"Scream 5" Rumor Suggests Original Cast is Being Pursued
Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. Full Cast and Crew. Release Dates. Official Sites. Company Credits. Technical Specs. Plot Summary.Scream has always felt like the horror series that would make a big-screen comeback somehow — and it seems that it's closer than ever.
It was intended as the start of a new trilogy, although the underperformance of the movie — and the death of director Wes Craven — seemingly ruled out that possibility.Will The NEW SCREAM Movie Be Scream 5 or A Reboot?
It's now been reported that Spyglass Media Group who are also remaking Hellraiser are developing the next Scream movie which, for now, we'll call Scream 5. But will it definitely continue on the movie series? Since Scream 4there have been new Scream outings in the form of three seasons of the TV spin-off that were connected to the movies in name only. So there's no worry there that the new movie will contradict the events of the TV series.
But will Scream 5 be directly connected to the first four movies or is this the time for the slasher to have a reboot? There's always been a meta element to the franchise and at a time where reboots are prevalent in Hollywood, it could be a prime opportunity to poke fun at the reboot culture.
The problem is that Scream 4 sort of already did this — the meta element was that the new Ghostface killers were operating by the rules of a horror remake. Sure, a reboot isn't a remake, but they operate by similar rules — especially the idea of not doing what fans expect.
Without Wes Craven directing and with Scream co-creator Kevin Williamson also not set to write the script, it could well be that a new movie separate from the original series will be the best approach. But surely the appeal of a new Scream movie is the prospect of reuniting with Sidney, Gale and Dewey?
A reboot with new characters could just be any old slasher, but the nostalgia element would be stronger with the same cast coming back. Scream 4 did leave all of our heroes alive, so the door is open for their return, but it's just a question of whether Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette would want to return to those roles. Arquette has previously seemed keen for returning and reckoned that a new movie could act almost as a "tribute" to Cravenbut Campbell previously told Digital Spy that it'd be hard to do a Scream movie without Craven.
I also don't know how far we can go with that," she explained. Were they able to convince the cast to come back, though, there is another appealing meta approach they can take.
Just as they'd be able to poke fun at the reboot trend, Scream 5 could be a horror spin on what is becoming known as a 'legacyquel', the idea of bringing back classic characters to continue a franchise that had been dormant a la Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In the right hands, it could restart the Scream franchise and set it up for future instalments or even just prove to be a definitive ending to the series. Or maybe they'll go the route of one fan theory that states Randy never actually died in Scream 2 and has been the real Ghostface all along. Star Jamie Kennedy certainly approves of it. They are making a new Scream. I think this is an interesting angle.

In other words, we don't know who will be taking on Wes' directorial reigns and it's unclear if Kevin Williamson will return to write it. With that in mind, information surrounding the cast is also top secret for now.
So whether or not Neve Campbell will be back as Sidney Prescott is sadly yet to be seen. That being said, seeing as Sidney survived Scream 4, there's potential for her to be stalked by another masked serial killer in Scream 5.
Whether or not Scream 5 will be a sequel, prequel or reboot is yet to be seen. Spyglass are also yet to announce any release date for the project but we imagine it won't be long before we find out more. We shall keep you informed with any updates.
Scream 5 is officially in the works but will Neve Campbell return? By Sam Prance samprance. Trending on PopBuzz.There's been a lot of buzz surrounding the prospect of another Scream film by Spyglass Media Group, with little information about the plot — aside from their interest in making a new Scream.
Though we've all had our opinions about what Scream 5 should focus on, a new rumor suggests that the production company is eyeing the cast of the film series to make a comeback for another Ghostface encounter. After Spyglass acquired the rights to Scream and the story broke about more horror in our future, the biggest outcry from fans seemed to be following the original narrative of Sidney Prescott.
After four films and plenty of interest in more, Scream was one of the only horror franchises that hadn't taken the easy reboot route and it hasn't gone unnoticed. The films have always thrived in that self-aware meta-horror, so with news of another Scream meant we were even more hopeful it would continue down a path that had been established by the late director Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson.
A new report states that while nothing is officially decided on more labeled as rumor mill material producers of the next Scream movie are actively interested in reviving the franchise with Neve CampbellCourtney Coxand David Arquette. If true, this could mean that the response from fans has been something Spyglass is very aware of, and could potentially give us more hope for their take on the iconic horror film series. Despite the fact that this is strictly a rumorif there's any substance it would mean we are one step closer to seeing the trio reunite for one more stab at the Scream franchise.

