The franchise starred Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette.
The brand new movie would observe 2011's Scream four and, in keeping with Bloody Disgusting, Spyglass Media is creating the subsequent movie within the collection - even after the passing of creator Wes Craven.
The original film was directed by Wes Craven from a screenplay written by Kevin Williamson. The legal rights to the franchise-which practically solitary-footedly kick off a very lucrative breed of self-informed, meta-major horror films for Dimension Movies in the mid-'90s-have just been obtained by Spyglass Media Team, which also not long ago introduced its intention to reboot the Hellraiser movies with David S. Goyer. The show suffered from low viewing figures and moved to VH1 ahead of the third series earlier this year. (The third season of the Scream show, which Craven and Williamson were not involved in, premiered last summer.) The original Scream arrived at a ideal time in pop culture, with the first wave of slasher films having gotten bogged down in self-parody.
Neve, 46, who played Sidney Prescott in the films, previously admitted that she couldn't imagine the franchise continuing without Craven.
She said back in 2018 about working without Wes: "Well, ya know, I think it would be challenging". But you know, Wes was the heart of the thing.
The concept was first created by writer Kevin Williamson - under the original title Scary Movie - and his script was picked up by Miramax. "I think it would be hard to work with another director". Why, you ask? Because I love Scream!
I hope, for Craven's sake, that they opt to keep it in the same universe and make it a genuinely good continuation of the Scream mythos. It would be like a tribute nearly. I love everyone involved in it. Neve (Campbell) is such an anchor, and so incredible as an actress.
