September 10th 2020: Neve Campbell confirmed for Scream 5

Neve CampbellWell, here we are again, with all this news of Scream 5 cast members coming i have personally only been waiting for one main headline!! And im sure many other fans will agree too, ‘Would Neve Return?’ …. We knew she was in talks and was listening to what the film makers wanted to do, and how they loved the films and wanted to respect Wes Craven too.. and now finally, we have our news we wanted… She’s back!!! And now she completes the trio, so again, we have our beloved characters to go into a new story.. My personal wish is that they DON’T kill them, but dont let them off too easy either, if the story has to carry on without them, (if a Scream 6 or 7 was to be possible) then i would always like to know that Dewey, Gale, and Sidney were always still at least alive in the Scream world!

Info from Deadline.com below…

Neve Campbell will reprise her role as Sidney Prescott in Paramount-Spyglass’ relaunch of Scream.

She joins previously announced Scream gang David Arquette and Courteney Cox as Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers, and new cast members Jack Quaid, Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega. Production is planned to shoot in Wilmington, North Carolina for a Jan. 14, 2022 theatrical release.

Radio Silence said, “We’re pinching ourselves! It’s hard to express how much the character Sidney Prescott shaped our love of movies and to have the chance to work with Neve is truly a dream come true. It just wouldn’t be a ‘Scream’ movie without Neve and we’re so excited and honored to join her in Woodsboro.”

Campbell said, “After spending time speaking with Radio Silence, they have shown such love, respect and admiration for Wes Craven and all that he’s created in the ‘Scream’ franchise. I am beyond excited to step back into the role of Sidney Prescott and return to Woodsboro.”


Meanwhile, one thing that always was ongoing when Scream 4 was in progress was Fan Posters, and this time it is the same… one in particular has been doing the rounds below,…  by a chap named Creepy Duck Design



August 24th 2020: Jenna Ortega Joins Scream 5

Well, seconds after the last cast annoucement we got another shortly after, Actress Jenna Ortega now joins alongside David Arquette, Courteney Cox, and Melissa Barrera… Info from Deadline below…
The news im personally eagerly awaiting is that of Neve Campbell… Im praying she comes back, and if she does, then i hope her involment is just as much as it was in Scream 4, and not a repeat of Scream 3’s limited time we had with her…

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Count You’ and ‘Jane the Virgin’ actress in for ‘Spyglass Media Group and Paramount Pictures’ upcoming Scream, She joins franchise cast members David Arquette and Courteney Cox who’ll reprise their respective roles as Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers, as well as newcomer Melissa Barrera (In the Heights).

August 19th 2020: New cast member confirmed for Scream 5 – Melissa Barrera

While 2020 has been a hell of a bad year, although in th ebackground we still seem to be seeing development proceed for Scream 5… the latest we heard of course was that Courteney was back as Gale, and the next piece of news i was personally hoping for was that Neve was coming back.. But nothing known as of yet… even so, we now know that anothe ractress has been confirmed, via Deadline

July 31st 2020: Courteney Cox to return for Scream 5…

Well, after a short while, we have more news regarding Scream 5… and this does sort of remind me of the pre-Scream 4 days… as it was very similar to how cast would slowly confirm their returns, and im sure it almost went the same way … and Neve may have been last to confirm for the fourth film… But today… we see more info , Gale Weathers-Riley IS returning… Deadline.com released THIS ARTICLE earlier..

Thank god both Dewey and Gale are coming.. i sincerley hope Neve can yet again complete the trio as they did ten years ago!! What better way to have them all together again and to see the film hopefully releasing 25 years after the first!!   Info below from Deadlines article..

Radio Silence tells us, “We can’t imagine Scream without the iconic Gale Weathers and are so incredibly thrilled and humbled to have the opportunity to work with Courteney. We’re absolute mega fans of her work and we’re so excited to join her in the next chapter of the Scream saga!”

June 26th 2020: Spyglass Media and Paramount teaming up to bring us SCREAM 5 !

Well here we are, still ‘mostly’ in lockdown… and little pieces keep popping up with regards to Scream 5… This time its just the facts regarding that Spyglass Media and Paramount Pictures will be releasing the future SCREAM 5… and its planned for a 2021 release… 25 years after the first film!!  As far as anyone officially knows, David Arquette is the only cast member confirmed right now, but we all assume, that Neve and Courteney are to follow, at least with talks…. We already know that Neve has had contact… but i hope the main ‘Trio’ will hopefully be back!! HOPEFULLY!!