The film opens with a young woman named Kaylee Aimme Carrero who is shown to be staying in her forest house in a forest in Woodsboro. While awaiting the arrival of her parents for dinner, she then watches a documentary on Netflix when she thinks she hears a big bang outside her house only to continue watching her documentary when a woman covered in blood Azura Skye arrives banging on the door when she is swept away into the bushes by a figure in a black costume.
Later on, while researching after watching the programme, Kaylee's power goes out and witnesses the dead body of the lady knocking at the window, being moved by a revealed to be Ghostface.
Kaylee then locks herself in when she gets a phone call who's voice appears to be near her revealing to be Ghostface who then jumps through the glass window above her.
When Kaylee runs out of the house, it is revealed she has been stabbed in the gut when Ghostface then finishes her by stabbing her in the chest while her parents find her body in the woods. In the next scene, Iris Cara Buonoa mother of two, Rosie Kerris Dorsey and Pete Dakota Goto has just moved away from Indiana to Woodsboro after her husband cheated on her where she arrives at her house and meets her Joan Cara Buono who is shown to be a cat lover and gardener wo works as a teacher when her kids call her cooky.

Later on, when school ends for the week, Mrs.When you hear the term 'scream queen" many horror veterans come to mind, but one of the most notable is none other than Scream star Neve Campbell. Campbell has portrayed the character of Sidney Prescott for four films, solidifying herself as a genuine genre icon and there will always be a desire for her to return. After the recent conversations about Scream 5 being in development with Spyglass, there was a hopeful buzz around the idea of the original cast returning for another face-off with the infamous Ghostface slasher villain.
During an appearance at Steel City Con in Monroeville, Campbell was asked about the chance of returning to Scream for the rumored fifth film and she seemed to have more optimism than the last time she spoke about the subject last year.
Campbell explained :. Is it in keeping with the last films? In the past, Campbell has seemed simultaneously interested and concerned about the future of Scream 5 since the passing of horror mastermind Wes Craven inbut this comment seems to imply that she hasn't shut the door on Scream completely. After the outcry of fans hoping to see the return of Sidney Prescott, it would be an unfortunate turn of events to create another film without the woman whose life is so involved in the origin of Scream.
For now, we'll have to wait and see if Campbell or any other cast additions are included as talks progress, but we will continue to cross our fingers for the chance to see her return to Scream yet again.

Scream opens with an extended sequence where a character played by Drew Barrymore is taunted over the phone by the killer, which ends with her brutal death. Audiences were shocked the biggest name in the cast was the first victim, establishing the danger for the rest of the characters. Scream also paid loving parody to classic horror movie tropes, with characters in the movie being aware of all the slasher cliches. The movie also spawned a number of sequels with the most recent entry, Scream 4released in Scream 4 received mixed reviews upon release, with many feeling it didn't have much to say about the genre that was fresh.
The movie was also considered something of a financial disappointment so is a Scream 5 likely to happen? Like with the previous movies, Craven and Williamson had a hard time working with The Weinstein Company on Scream 4, who required constant rewrites and re-shoots. Williamson also departed the sequel during production to focus on his series The Vampire Diaries. No plot details for either Scream 5 or 6 were ever revealed, outside of the fifth film following the survivors of part four.
In subsequent interviews following the release of Scream 4neither Craven nor Williamson sounded very enthused about the idea of another Scream.
Most hopes for Scream 5 seemed to dissipate following the announcement of the Scream TV series on MTV, with producer Bob Weinstein even stating the TV series replaced plans for Scream 5, but it looks like that may have been premature. The show followed a new cast of characters, and featured none of the actors from the movies. Scream season 3 finally aired on VH1 indespite first being confirmed way back in A fourth season seems unlikely, clearing the way for a new film. In Novemberthe long silence concerning a Scream 5 finally ended, with reports that Spyglass Media Group was developing a new Scream film.
In Marchthe project began officially moving forward, with Ready or Not directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett attached to take the helm. It's still unclear exactly what form Scream 5 will take, whether that be a total reboot of the franchise, another sequel, or something else entirely.
