Scream 3 | 2000
Stab 3 is in production and... well, figure out the convolutions for yourself in the third of the trilogy.
Centred around the production of Stab 3, the film is naturally set around Hollywood, but the movie producer’s office is downtown, overlooking MacArthur Park, and the fictitious ‘Sunrise Studios’ is the CBS Studio Center, 4024 Radford Avenue, Studio City, in the San Fernando Valley.
This time around, Cotton Weary (Liev Schreiber) is the major character to get offed at the movie’s opening. He drives home along Hollywood Boulevard, to his beautiful courtyard apartment in West Hollywood. His home is the 1929 Harper House, 1336 North Harper Avenue – once home to silent stars Norma Talmadge and Roland Gilbert.
The house in the hills, where everyone gathers as script developments arrive via fax, is Runyon Ranch, Runyon Canyon Park in the Hollywood Hills. The house was seen also in Antonio Banderas’ 1999 Crazy In Alabama.
The mansion of the climactic denouement is the Canfield-Moreno Residence and Complex, 1923 Micheltorena Street, Silverlake. Creepy place – this was also seen as the private school in the Halloween sequel H20: 20 Years Later and more recently in Nicolas Winding Refn's wacko The Neon Demon. It’s since featured as the Rock Star mansion in TV’s Rock Star: INXS. It's not open to the public, so there's little to see apart from the gated entrance.
