‘Scream 5’ Might Be Happening With Neve Campbell
The Scream saga could be continuing, with Sidney Prescott herself. Neve Cambell has confirmed that she is in talks to return to the franchise.
Campbell did a recent interview with Rotten Tomatoes and shared that she’s in discussions about a new film. “We’re having conversations – I have been approached about it. The timing’s a bit challenging because of COVID. You know, we only started the conversation maybe a month and a half ago, so it’s going to take some time to figure out how it’s all going to work out…. We’re negotiating, so we’ll see.”
She also added, “I’m so grateful for these films… I love Sidney Prescott. It’s always fun for me to step back in her shoes, and it’s always fun for me to see the cast come back and make one of these films again and try to make another good one.”
Rotten Tomatoes also explains that Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the duo behind the 2019 thriller Ready or Not, will produce this upcoming project. Wes Craven directed the original Scream films, but he passed away in 2015.
