We'll try to dance around spoilers but the finale of the second season of "Boardwalk Empire" was shocking not only in terms of storyline but also with the fact they tore out the heart of the show, or at least what/who we thought was being developed as such. We're fascinated to see where the show goes from here, but at the very least, it looks like they'll be gaining one great character actor.

Say what you will about the "Scream" franchise, but it's a financial juggernaut. Together, the low-budget meta-horror picks have so far brought in over $500 million and it's no wonder that Dimension Films are returning to the well nearly a decade after "Scream 3." However, the path to "Scream 4" wasn't exactly smooth sailing. Franchise creator Kevin Williamson, who originally penned the script, departed the film last summer, with Ehren Kruger (”Scream 3,” “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”) coming in and making drastic changes to the script with reports of cast members jumping ship or simply being unhappy with the new direction their character's had taken. But with the film now a week away from hitting theaters, it looks everyone is friends again. Recently Williamson revealed that his blowup with Bob Weinstein was just par for the course, and that they wound up hugging it out Ari Gold style. And at the end of day both Williamson and Wes Craven would be happy to return for "Scream 5" and "Scream 6" -- with caveats of course.

Last summer, word from the set of "Scream 4" was ugly. Franchise creator Kevin Williamson, who originally penned the script, departed the film, with Ehren Kruger ("Scream 3," "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen") coming in and wielding his mighty shitty pen all over the script. The rumor was that the changes pissed off the cast of the film, so much so that Lauren Graham actually left the film because her role had been greatly reduced and Hayden Panettiere was frustrated that her character had been "dumbed down significantly." Ever since, there have been rumors of reshoots and rewrites and other signs pointing to a plagued production, but with the film around the corner, Williamson has finally addressed his exit from the film describing as just a routine blowup between friends.
