Four more Ghostface survivors sign up to face masked maniac again Scream 6. This January Scream, just called a restart of the iconic slasher saga, couldn’t be a big hit as it impressed fans and critics and earned big money in rentals. Not surprisingly, Paramount and Spyglass Media are moving forward with the sequel now called Scream 6.
Neve Campbell and Courtney Cox already marked what they will return as a stronghold of the Sidney Prescott and Gail Weathers franchise, and it has now been confirmed that they will be joined by the next generation of Woodsbar residents we have just met Scream ’22. Through The Hollywood ReporterMelissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Jasmine Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding have struck a deal to reprise their roles.
New Scream saw Barrera move on from Campbell as the last last girl in the series Sam Carpenter, which eventually unfolded as the secret love of the original killer Billy Loomis. Ortega played her sister Tara. Brown and Gooding, meanwhile, portrayed another pair of siblings with hereditary ties – Mindy and Chad Mix-Martin, niece and nephew of Randy Mix.
Little is known about which direction the sixth record will go, but the one-sentence logline promises that it “continues with the four survivors of the Ghostface killings as they leave Woodsbar and begin a new chapter.” In other words, it sounds like Scream 6 will act as a mirror Scream 2which also shifted the action beyond Woodsbar.
All key creatives also returned aboard the new film, and directors Matt Bettinelli-Alpin and Tyler Gillett again replaced Wes Craven, and James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick returned to writing the screenplay. Filming is set to take place this summer ahead Scream 6 March 31, 2023
