After the success of 2022’s Scream, grossing over $100 million at the domestic box office with good reviews too, like this one here from our own Joey Magidson), Paramount has officially greenlit the sixth installment in the popular horror film and TV franchise, with the same team as the last movie.
Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin will be directing, with a script written by James Vanderbilt and Gary Busick. Though it is unclear if some of the original cast members, such as Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox, will return. However, production is slated to begin this summer, with a release likely later next year.
On the sequel announcement, Spyglass and Paramount said in a statement that “We are tremendously grateful to the fans around the world who enthusiastically received our film. We can’t wait for audiences to see what Radio Silence, writers Jamie & Guy, and Project X have in store for our Woodsboro family.”
The directors also expressed that “Working with such a wonderful and talented family of creators — and in the lineage Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson so expertly built — has been the thrill of a lifetime, and we’re so excited to bring the next chapter in the Scream saga to life.”
