Bloody-Disgusting attended the New York Comic Con convention for a special press day with Wes Craven, producer of Fox Atomic's The Hills Have Eyes 2.
The site reports on some great scoops that range from a major update on Scream 4, a possible The Hills Have Eyes 3 and an untitled project he's writing for Rogue Pictures. In addition, they have a description of the exclusive footage from The Hills Have Eyes 2 that was shown at the event.
B-D reporter Clint Davis writes in:
"I just got back from the Wes Craven press thingy for HHE2. While there I got two things of note: We were shown a completed scene from the movie that looked, have to say, fantastic (description below) as well as a montage of various other footage that was too quickly edited to glean much info other than it appears that a good portion of HHE2 takes place underground, in the mines and caverns of the desert. Second thing, Craven answered questions for a about fifteen minutes or so, informally. Not a lot was said of much interest (a LOT about how HHE2 was inspired by current world events; he pretty much hewed close to the studio line. Making matters more difficult, for some reason, they elected to leave the movie's trailer running at full volume for the event's duration, making the audio quality near-worthless...
However, I was able to get this:
The question of future plans was brought up: "I'm about to sit down and write an original screenplay for Rogue Pictures; going to lock my self in a room for a while and work on that."
When asked about the possibility of a Hills Have Eyes 3, he said, "there could be, it all depends on this one. I wouldn't be at all surprised, though, because we think [HHE2] will do really well." This was followed by a question regarding the likelihood of a Scream 4. Craven replied with, "Actually, I received a call about that for the first time the other day... obviously, I've been asked about that for a long, long time... I think that it's not completely off the table at this point, as far as the studio making it. I was asked if I'd be interested, but I said it would depend on the script. [Scream 4] isn't something that's around the corner or anything, they are now thinking about it." Craven has been quoted for years as saying that Scream 4 would never happen, but it appears that that's changed, at least somewhat.
