Neve Campbell Confirmed for "Scream 5"

 

In her iconic role as Sydney Prescott, Neve Campbell said it best in 2011's Scream 4...don't mess with the original. And luckily, the upcoming fifth film in the franchise won't have to as it's been confirmed, after two months of negotiations that started back in July, Campbell is now set to reprise her popular role.


Campbell will join the franchise's other regular co-stars David Arquette and Courteney Cox. All three have been with the franchise since the original 1996 film. While all three legacy characters are returning, the story is set to reportedly follow an entirely new female protagonist who returns to her home town to try to find out who has been committing a series of vicious crimes.


While the original film's screenwriter, Kevin Williamson, is returning to executive produce, the script is being penned this time by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) and Guy Busick. For this project, Busick is re-teaming with the directing duo Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett who were at the helm of Busick's last screenplay, the acclaimed 2019 horror comedy Ready or Not. Hopefully, being the first film in the series not directed by the late Wes Craven, everyone involved brings new life to the franchise. Stay tuned!

@Rambo: Yep...good intentions but that right that is how you loose the rest of your audience. Setting guidelines for art is never a good idea.

Yep,that's the way to go. Have you read that recent update by the academy that starting from 2024 only movies that encourage diversity will be allowed to compete for 'best film'?

They will be pushed back for sure as well as any other big budget production. Stay home,stay safe and watch your netflix and main stream media brainwashing you.

@Badchad: Yeah, but until it’s confirmed I’m not writing about it. Although I wonder if the low box office return of “Tenet” (It made $10 million in the states this past weekend) might dissuade them for releasing any other major films this year.
