Wes Craven scraps werewolf movie and starts again

Wes Craven has scrapped the first cut of his werewolf movie Cursed and reshot the film almost from scratch.

Eleven weeks after shooting finished, Scream director Craven called the cast back to redo practically everything, reports Teletext.

Christina Ricci said: "It's sort of like going on to another movie. And this time it's a lot more fun. We have a lot more action and it seems better. I don't think he was happy with what he was originally getting."

Ricci, who stars in the film with Shannon Elizabeth and Portia de Rossi, added: "If you scrap an entire movie and shoot it all over again, rewrite the script, then yes, it can be saved."
