While the original Scream film was almost universally loved I include myself in that universethe second and third were, at best, widely tolerated. Color me surprised then that an early test screening is getting all kinds of excellent buzz.

Krueger is blamed by most of the trilogy fans as the guy who wrecked Scream 3. By the time Ehren was writing, I was already kind of shooting. It was a difficult script to figure out, but Kevin was the one who laid out the master plan and all the characters and scenes, the beginning and almost all of the ending. What we had to figure out was the relationships of the characters, how Courteney and David would intermingle with the .
That was the tricky thing. There was always a process of working on the script all the way through the picture. After the test screening in January, Craven and Weinstein did not think two scenes played well for the audience. Aimee Teegarden and Alison Brie returned to Detroit in late January and early February of for four days of additional shooting.
