Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson’s Scream was one of the biggest horror movies of the 1990s, and it spawned 3 sequels. After a decade away, the series is set to return in 2022. Production on the fifth movie has now wrapped and the title has been confirmed.
While the first three sequels were given simple numerical titles, this latest movie will once again be named Scream. While this does seem a bit confusing, given the movie is a sequel with many of the original cast returning, it follows the pattern set by 2018’s hugely popular sequel/reboot Halloween, as well as the upcoming Candyman.
The news was confirmed on twitter by Williamson, where he paid tribute to Craven, who died in 2015. He also praised new directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, as well as returning cast members Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, and Marley Shelton.
