In the new film set 25 years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a terrifying new killer resurrects the Ghostface mask. As the deaths mount, Woodsboro’s new targets must seek help from the survivors of the original Ghostface attacks.
Now, only Sidney Prescott (Campbell), former sheriff Dewey Riley (Arquette), and reporter Gale Weathers (Cox) can find a way to stop the killer when everyone is a suspect. The film also stars Melissa Barrera, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, and Marley Shelton.
It was previously announced that Paramount and Spyglass have started developing a sixth Scream movie as well. Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett will again direct.
Screenwriters James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick are also returning. Production on Scream 6 is scheduled to start this summer.
Scream (2022) has grossed $137.6 million worldwide, with $79.2 million coming from North American theaters and $58.4 million from international markets.
“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.”
“We have become a big family and are eager to continue telling stories in the wonderful Scream universe,” added Project X Entertainment partners.
Scream is executive produced by Kevin Williamson, Chad Villella, Gary Barber, Peter Oillataguerre, Ron Lynch, Cathy Konrad, and Marianne Maddalena.
The film’s producers are William Sherak, Paul Neinstein, and James Vanderbilt. Scream is presented by Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group. The film is a Project X Entertainment Production and a Radio Silence film.
