A new documentary on the Scream franchise is currently in production and rumor has it that Rose McGowan, among many of the other key cast members, has been interviewed for it. The doco will be released on television and DVD to coincide with the release of Scream 4, in theaters April 15, 2011. Can’t wait to see this one!
Anthony Masi, who is currently producing the Hellraiser documentary, is re-teaming with horror journo Ryan Turek on a definitive look at the Scream franchise. Given the blessing of Bob Weinstein and Wes Craven, Turek and Masi have been hard at work on the doc since March and have amassed dozens of interviews with cast and crew from the series. The feature will also include a fictional tie-in that’s to be filmed in Los Angeles later this month. “This documentary will include rare archival footage, never-before-seen photos, new on-set stories, and will reveal the entire success of Scream from its inception right up to the new movie,” Masi tells Bloody Disgusting. Plans are to release the doc (DVD and TV) to coincide with Scream 4, in theaters April 15. Turek, editor-in-chief of Shocktillyoudrop, wrote and directed both the Hellraiser and Scream docs.
Update: ComingSoon.net confirms that Rose will take part in the documentary! It is also confirmed to be titled Still Screaming: The Ultimate Scary Movie Retrospective. They provided viewers with a peek of screencaps from the new doc. Check them out on their site.
