Kevin Williamson Promises Fresh Yet Nostalgic SCREAM 5 Will Make Wes Craven Proud

Original Scream screenwriter Kevin Williamson serves as executive producer on Radio Silence’s Scream 5. And today Williamson praised the upcoming sequel.

He says: “What I love about the new Scream is that it does take a fresh approach. It’s this beautiful sort of fresh new movie, but it also has this nostalgic factor that runs through it. That to me was a perfect blend of how to do the next Scream.”

He adds: “I’m blown away by the directors, and I was really nervous because nobody is Wes Craven. I was really hesitant to even jump on board and be a part of it, and boy am I glad I did because I think it’s going to make Wes proud.”

Sounds good to me!

Neve Campbell will return as Sydney Prescott with franchise favorites such as Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Marley Shelton, along with series newcomers such as Jack Quaid, Melissa Barrera, Dylan Minnette, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sonia Ammar, Mikey Madison, and Jenna Ortega.

Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or Not) direct from a script by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) and Guy Busick (Castle Rock). Kevin Williamson and Chad Villella, are executive producing with Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein, and William Sherak producing. Filming is underway on the flick in North Carolina as we speak.
