Deputy Dewey standing outside Woodsboro Police Station (Scream, 1996).
When construction started in downtown Plymouth, MI in August 2010 only those who knew their Scream movies well might have realised what was going on. A facade was being built on a vacant lot between two other buildings facing the town’s Kellogg Park. By the time it was finished a couple of day’s later, it would be almost impossible to tell that this wasn’t a real building. Only a peek through the windows or into the lot behind, or a knock on the very realistic fake brick, would give you a clue that this was a rapidly-constructed film set.
For those concerned that Woodsboro 201o won’t resemble the town circa 1996, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Over the next few days I’ll be posting some in-between shots of the construction of the Woodsboro Police Department.