More from Variety below… FULL ARTICLE HERE! 

Spyglass Media Group and Paramount Pictures have joined forces to co-produce the relaunch of “Scream,” sources tell Variety.

The latest installment, in which David Arquette is set to reprise his role as Deputy Dewey, will be directed by “Ready or Not” filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.

Additional castings to follow.

Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett will work with James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick, who are co-writing the project. Project X Entertainment’s Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak are serving as producers while creator Kevin Williamson and the third member of the Radio Silence trio, Chad Villella, are executive producing.

Targeted for release in 2021, Paramount will market and distribute the film worldwide in all media with select international territories and domestic pay 1 television being handled by Spyglass.

Principal photography is expected to begin late summer in Wilmington NC. Additional casting updates will be announced in the coming weeks.


May 25th 2020: Neve not signed on as of yet, but a letter was sent..

Well, here we are yet again, these little bits of news just keep coming steadily now… This time with Neve again, while she has NOT officially signed on to Scream 5 at this time, it seems she IS open to the idea, but like with Scream 4, it has to be for the right reasons, and done right, and to think, with Scream 4, we knew Wes was directing… yet she said No to Kevin Willimason at first too..  I cant remember the full story or what she said afterwards in the documentaries, but im sure Wes had a hand in getting her back… This time though, well, i only HOPE that she gets a bit more talking done with the two directors..
And that is what the article today includes, it seems the Directors of the future Scream 5 have sent a letter to Neve… Info below from Collider..


You’ve said that you were initially reluctant to do another Scream without Wes Craven, which is very understandable, but what ultimately you changed your mind and got you interested in that possibility?

CAMPBELL: Well, I’m not a hundred percent on it, but to be honest, the two directors (Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett) have made some great work. I’ve watched their films, and they’re really talented. They wrote a letter to me, expressing what great fans of Wes’ work they are, and how honored they are that they’re getting the chance to make Scream 5 because the Scream franchise is the reason that they’re directors now. So, that was really sweet. They really wanna honor Wes’ style of work and honor the movies. That was a lovely thing to hear. So, we’ll see. Hopefully, we can all see eye to eye on everything and make something great, but it’s a process.

Have you always felt like there was more of Sidney’s story left to tell?

CAMPBELL: I think you can always tell them more with these stories, and they’re such fun films. There’s obviously a huge audience for them, and the audiences wants to see more of them. You can always go further with the journey. Certainly, with Sidney, she comes to some new shift in her life, every time, and I don’t know. We’ll see.


May 22nd 2020: Kevin Williamson talks via Podcast.. Original Scream 4 5 6 plans and more..

Well, it seems that more and more just lately we are seeing the doorway to more SCREAM talk open further and further… This time we see (or hear) a lot of info from Pre-Scream times and also more recent times from the writer we always wanted to be invovled in our beloived Scream films!! Kevin Wiliamson…
He always seems elusive (or simply busy as hell) in the past, his time in Scream 4 was brief to say the least.. and finally we can now listen to some of his stories via this Shock waves podcast, with Rob Galluzzo, Elric Kane, Rebekah McKendry, and Ryan Turek… Its a damn good listen.. and even mentions the original plans for what was meant to be a second Trilogy back in 2011..

As some may remember, a screenshot off the william morris agency intranet back in 2009 was sent to me and had info saying Williamson had signed a deal for a Scream 4, 5 and 6..  those other two films never came to fruition obviously after things went sour between Kevin and Bob Weinstein..
The talk with Kevin starts around the 59:30 time stamp… He talks all the way to the end….




May 18th 2020: Scream 5 gets Dewey back…

Well, after the last post i didnt know how long it would be before i would be back again, especially with another Update about Scream 5 !!!
But it seems like now is the time that talks are getting underway slowly, Neve has recently been in contact with the film makers, and now it seems that David Arquette has joined that same club, with confirming his return as Dewey in SCREAM 5…
Bloody Disgusting.com and many other sites were updating us all yesterday with this news, which surely does please fans..

Info below from Bloody-Disgusting….

