On Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 parts of the film will be re-shot on Clement Street in the township, said Michelle Nabozny, executive secretary to Northville City Manager Patrick Sullivan.
“It’s the same set-up as before,” Nabozny said, “with the Northville Square parking lot as (the) base camp.”
Last summer, Scream 4 was filmed throughout Northville with stars Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette spotted around town.
The crew will be shooting 14 hours each day during their Northville stay. The filming is expected to be done primarily indoors. It is unclear whether any of the stars will actually be here.
“It could just be lighting and special effects,” she said. “They’re coming back to do some additional suspense and terror for opening sequence.”
According to the film website, it is still scheduled to be released in April.
Traffic, parking impact minimal
Clement Street will be closed on Monday and Tuesday. Only residents and film crew will be allowed on the street. There will be barricades at Clement and Seven Mile and Clement and Frederick roads. Orchard Drive is the suggested alternative.
"The impact is going to be less than it was last time,” Nabozny said.
Only about a third of the Northville Square parking lot will be used by the film crew, she said. This includes part of the upper deck.
