Spyglass has snagged the rights to the Scream series and Neve Campbell is in talks to return for Radio Silence’s Scream 5. And today Matthew Lillard says he’d love to return as well.
He tells TooFab: “Yes, yes, I’m available, yes, yes! Yes, obviously. That’s like Stacey Abrams openly campaigning for the vice presidency. There’s nobody that wouldn’t want to come back and reprise a role they got to do when they were a boy and be able to do something different as a man would be exciting.”
That being said, Lillard says he “can’t imagine” he’d be back for 5.
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.

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.
