Aubrey Plaza Reflects On Bombing An Audition For The Role Of Ghostface In The scream franchisee. Plaza is an actor known for her dry humor, sarcastic lines and bringing darkness to the characters she embodies. She is best known for her role as April Ludgate on Parks and Recreation, a young, cynical member of the parks department and the love interest of Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt). Plaza also starred in several classic cult films such as Scott pilgrim against the world, Ingrid goes westand The Small hours.
scream is a slasher film directed by the late horror icon Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson. In the original 1996 film, Neve Campbell stars as Sidney Prescott, a teenage girl who, just a year after her mother’s tragic murder, is tormented by an anonymous caller. The caller takes on the persona of Ghostface, an iconic masked figure wearing a long black robe and armed with a knife. Throughout the film, Ghostface picks Sidney’s friends one by one until their true identities are revealed. scream‘s self-awareness and meta-commentary on horror styles continue to resonate with fans eager to identify the masked killer in every episode. scream has received four sequels to date, most recently with the 2022 soft reboot, as well as an MTV television series that lasted 3 seasons.
While speaking with Liv MarksPlaza gets candid about her disastrous scream audition that lost her the role of Ghostface. When asked if she ever let an audition go horribly wrong, Plaza says she was rejected many times while working in New York. The actor then remembers auditioning for a… scream movie. Square says:
One of the earlier auditions – this isn’t even that bad, but I just remember one of the earlier auditions I had was for Wes Craven for the Scream remake, or something? And they’d told me, “You’re going to audition to play – You’re going to play a character that you eventually find out is the killer.” So I took that very literally, and I kind of thought, “Okay, I’m going to dress like the killer,” you know? And I went in and I looked awful, I was really goofy, because I thought, “I’m a murderer.” And then everyone was glamorous and they all looked amazing. I just looked crazy. And they said, “The whole point is we can’t know you’re the murderer, and you look like a murderer almost immediately.” Anyway, I screwed that up. I didn’t get very far… I went full method, and it was a bad, very bad idea.
Which scream movie could Aubrey Plaza audition for?
Although Plaza doesn’t outright mention which episode in the scream franchise she auditioned for, it’s easy to put the pieces together. Prior to the most recent movie in the franchise, the last attempt to reboot the series was with 2011’s scream 4. The film follows Jill Roberts (Emma Roberts) who, jealous of her cousin Sidney Prescott’s fame, hatches a plan to recreate the Ghostface murders. Because Plaza didn’t appear on screen in roles when the original scream movies have been made, it is likely that Shout 4 is the film she auditioned for. Despite her failed audition, Plaza fits into this version of Ghostface and is said to have brought her uniquely dark sense of humor to the character.
While the film featured returning cast members and was well received by fans, Shout 4 not have the same greater cultural impact that the original trilogy had more than a decade earlier. Due to this mixed reception, the franchise only returned to the big screen this year shout, featuring a new cast of characters alongside returning actors Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox. shout 6 is slated for a March 2023 release, with more sequels likely to follow. Maybe in the future there will be another opportunity for Plaza to decorate a Ghostface mask scream movie.
