|Q: One place where the MPAA can’t control you is Showtime, and I’ve heard that you might be doing an episode in the second season of Masters of Horror. Is this true?
Craven: It’s a possibility. I certainly don’t want to give the idea that I definitely am, because I’m working on a lot of things that are more my own, frankly. It would be nice to go in with that group of guys, all of whom I know, but I’m not sure whether I’ll be able to do that or want to. It’ll depend on a lot of factors. To this point I was working and didn’t have time to do it. I’m not sure it’s the best thing or not, frankly so.
Q: I’ll tell you from a fan point of view, we’d love to see it. And the guys who I’ve talked to who have done it all seemed to have a great time.
Craven: I’m sure of that. Mick is a great guy and he tells me they have complete freedom and so forth. If possible, I’ll do it. If I can find the script.
|Q: You’ve become a brand name, with “Wes Craven’s” appearing in front of a lot of films. Is that your seal of approval? How do you control that?
Craven: It’s been a tricky thing to control. When we were in our deal with Dimension films, it sort of had been slapped on more by the studio than by myself on projects that might or might not have been the greatest of films. I’m not going to get particular, but I think that was getting a little too sloppy. We’re being very careful about it now, which is one of the reasons we’re doing something we could produce and handle ourselves. With The Hills Have Eyes there was virtually no interference from the studio, only support.
