After weeks of wondering will she or not, its been officially confirmed tonight that Neve Campbell will return to her iconic role as Sydney Prescott for the upcoming Scream 5 sequel.
Having played the heroine of the franchise for the last four films, Neve in her statement admitted she was excited to be back.
“After spending time speaking with Radio Silence, they have shown such love, respect and admiration for Wes Craven and all that he’s created in the ‘Scream’ franchise,” Campbell said “I am beyond excited to step back into the role of Sidney Prescott and return to Woodsboro.”
Radio Silence were also thrilled to have the lead star back by saying,
“We’re pinching ourselves!” Radio Silence said in a statement. “It’s hard to express how much the character Sidney Prescott shaped our love of movies and to have the chance to work with Neve is truly a dream come true. It just wouldn’t be a ‘Scream’ movie without Neve and we’re so excited and honoured to join her in Woodsboro.”
Campbell is the last of the original cast to agree to return to the franchise after both David Arquette (Dewey) and Courteney Cox (Gale Weathers) confirmed not long back.
The film is set for a January 14th 2022 release.
