A sequel to the ‘Scream‘ franchise, ‘Scream 5’, is currently in development.
According to reports, a new ‘Scream’ movie is currently in development at Spyglass Media Group. As the film is still in early development, information regarding the movie’s cast, director, plot, or filming location has not been released.
The movie franchise was created by Wes Craven, who passed in 2015. Craven directed all four previous films, but, according to reports, fellow ‘Scream’ co-creator and writer Kevin Williamson will not be involved in the upcoming screenplay, which begs the question of how the new movie will come into fruition.
The original ‘Scream’ movie was released in 1996 and was the highest-grossing horror movie in the United States until 2018’s ‘Halloween.’ The movie centers around Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), a high school student who is targeted by a serial killer by the name of Ghostface. Prescott stars in Scream 2 but is taken over by David Arquette’s Dewey Riley and Courtney Cox’s Gale Weathers in Scream 3, and finally Emma Roberts’ Jill Roberts in Scream 4.
