David Arquette on ‘Ready or Not’ filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett Horror Movie Approach:
Arquette recently explained:
I just want to be true to the characters, that’s all that really matters to me.
True to Wes’ vision and (writer) Kevin (Williamson’s) vision. The filmmakers were fans of the original and it really inspired them. So it’s great to see that. I mean, the more I’ve been in this business and where I’m at now, whenever you can combine something you love… there’s something magical that happens.
And these guys have that sort of approach to horror films. They love the original series, and I think they want to do it justice.
