What makes Scream so extraordinary in the genre. Is that the films have managed to maintain the same actors and characters over the twenty-five-year history of the franchise. The newest installment, simply titled Scream, is no exception.

Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette are all reprising the beloved roles that have made the franchise so extraordinary. With the unfortunate passing of iconic horror director Wes Craven back in 2015. This will be the first Scream movie without the legendary director at the helm. Instead, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, and Chad Villella. The filmmaking trio collectively known as Radio Silence are heading the project.

HelloSidney.Com recently talked with the young filmmakers in an exclusive interview.

The SCREAM legacy was the focus during the second part of my conversation with Radio Silence, the innovative and talented, collective filmmaking unit formed by producer Chad Villella and directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.

With all the SCREAM movies, legacy is very front and center. And they all build so successfully on one another while also being totally original. And that was something that, from the start, we knew was going to be essential in this work and that was a love letter to all the movies and, of course, to Wes. But also, was going to take some of its own unique risks”, says Gillet.

One of those risks was losing the numeral near the title. According to Matt, their mission was to make “A standalone good movie “.

But, how could it be possible to merge legacy and a fresh new start?

“A lot of it came from the script, where the entry point is accessible to everybody. This isn’t a movie that you need to have seen 27 other movies to understand […] But, your experience will be extremely heightened the more knowledge you have of those previous four “, he explains, and then promises: “We have a ton of easter eggs “.

Scream will be released in theaters on January 14, 2022.
