Young actor Nico Tortorella is one of the upcoming new additions to the SCREAM series and recently revealed a bit about his own character and the rumors plaguing last summer’s set.
Speaking to Movieline, Tortorella explained his character is that of Trevor, “the kid everyone loves to hate in high school. On a group level he’s an asshole and he picks on people, but on a one-on-one level when you see him in his relationship he has a huge heart and just wants to love and be loved, and may hide all that in his walking life when he’s being the bad guy.”
When asked of his past comparison to Skeet Ulrich’s Billy in the first film, he clarified, “When I said that, I meant that it’s set up that in the first movie there was Neve [Campbell], there was her boyfriend, and there was that whole storyline. The parallel that I have with Emma in the new movie, even certain scenes are set up a lot like the first movie. Granted, the end… I guess we’ll all just have to wait and see what happens.”
Finally, he addressed the reports of an ever-changing script and other troubles amidst making the picture. “I mean… right when we sat down for the first table read, everyone knew there were issues going on with the script, everyone knew what was going on with Courteney and David, and it was there. But we’re such a light group of people, all of us involved with this movie, and cast-wise we jumped into this and wanted to have a party and have a good time doing this. And I feel like that kind of overshadowed what was going on underneath, especially with relationships that were going on, and even the script. It was all good. We were here to learn and have a good time and go along with the process. We had heard stories from the first three movies that were all the same, if not worse, than what was going on with this fourth movie. The original three had been through a lot more than we went through on this fourth movie. They just grandfathered us into it. They were like big brother and sister, like, “Listen, guys, this is all good.” That being said over and over again was like, all right, cool. Let’s keep going….I mean, the script was changing on a daily basis and we just had to do what we had to do.”
