News Recap

Well, I'm back, here is some of the news that I missed while the site was down.

"Production delays have bumped the release date of Scream 3, the second sequel and final chapter in the life of perpetually pursued Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell again), from Dec. 10 to Feb. 4. So here's something scary to tide you over: Courteney Cox - excuse us, newlywed Courteney Cox Arquette - plays intrepid reporter Gale Weathers. Parker Posey plays Weathers in Stab 3, the low-budget horror movie-within-a-movie that provides the setting for Scream 3. David Arquette is back as dimwitted lawman Dewey. Fright master Wes Craven once again directs, while cast newcomers include Patrick Dempsey, Jenny McCarthy and Scott Foley of TV's Felicity." - USA Today
Also, Popcorn was able to get a tiny interview with David. Here is what he had to say...
After two attempts on his life, Dewey Riley is back for more. Actor David Arquette confirms he has wrapped work on 'Scream 3', Wes Cravens' final chapter of the blood-soaked trilogy. "It feels liberating," he jokes at having finally shaved the mustache worn by his local cop character. But Arquette is more serious when it comes to disclosing secrets about the movie, although he does confirm Carrie Fisher's appearance in the cast, and reveals sketchy details of the plot.

"It's kind of weird because we're not supposed to tell too much," he says. "But I'll just say she works in a studio and the whole movie takes place in Hollywood."
'Stab 3', a sequel to the movie-within-the-movie, is said to be the arena for the new slayings, but all Arquette will reveal is that, "It's behind the scenes of a movie. There are cast members that are actually playing Courtney's character and my character and stuff like that."

'Scream 3' also stars Neve Campbell, Parker Posey, Patrick Dempsey, and Lance Henriksen. Principal photography finishes today in anticipation of a February 4, 2000, US release.
Also, Hollywood Reporter talked about Scream 3's new release date.
A Christmas Day release for Dimension Films' "Scream 3" has been changed to Feb. 4. "We just finished shooting," said Mark Gill, Los Angeles president of Miramax. "Christmas is very crowded." In a message posted Friday on his official Web site, "Scream 3" director Wes Craven incorrectly said the new release date was Feb. 7. "Well, that's not a Friday," Gill said. The film stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Parker Posey.
