Originally, the series was intended to be a trilogy, but after ten years Bob Weinstein thought it was time for another film. It is intended to be the first of a new trilogy, with both Craven and Williamson signed on for the duration. Filming began in and around Ann Arbor, Michigan on June 28, 2010 and finished filming on September 22, 2010. It is scheduled to be released on April 15, 2011.
Entertainment Tonight had a spotlight on the movie showing some behind the scene moments. See for yourself after the break.
