new scream movie david arquette

The new Scream movie – which is either Scream 5 or a Scream reboot, depending on who you ask – is bringing back David Arquette. Arquette will once again play Dewey Riley, the local cop who found himself stabbed over and over again in the franchise – but lived to tell the tale. The news of Arquette’s return comes on the heels of star Neve Campbell confirming she’s had discussions about returning as well. Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the team behind Ready or Not, are directing a script from James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick.

neve campbell in scream 5

It would be weird to have a Scream sequel without Neve Campbell, and thankfully, the makers of Scream 5 realize that. Campbell has revealed she’s had “conversations” about returning for the latest Scream movie, which is in the hands of Ready or Not filmmakers Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. And while Campbell has reservations about doing a Scream movie without Wes Craven, she’s not entirely against the idea.

scream season 3 trailer

Remember Scream? No, I don’t mean the movie. I mean the TV spin-off series that aired on MTV. The series had its moments, but after two seasons, it seemed like any real enthusiasm for the show had evaporated. Despite all this, a third season was announced back in 2016…and then nothing happened. Until now. The series has been rebooted as Scream: Resurrection – and it’s found a new home. Instead of airing on MTV as originally planned, the new season will debut on VH1. Watch the Scream season 3 trailer below.

Blumhouse had smashing success with their sequel/reboot to Halloween, and while they still don’t have the rights to a sequel yet, they’re certainly mulling the idea. But what about other horror franchises? Could Jason Blum and company reboot more fright flicks? That’s the dream (or should I say nightmare?).

Nothing is even close to official yet, but that could change.
