he's in. I mean, his next released film will be CURSED and publicly "he didn't really want to talk about it..." Where's the passion, the heart, the soul that creates film? Personally, I hope Wes goes off into the mountains somewhere... the sierra madres... why not? Find his vein, bag up the gold that pulses and make it glimmer on that screen again! Maybe he'd be perfect for that remake of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS... he could set it in Hollywood, play the the McCarthy role himself... Trying to be corrupted by the vegetable brained madmen that run the town... the end of the film is him ripping the screen in two, coming out life size on the screen in the audience of each showing, screaming that they are here already!
I just got back from the SCREAMFEST screening of Scream and a Q&A with Wes Craven. Some tidbits from the Q&A...
SCREAM 4....Craven said THERE WILL NOT BE A SCREAM 4, at least not with his involvement. He said that the Scary Movie movies basically killed the possibility of a Scream 4, and he isn't interested in returning to that story.
CURSED....He didn't really want to talk about it, but he mentioned that things are coming together again and that they're starting up shooting November 14 for a release date in 2004.
ALICE....he mentioned that Miramax just recently lost the project to somebody else, so now he won't have any involvement in the project.
HILLS HAVE EYES REMAKE....He said that he and Patrick Lussier are serious about doing a remake of Hills Have Eyes, with Craven producing and Lussier directing.
He also mentioned that he really wants to start writing again, so maybe we'll see a new movie by WRITER/director Wes Craven soon.
