Back in February, Spyglass Media Group, LLC (“Spyglass”) and Paramount Pictures gave the greenlight to move forward with the next installment of the popular horror franchise. The relaunched horror franchise had positive reviews from critics and fans alike propelling it to the #1 spot in its box office debut on January 14, 2022.
Returning are Radio Silence (Ready or Not, V/H/S) with Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett at the helm and James Vanderbilt (Murder Mystery, Zodiac,) & Guy Busick (Ready or Not, “Castle Rock,”) co-writing the screenplay. Project X Entertainment’s Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak are serving as producers (Ambulance, Bed Rest). Creator Kevin Williamson and the third member of Radio Silence, Chad Villella, are executive producing alongside Spyglass’ Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre.
Principal photography is slated to begin this Summer. Keeping with tradition, plot details are under wraps.
The latest installment earned a “Certified Fresh” score from Rotten Tomatoes and recently surpassed the $100 million global box office milestone. Directed by Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett and written by Vanderbilt & Busick from characters created by Kevin Williamson, the horror film’s cast included: Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sonia Ammar with Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell. Williamson, Villella, Barber, Oillataguerre, Ron Lynch, Cathy Konrad and Marianne Maddalena served as executive producers.
Scream is a long-running genre-busting horror franchise which generated four feature films including Scream (1996), Scream 2 (1997), Scream 3, (2000) and Scream 4 (2011), directed by famed “maestro of horror,” the late Wes Craven. Scream 1-4 went on to gross more than $600 million in worldwide box office receipts. Williamson wrote the original film as well as Scream 2 and Scream 4.
