“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,” Paramount and Spyglass said.
Vanderbilt and Busick added, “Is this real life? Getting to collaborate once again with our friends on the next installment of the Scream story is more than we could have hoped for.
“We are overwhelmed that we get to continue to play in the sandbox that Kevin and Wes created. It is, as Ghostface would say, an honor.”
