The fifth installment of Paramount’s Scream franchise has arrived. The trailer was dropped, promising a new, bloody adventure with the beloved characters. Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers and David Arquette as Deputy Dewey Riley are returning for the bloodier film, along with a new cast of characters.
The trailer opens with a scene mirroring Drew Barrymore’s iconic opening to 1996’s Scream, but this time Ghostface texts newcomer Tara (Jenna Ortega) before disabling the alarm system, breaking into her house and presumably murdering her. The original characters explain to the traumatized newbies that Ghostface always targets people related to them.
Sidney is seen preparing for another bloody showdown with the killer, saying “I’ve been through this…a lot.”Dewey on the other hand asks Sidney over the phone “Do you have a gun?” To which Sidney replies, “I’m Sidney Prescott, of course I have a gun.”
The new cast members are Jack Quaid, Melissa Barrera, Dylan Minnette, Mason Gooding, Kyle Gallner, Sonia Ammar, Mikey Madison, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Reggie Conquest.
The original Scream premiered in 1996 and was directed by the late Wes Craven. The film starred Campbell as Sidney Prescott, a high schooler targeted by a masked killer named Ghostface who was obsessed with ’80s horror movies. Following its resounding box office success, Scream went on to spawn three more installments, each starring Campbell, Cox and Arquette and directed by Craven.
After Craven’s death in 2015, many were left skeptical that Scream would ever return.
Executive producer Kevin Williamson, who wrote the original Scream, also kept Craven in mind while approaching the new project. The new film’s screenplay was written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick, and it’s co-produced by Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group, with Spyglass overseeing production. Gary Barber, Cathy Konrad, Ron Lynch, Marianne
Maddalena, Peter Oillataguerre and Chad Villella are executive producing alongside Williamson.
Scream is set for release in theaters on January 14, 2022.
