Scream co-creator and screenwriter Kevin Williamson has posted on his Twitter account that they’ve completed filming on Scream 5 including an image of himself with franchise stars Neve Campbell and Courtney Cox.
Scream 5 is going to be a soft-reboot as we’ll see the return of main characters that will usher-in a new generation for the franchise, hopefully, that they’ll be making it a tradition to make a film every couple of years.
New additions to the cast include Jack Quaid, Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Dylan Minnette, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Kyle Gallner, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Marley Shelton, and Mikey Madison.
Ready or Not’s Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are directing from a script penned by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick.
Filming had been taking place in North Carolina and notoriously had multiple positive COVID-19 tests on set without pausing production.
The next installment is set to be released on January 14th, 2022.
