It’s going to be a bit before the ultimate slasher film revival flick hits theaters. Variety reports Scream 5 will debut in 2022!
Paramount Pictures lists the official release date as January 14, 2022. This will be MLK Jr. holiday weekend, so there’s a better chance for a box office spike. The fifth film in the franchise is already shaping up quite nicely.
Thus far, Courteney Cox and David Arquette are reprising their roles as Gale Weathers and Sheriff Dewey Riley respectively. Final girl and lead actress Neve Campbell is in talks to return as Sidney Prescott. Filming will start in Wilmington N.C. later this year.
Scream creator/director Wes Craven sadly passed away in 2015. This will be the first film without his involvement. Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett will occupy the directors chair in Craven’s absence. James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick will pen the script.