David Arquette, who has expressed interest in reprising the role of Dewey Riley several times in recent years, has been officially confirmed to star in the upcoming relaunch of Scream, it was announced today by Peter Oillataguerre, President of Production for Spyglass Media Group, LLC!

Arquette of course played Dewey in all four of Wes Craven’s Scream films, and this huge announcement 100% confirms that the new movie will be taking place in the same world.

Plot details are under wraps but the film will be an original story co-written by James Vanderbilt (Murder Mystery, Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Guy Busick (Ready or Not, “Castle Rock,”) with Project X Entertainment’s Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak producing for Spyglass.

Creator Kevin Williamson will serve as executive producer. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett of the filmmaking group Radio Silence (Ready or Not, V/H/S) will direct and the third member of the Radio Silence trio, Chad Villella, will executive produce alongside Williamson.

Principal photography will begin later this year in Wilmington, North Carolina when safety protocols are in place.

Arquette said, “I am thrilled to be playing Dewey again and to reunite with my ‘Scream’ family, old and new. ‘Scream’ has been such a big part of my life, and for both the fans and myself, I look forward to honoring Wes Craven’s legacy.”


May 10th 2020: Round up of 2020 so far.. Rumours and news on Scream 5, and GhostFace figures

Well, here we are… almost halfway through 2020 already… and its been a funny (as in weird) time for us all with this worldwide pandemic causing nothing but trouble, but even before that we as GhostFace and Scream fans already had news about new merchandise on the way… and as time went on, we also got more small glimmers on info regarding Scream 5…

Firstly, its the newer NECA figure.. arriving later this year, ( JULY 2020 is stated on the NECA site) .. It was all the way back in 2011 we had NECA figures, we had the full plastic figures and also the half cloth, half plastic types, both with the Classic and Zombie masks in use, the figures were also featured in DVD-Blu ray box sets for the movies too..

The figures got mixed reviews by many fans, and lots didnt like the half plastic half cloth types, although they did end up being sought after, and even today you can find them on ebay at higher prices as fans now know thet are more rare, we also had a GhostFace Head Knocker, which was much more well recieved, and is the rarest to find now out of those released in 2011..

Now 2020 is here and we have another type coming…. Text from NECA website below…   Pictures are also from the NECA website..

Ghostface stands 8″ tall and is fully poseable, with a tailored robe, hood and sleeves modeled after the real life Ghostface costume. He features a screen-accurate sculpted mask, interchangeable hands, and comes complete with his signature knife.

Blister card packaging with removable protective clamshell and all new custom illustrated artwork.

 

 

 


Second… the LDD / Mezco Toys figure… announced early on this year, and looks to be a really nice sculpt on the mask, i was sent a few pictures of this with different backgrounds, the figure looked really good, it will be 10 inches and come in a ‘Window Box’ (Think of the very early horror headliners figure) and it will be that style of packaging … main plastic window on the front, not a blister pack.

You can Pre-Order it from the Big Bad Toy Store... Details from the LDD site here too… Pics below…  RELEASE ALSO SET FOR JULY 2020



Well, lastly (for now) we have the rumours that keep popping up about SCREAM 5…. Whilst there has been some response lately from Neve Campbell there hasnt been as much from David or Courteney or even Hayden Pannetierre.. Many people have stated they love to see Kirby back, and some even saying that she should be the main character now.. (Which isnt something i would want) , but the most recent thing from Neve is… below… Via RottenTomatoes…  From May 6th Article.

“We’re having conversations – I have been approached about it,” she told Rotten Tomatoes. “The timing’s a bit challenging because of COVID. You know, we only started the conversation maybe a month and a half ago, so it’s going to take some time to figure out how it’s all going to work out…. We’re negotiating, so we’ll see.”

It seems she has faith in filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, whose most recent film was the Certified Fresh Ready or Not.

“The two directors wrote me a very touching letter about Wes Craven and how he was such an inspiration to them and how they really want to honor him, and that meant a great, great deal to me. So we’ll see. Hopefully we can all see eye to eye on the project and find a way to make it.”

Campbell added: “I’m so grateful for these films… I love Sidney Prescott. It’s always fun for me to step back in her shoes, and it’s always fun for me to see the cast come back and make one of these films again and try to make another good one.”


