The Making of 'Scream': Matthew Lillard looks back on filming the horror classic

In honor of the release of Scream 4 this Friday, EW is looking back at the original 1996 film and talking to cast members about their best production memories. Matthew Lillard played Stu Macher, who was ultimately revealed to be one of the film’s two killers, along with best bud Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich). “It’s weird now that so much time has elapsed and we all know that it’s become iconic, like a piece of film history,” says the actor. EW talked to Lillard about reading the original script for the first time, filming the movie’s intense climax, and if he’s sad that his character didn’t make it to any of the sequels.  READ FULL STORY

Drew Barrymore talks her next directing project 'How to Be Single' -- EXCLUSIVE

After both producing and starring in 2009’s He’s Just Not That Into You, Drew Barrymore has already taken audiences through the emotional (and comedic) twists of break-ups and make-ups. Now, the 36 year-old star has announced plans to helm a similarly dating- themed project called How to Be Single, her second directing gig after 2009’s roller-derby flick Whip It. “Love is never gonna be a tired subject,” Barrymore tells EW. “Being single, this one definitely speaks to me and I’ve explored it a lot in the last year and a half. I’m at that age where I’m sort of straddling a great line right now and I can see both sides very well.”

Single, based on the 2008 novel by Liz Tucillo and adapted by He’s Just Not That Into You’s screenwriters Marc Silverstein and Abby Kohn, will follow a group of New Yorkers and their various dating adventures over the course of ten years. READ FULL STORY

'Scream 4' star Courteney Cox on David Arquette: 'We're probably better now than we were during that movie'

Courteney Cox reprises her role as tabloid reporter Gale Weathers in Scream 4, out this Friday, but it’s a very different Gale than we’ve seen in the other films. “Her life is pretty dull and she wants some excitement,” says the Cougar Town star. “She’s been married to Dewey for like 10 years. She’s been writing books. She’s completely tapped out and going through a major dry spell. Sidney comes into town to promote her book.” And that’s basically when all hell breaks lose and folks start dyin’. EW talked to Cox about the movie’s difficult production, her memories of the original film, and the status of her relationship with husband David Arquette.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Do you remember reading the original Scream script for the first time?
COURTENEY COX:
Oh yeah. I went after it! I wanted to play that part. I loved it. I thought the script was funny and scary, and the opening with Drew Barrymore was insane. I was such a huge fan. READ FULL STORY

Uwe Boll to make film about the financial crisis: 'It's a Taxi Driver for a new generation.'

Prolific German director Uwe Boll tells EW that he plans to make a film about the financial crisis called Bail Out, and a fourth BloodRayne movie, even though the straight-to-DVD third entry in the vampire franchise won’t be released until early summer. “I have two projects in development,” says the filmmaker. “One is BloodRayne 4, to make some money. And one is Bail Out, about the financial crisis. It’s a thriller where a guy actually strikes back and starts killing all the investment bankers.”

Although Boll is infamous for directing such widely criticized horror films as House of the Dead and Alone In The Dark, he has also made a number of more serious-minded movies, including 2008’s Vietnam War movie Tunnel Rats and 2009’s Darfur. Nor will this be Boll’s first financial industry-related film. In his 2000 movie Sanctimony, Casper Van Dien played a stockbroker and serial killer. READ FULL STORY

Johnny Depp talks about plans for his 'Lone Ranger' reboot -- EXCLUSIVE

The actor will play the role of Tonto in the project, which is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer with original Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski attached to helm. “What we’ve got so far screenplay-wise is really great, really funny.”

Depp, who is part Cherokee, feels a special connection to the role of Tonto. “I always felt Native Americans were badly portrayed in Hollywood films over the decades,” he says. “It’s a real opportunity for me to give a salute to them. Tonto was a sidekick in all the Lone Ranger series. [This film] is a very different approach to that partnership. And a funny one I think.”

For more about Johnny Depp’s future movies, the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film On Stranger Tides, and all the rest of the stuff you’ll be watching, hearing, and reading in 2011, pick up the new 2011 Preview! issue of Entertainment Weekly.

'Thor' definitely has some anger issues -- EXCLUSIVE photo

Thor-movieImage Credit: Zade Rosenthal/Marvel StudiosThor (Chris Hemsworth) is different from other Marvel superheroes. “Most Marvel stories are about ordinary people becoming extraordinary,” explains Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige. “Thor is an already extraordinary individual.” But while he may be a mythic god of thunder with a seriously powerful hammer, as you can see in this exclusive image, the guy’s also a hothead. In director Kenneth Branagh’s 3-D epic, his all-seeing father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) banishes him to Earth to learn humility.

Well, here’s the real, clean, clear, and expanded photo. If it looks strikingly different than the classic Captain America get-up — bold colors, flimsy material, a mask with weird little wings — that’s definitely by design. READ FULL STORY

'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' EXCLUSIVE: See Edward and Bella on their honeymoon in this week's issue!

breaking-dawnAttention, Twilight fans: Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first look at The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1. The shot, which is only available in our print edition, features Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) as husband and wife — on their wedding night. “It’s one of the most anticipated scenes,” Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon tells EW. “I spent a tremendous amount of time thinking about it. The anticipation is part of it and you want to play with what people expect and maybe subvert it a little and surprise them.” (Over Thanksgiving, the director teased fans with a separate shot from the scene in question of Bella’s hand clutching some feathers.)
