Massive news tonight, as Neve Campbell has admitted that she has had talks with the directing duo Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett to return for the fifth Scream film.
With excitement levels already high after the news that the creative team behind the awesome Ready Or Not were taking on Ghostface, finding out tonight that Campbell who has played Sidney Prescott in all four previous films, only adds to the expectations.
This is what she said:
“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. Hopefully we can see eye to eye on all of the elements that have to come into place for it to happen. I originally had been very apprehensive about doing another Scream movie without Wes because he’s such a genius and he is the reason they are what they are. But the directors who have come to me have come with such a great appreciation for Wes’ work and really want to honor it. And that meant a lot to me. Hopefully we’ll be able to do it!”
Sounds about right, as I can’t imagine a Scream film without an appearance of Sidney Prescott and I’ll go on record now and say Scre4m is still an underappreciated Slasher film!
More on Scream 5 as I get it!
