Well, here we are… at the end of a Disaterous year ! … 2020 !!!! BAD for so many reasons… BUT.. We finally got movement somehow on the next SCREAM film!!
And as we see today, confirmed now by the original writer himself.. Kevin Williamson!! Scream 5 wont be the official title!! Its simply SCREAM !!! A nice nod back to its roots.. and it sort of fits for other reasons too like the fact that the rights to it are now owned by SpyGlass media and also having Paramount Studios take the reins of it also fits to a new title, as the first four films were obviously from Miramax/TWC…
Enjoy Kevins pictures below… ALSO NOTICE,.. the GhostFace mask!! NOT AN ULTRA WHITE!!!!
Well, during 2020 we have certainly seen many a rumour and many actual facts pop up about Scream 5.. and now after all the speculation and confirmations we finally have some filming taking place..
We have also been seeing new pics of Neve Campbell too, who still looks as stunning as ever… I have rounded up many pictures from in and around the set posted by several people on Twitter..
Well, 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.”
