- Although The "Scream" series was intended to be a trilogy, a fourth movie has been rumored on and off several times since the release of the third installment. The movie was officially announced in July of 2008 by The Weinsteins/Dimension in a press release, and is due for release in 2011; eleven years after Scream 3 (2000).
In July of 2009, after years of rumors and negotiations, David Arquette and Courteney Cox signed up to reprise their roles. Neve Campbell was confirmed in September 2009.
On March 22, 2010, Variety announced that Wes Craven was officially signed on as director.
Originally planned for a October 2010 release date, but after writing delays the scheduled release date is April 15th, 2011.
After missing a Thanksgiving and January 4th deadline, Kevin Williamson delivered the first draft of the script in mid-February 2010.
Scout Taylor-Compton and Shane Dawson auditioned for roles in the movie.
Ashley Greene was considered for the lead role, but ultimately, Emma Roberts was cast.
The film suffered two casting changes in quick succession as shooting had begun. Lake Bell had originally been cast as Judy Hicks but was forced to drop out (which she announced via her Twitter account on June 24th 2010) due to "scheduling conflicts." She was replaced by Marley Shelton. Six days later, Lauren Graham, who was originally cast as Kate Kessler, dropped out also citing "scheduling conflicts" as well as "script changes." She was replaced by Mary McDonnell.
At a table read on June 25, 2010, the actors were told to stop reading at page 75 to prevent those already cast in the film from knowing the climax.
With four installments, this landmarks the Scream franchise as being one of the only horror franchises to have its main characters return for all its sequels.
Just as she does in her real life marriage to David Arquette, who plays Sheriff Dewey Riley, Courteney Cox's character, Gale Weathers, now has a hyphenated name. She is now billed as "Gale Weathers-Riley" since, at the conclusion of Scream 3 (2000), Dewey proposed to Gale and they are now married in this film.
Due for release almost 15 years after the original Scream (1996/I).
In May of 2010, Cathy Konrad, the producer of all three previous movies in the Scream series, filed a lawsuit against the Weinstein Company stating her production company had a first-rights deal with the Weinstein Company to produce all films in the Scream series. The lawsuit was eventually dropped.
Wes Craven stated he was not going to return as director unless the script was as good as the first Scream (1996/I).
Wes Craven has a cameo in the movie. In June of 2010 he asked his fans following his Twitter account what his cameo should be.
The first teaser trailer debuted at the 2010 Spike TV Scream Awards.
Charlyne Yi said on "Conan" (2010) that she auditioned for the role of the Ghostface Killer.

Kevin Pennington was rumored for the role of Trevor Sheldon.
Patrick Dempsey was rumored to reprise his role from Scream 3 (2000). The writer, Kevin Williamson, claimed the rumor to be false. Also, Dempsey would be filming Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) at the same time for shooting Scream 4, where as it would be unlikely to have the availability to reprise his role.
The role of Deputy Perkins is played by Anthony Anderson. Anderson appeared in several of the "Scary Movie" sequels. The original Scary Movie (2000) was a spoof of the "Scream" films.
Neve Campbell and Emma Roberts, two of the lead actresses in the film, both admitted to being terrified of horror films. Emma Roberts stated she was hid under the covers while watching the first 3 'Scream' films. Also, Neve Campbell stated a while back that she can't watch the films, because she doesn't like being scared.
Kevin Williamson, the writer of this film, has expressed a subtle annoyance towards the release of the film. During production producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein brought in Ehren Krueger (the writer of 'Scream 3') to polish up the script. Wes Craven later stated that the main ideas, story and concept of the movie were written by Williamson, with minor changes made by Krueger.
