SCREAM 6 Confirmed With Creative Team of the 2022 film Set to Return
Paramount and Spyglass have confirmed that Scream 6 will be coming our way with the same creative team that brought us the latest entry this year. The fifth and latest entry in the franchise was the first film that was not directed by the late Wes Craven and although some might have been skeptical of the film without the mastermind helming the film, that has been put to rest since the films immense success at the box office with over $100M earned last week.
Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett will return to helm the next entry with James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick co-writing the screenplay once again. The film will be produced by Paul Neinstein, and William Sherak. With executive producers Chad Villella, Gary Barber, Peter Oillataguerre, and Kevin Williamson.
Representatives for Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Entertainments said they are “tremendously grateful to the fans around the world who enthusiastically received our film. Commenting on the sequel greenlight, Radio Silence also added that “working with such a wonderful and talented family of creators – and in the lineage Wes and Kevin so expertly built – has been the thrill of a lifetime and we’re so excited to bring the next chapter in the Scream saga to life.”
Writers Vanderbilt and Busick also commented on the news, saying:
“Is this real life? Getting to collaborate once again with our friends on the next installment of the Scream story is more than we could have hoped for. We are overwhelmed that we get to continue to play in the sandbox that Kevin and Wes created. It is, as Ghostface would say, an honor.”
Scream 5 included returning cast members Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers, David Arquette as lawman Dewey Riley, Marley Shelton as Sheriff Judy Hicks. SCREAM also introduced a new set of characters including Dylan Minnette, Sonia Ben Ammar, Mikey Madison, Mason Gooding, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Jack Quaid, Jenna Ortega, Melissa Barrera, and Marley Shelton.
SCREAM is currently playing in theaters. Filming on the sequel is expected to start this summer.
