The Lifetime original movie An Amish Murder, directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal and based on the novel Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo, tells the story of a woman (Neve Campbell) who grew up Amish and, after returning to her small hometown as its Chief of Police, must solve a string of horrible murders. The film also stars Christian Campbell, Noam Jenkins, C. Thomas Howell and IronE Singleton.
During this recent interview to discuss the film that she stars in and executive produced, actress Neve Campbell talked about how Lifetime approached her with the project, what she knew about the Amish lifestyle prior to filming, how she approached playing this character, acting with her brother, Christian, and the possibility that this could turn into a TV show. She also talked about her desire to continue producing, balancing motherhood with work, doing a guest spot on Grey’s Anatomy, the chances that Scream 5 will ever happen, where she’d like her career to go next, and her thoughts on social media. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
Although Scream 4 served as a helpful reminder that we didn’t really need another Scream movie, apparently not everyone got the message. Because the film grossed $97 million worldwide off a $40 million budget (plus P&A), director Wes Craven believes Scream 5 could be on the way. The director tells Movieweb:
The odds are that there will be (a Scream 5). It is something that Bob Weinstein wants to do. He tends to do what he wants to do. So I am inclined to think that there will be (another sequel). Whether I will be a part of it or not? I don’t know. My contract gives me the first look. If they show me something that is really wonderful? Of course I will be a part of it.
Back in April 2010, we reported that Craven was already signed for Scream 5 and Scream 6, but it now appears that he simply had first-look deals rather than a firm commitment to helm a new trilogy. Hit the jump for more details.
While filming on Scream 4 (or is it Scre4m) doesn’t begin until this June in Michigan, the first poster has just been released. In addition, Wes Craven spoke to EW about what fans can expect in the next installment and how if the sequel is successful, he’s already signed for Scream 5 and Scream 6. Hit the jump for more. Scream 4 arrives April 15, 2011.
