Director Wes Craven is recovering after undergoing knee replacement surgery.
The Scream moviemaker has long suffered with joint problems in his right leg and he recently checked into hospital for an operation to fix his health issue.
In a post on his Twitter.com page on Monday (19Dec11), he writes, "Just had my right knee replaced. Enough with the creaking hinges! Looking forward to being able to climb through the cables on set soon!"
