Scream 5 Release Date Announced

Paramount Pictures has announced a new release date for the upcoming fifth Scream movie.

The iconic Ghostface mask is featured prominently in the tweet that announced the release date, which you can see below. 

Scream 5 will see the return of legacy cast members Courteney Cox, reprising her role as Gale Weathers, and David Arquette, reprising his role as Dewey Riley.

As previously announced, franchise newcomers Jenna Ortega and Melissa Barrera will also being starring in the upcoming sequel.

Directors Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are helming the reboot from a script by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick with Project X Entertainment’s Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak producing for Spyglass.

Scream franchise architect Kevin Williamson will serve as EP.  The filmmaking group Radio Silence will direct and the third member of the Radio Silence trio, Chad Villella, will executive produce alongside Williamson.

Filming will take place in Wilmington, North Carolina.

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.

We will keep you updated on all things Scream as details are released.

So for me, it was a really fun challenge for a first time director because we had to do it independently, like the studios that were interested in really wanted me to either make it a straight up supernatural film and, you know, in the vein final destination or make it a slasher movie in the vein of Scream.
