Penned by the writers of 'Zodiac' and 'Ready or Not,' this is the first installment since the passing of Wes Craven, the franchise's creator
The iconic horror franchise is back with our favourite trio -- Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette, in a bid to honour the late director Wes Craven, who passed away in 2015.
The new installment marks the return of the popular franchise since the 2011 film “Scream 4."
Directed by “Ready or Not” duo Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the film is based on a script by James Vanderbilt (“Zodiac”) and Guy Busick (“Ready Or Not”).
The cast also includes Dylan Minnette (“13 Reasons Why”), Jack Quaid (“The Boys”), Jenna Ortega (“You”), Jasmin Savoy Brown (“The Leftovers”), and Mason Gooding (“Dear White People”) and Marley Shelton.
The original Scream, released in 1996, reignited the horror genre, with its iconic mix of dread and comedy. The franchise has been popular among horror affencianos and critics ever since.
Developed by Skyglass Media and distributed by Paramount Pictures, “Scream” will open in theaters early next year on January 14, 2022. Watch the trailer below:
