Spyglass Media and Paramount Pictures announced Wednesday that Hayden Panettiere will appear in the upcoming sixth movie, reprising her role from 2011’s Scream 4 where she played Kirby Reed, a Woodsboro High School student and horror fanatic, who ultimately survived that movie’s Ghostface killer.
Several cast members from Scream (2022) are also set to return for the sixth installment of the Scream franchise: Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding and Jenna Ortega will reprise their roles for the next movie in the Spyglass Media and Paramount Pictures franchise.
Plot details are being kept under the cloak but the companies said the new feature “continues with the four survivors of the Ghostface killings as they leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter.”
Ortega and Barrera star in the franchise as sisters Tara and Sam Carpenter, respectively. Barrera’s character is revealed to be the biological daughter of Billy Loomis, the original Scream killer played by Skeet Ulrich. Gooding and Brown play twin siblings Chad and Mindy Meeks-Martin, the nephews of Jamie Kennedy’s original Scream character Randy Meeks.
Principal photography is slated to begin in early summer, with the sixth movie set for theatrical release on March 31, 2023.
Courteney Cox has already confirmed that she’s returning for the sixth entry in the iconic slasher franchise.
Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are returning to direct the franchise’s next installment, while James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick are back on scripting duties. Vanderbilt will also serve as a producer on Scream 6 with Paul Neinstein and William Sherak. Kevin Williamson is executive producing alongside Gary Barber, Peter Oillataguerre, and Chad Villella.