While i do hope personally to see a Scream 5 in future, it has to be done right, the MASSIVE LOSS of Wes Craven may affect it too much, but as Neve stated the film makers are trying to honor him and do the right thing…  one thing i notice nowdays though, is that the slightest little thing that crops up on a SCREAM 5 and its all over the place!! Social media and website news has certainly changed since way back in 2010 and 2011 when me, and John Valeri (SCREAM FRANCHISE EXAMINER) and Rodrigo (HELLOSIDNEY.com) and ST.net (John Klyza) was about reporting about the filming of Scream 4, and seeing Wes and other cast take to twitter to post up info and pics, now i see a SLIGHT bit of info go online and already someone somewhere will have made a 10-15 minute video and stick it on YouTube at their earliest convinience..!!!!  Posting their speculations!! (And thats all they are) ….
And these are some things that aren’t even confirmed as of yet!! Hence why i don’t rush to get things posted about it !!!

At this time though, this COVID-19 virus is delaying EVERYTHING…  so while little glimmers of light do appear for SCREAM 5, DON’T be so hasty to go believing it just because of a YT video or RUMOUR that may be hold water 100% …

For now., stay safe!! and keep hydrated!! and stay healthy as much as you can!!


November 19th 2019: SCREAM rights bought up by SpyGlass – Regulars returning?

Hello again, for a while now we have been hearing of a possible reboot of SCREAM, mostly in the way that Blumhouse had an interest, yet nothing ever used to suffice after hearing that info, on social media there would always be a fan that thought he/she was sharing a link to an article that said fan thought nobody had seen, but we all had seen it!! It was now getting to be old news, and the main fact that we lost Wes seemed to make fans say ‘Leave it alone’.. which many agreed with..

Then we come to November 6th 2019..
Bloody-Disgusting add the EXCLUSIVE NEWS that SpyGlass are now resurrecting GhoistFace… (excerpt below)

While Craven had directed all four Scream films before his passing, various filmmakers would get behind the camera for a television series that ran for two seasons on MTV and a third on VH1.

All four films remained canon while the series would create its own mythology. It’s unclear if the next film will continue to be canonized within Craven’s universe or be a remake, but we are hearing that, as of this writing, Williamson is not writing the screenplay.

The fact that at this early stage Kevin Williamson doesn’t seem to have any involvement is a major thing for me personally, and while there were fallout’s between Williamson and Bob Weinstein during SCREAM 4, at least we still had some sort of contribution from Kevin, and apparently Wes was writing bits of the scripts too in between takes!! But at least Scream 4 was completed, albeit a bit stressful!

Then we come to a more recent date.. November 18th.. Rumors start that the original cast are set to return.. something that takes me way back in time to 2008/09 when the very early news articles were starting up about the trios return, and although they did end up doing so ill never forget one of Kevin Willamson’s tweets back then in early stages simply stating ‘She said she wont do it!…’ in relation to Neve Campbell at the time turning it down when first being asked to return…

Below i have another excerpt from Bleedingcool.com… in relation to the trios return again…

A new report states that while nothing is officially decided on (more labeled as rumor mill material) producers of the next Scream movie are actively interested in reviving the franchise with Neve CampbellCourtney Cox, and David Arquette. If true, this could mean that the response from fans has been something Spyglass is very aware of, and could potentially give us more hope for their take on the iconic horror film series.

Despite the fact that this is strictly a rumor, if there’s any substance it would mean we are one step closer to seeing the trio reunite for one more stab at the Scream franchise. What are your thoughts on Scream 5 bringing back our favorite survivors? Are you excited about a chance for more Sidney vs Ghostface?

While i have seen the mentioned articles here at the time of publication i haven’t rushed to publish it here, as its way too early for us fans to start getting just a little bit excited..
Like in 2008/09 it is just early rumors overall here, NOTHING is concrete evidence as of yet regarding the trios return, but IF a fifth film does come our way with original characters then i stand by my overall opinion all along i had regarding Scream 4 in regard to our regular trio!! Which was.. (Put them through hell if necessary, give them fights and scratches and bruises but DONT kill them).
I always said that for Scream 4 if we didn’t have 5 main people then there was no point, those wanted were Wes, Kevin, and the Trio, and thankfully we got it, even if Kevin did depart.. and with another film coming in future i say the same again, just with no Wes, for obvious reason…
