Turns out Gale Weathers isn’t the only one who can write a book. Sidney has written a self-help book. “She ends the book tour with going to Woodsboro and there she finds her cousin and her aunt and some friends and trouble ensues,” says Campbell.
Gale and Dewey have chosen to settle down in Woodsboro. “We’ve been married for 10 years,” says Cox. “I kinda gave up my job as the entertainment journalist. I’ve written six books, but now I have major writer’s block. I’m bored with my life and bored with my marriage and bored with the silly small town of Woodsboro.” Sidney’s return helps get Gale’s investigative juices flowing again. Says Cox, “It’s actually the anniversary of the first killing in Woodsboro. When she arrives to promote her book, things start happening, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.”
As for the film itself, director Wes Craven says it harkens back to the original “Scream.”
“I think it has echoes to the first [film]. There’s been a whole decade of horror films that in one way or another followed a certain pattern. Like you had torture porn, [and] a ton of remakes,” explains Craven. “The first [‘Scream’] was very much observing where horror had been for the last 10 to 20 years. And this is very much looking at where horror has been for the last 10 years. There’s always somebody trying to figure out what the rules are to keep from getting killed.”
