Horror fans were delighted earlier this year when news broke that the iconic slasher series Scream would be returning to the big screen with a fifth installment.
But will we see the original cast return?
The franchise’s leading lady, Neve Campbell AKA Sidney Prescott recently spoke to that possibility for the first time.
Chatting with YouTube’s Jake Hamilton, Campbell reveals that she’s been in touch with the director’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett and that conversations about the potential return of Sidney are taking place.
“They’ve come to me and we’re having conversations. It’s a little hard at the moment because of COVID to know when that’ll happen and hopefully we can see eye to eye on all the elements that have to come into place for it to happen.
I originally had been really apprehensive about doing another Scream without Wes because he was such a genius and he is the reason they are what they are but the directors have come to me with such a great appreciation for Wes’s work and they really want to honor it and that meant a lot to me.
Hopefully we’ll be able to do it.”

Spyglass Media will also be developing the upcoming Hellraiser Reboot.
There were rumbling of a fifth Scream movie shortly after Scream 4 hit theaters in 2011. But when the movie failed to truly perform at the box office, those came to a halt. And as the franchises pivoted to TV with an MTV series, director/writer Wes Craven passed away in 2015. Craven’s death seemed to dash all hopes of another Scream movie, at least until the directors of Ready or Not got involved.
