Recently, we learned Spyglass Media had acquired the rights to the Scream franchise. And today we hear series star Neve Campbell is in talks to return for Radio Silence’s Scream 5.
Campbell says: “They’ve come to me and we’re having conversations. It’s a little hard at the moment because of [the situation] to know when that’ll happen and hopefully, we can see eye to eye on all the elements that have to come into place for it to happen. I originally had been really apprehensive about doing another Scream without Wes because he was such a genius and he is the reason they are what they are but the directors have come to me with such a great appreciation for Wes’s work and they really want to honor it and that meant a lot to me.”
The video has since been removed.

The last film in the series, Scream 4, began many years after the Ghostface Killer cut a deadly path through the town of Woodsboro. In order to get over the trauma of those horrific events, Sidney Prescott has written a self-help book. She returns to Woodsboro for her book tour and reconnects with old friends Gale Weathers and Sheriff Dewey. However, Sidney’s arrival also sparks the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney and everyone she loves in danger.
Rated R for strong bloody violence, language, and some teen drinking, it sports a 60% on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: The franchise is showing its age, but Scream 4 is undeniably an improvement over its predecessor, with just enough meta-humor and clever kills.
