Arquette Has A Role For President Bush In Horror Sequel


David Arquette The Tripper

David Arquette is already planning a sequel to his movie directorial debut, The Tripper - and this time he's bashing President George W. Bush.
In the new film, a serial killer in a Ronald Reagan mask terrorises music fans at a festival, and Arquette hopes to feature Bush in the follow-up.
He tells Movies.com, "I've already written the sequel. George W has some things to do with it, but he's not the killer. It's called The Tripper 2: The Burning Bush."

Arquette's Killer Reminds Him Of Reagan Horror

Actor David Arquette insisted the killer in his new comedy horror movie The Tripper wore a Ronald Reagan mask because the late former President used to terrify him.
In the new film - Arquette's big-screen directorial debut - the killer attacks music fans at a rock festival, and the Scream star admits the imagery of Reagan stalking youngsters gives his quirky movie a serious edge.
He explains, "Reagan's policies had a direct effect on the world around me. I remember waking up one morning and you'd see homeless people all around you.
"It happened pretty much overnight and it was pretty bizarre and it was a direct connection to a cut in mental health.
"(I hope) the movie points out how a leader's decisions can have an affect on the world."
But he doesn't want movie fans to dwell on the serious undertones of the movie too much - because he'd like the film to become a cult hit, like The Rocky Horror Picture Show, where fans gather weekly to watch the show at late-night cinemas and dress as their favourite characters.
He adds, "I hope people make up games. I hope they sneak things in."

Quirky movie star David Arquette will premiere his new horror film at Hollywood's most famous cemetery tonight (11APR07).

He says, "I grew up right down the street on Melrose and Gower. We always knew about the cemetery. My older brothers and sisters would sneak in and run around in it.
"VALENTINO's buried there, and DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS JR and Johnny Ramone."
The movie, which is co-produced by Arquette and his wife Courteney Cox, follows a group of friends who are stalked by a killer in a Ronald Reagan mask at a rock festival.
