new scream movie sequel

It certainly seems like the new Scream movie (which is the fifth film in the franchise but confusingly just called Scream again) is going to be a direct sequel to the previous four films and not a reboot. Even though the sequel angle was apparent due to returning cast members like Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette, there was always a chance that the new Scream could follow in the footsteps of 2018’s Halloween, which was both a direct sequel to the original Halloween and a reboot because it ignored all the subsequent sequels. But according to directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the new Scream movie directly connects to the previous four films.

scream 5 script

Scream revitalized the horror genre with its clever, self-aware script that was famous for featuring characters in a horror movie who understood the rules of being in a horror movie. It wasn’t exactly the first time a film had done this – Scream director Wes Craven had actually already covered this ground before in his film Wes Craven’s New Nightmare.

But it felt fresh, and hip, and gave way to a horror movie boom featuring plenty of winking, meta scripts all trying to imitate Scream. It also gave way to several Scream sequels, all of which followed the same formula. Now there’s a new Scream movie in production, Scream 5 (that’s just what everyone is calling it for now; we don’t know the actual title yet). But, curiously enough, original Scream screenwriter Kevin Williamson says that if he could offer advice for the new Scream, it would be to make the film less self-aware.

The directors of Ready or Not are set to helm Scream 5, and they almost brought their Ready or Not star along with them. Samara Weaving, who was absolute fire in that horror-comedy, has revealed she was very close to joining the Scream 5 cast but had to pass due to scheduling issues. And now I’m very, very sad.
