SCREAM Film Ended Production, Images, and Franchise Creator Calls Movie Nostalgic


The new and upcoming fifth Scream movie, which is being called just Scream, has ended production! Franchise creator and writer Kevin Williamson made the announcement on Twitter and released some photos from the set along with the logo for the title. He shared the following message:

That’s a wrap on Scream, which I’m excited to announce is the official title of the next film! Nearly 25 years ago, when I wrote Scream and Wes Craven brought it to life, I could not have imagined the lasting impact it would have on you, the fans.

I’m excited for you to return to Woodsboro and get really scared again. I believe Wes would’ve been so proud of the film that Matt and Tyler are making. I’m thrilled to be reunited with Neve, Courteney, David and Marley, and to be working alongside a new filmmaking team and incredible cast of newcomers that have come together to continue Wes’s legacy with the upcoming relaunch of the franchise that I hold so dear to my heart. See you in theatres January 2022.

Williamson also participated in a virtual panel recently to raise money for a charity. He gave advice on how to receive a new Scream movie, saying:

“No deconstruction. No self-awareness. Just do the opposite of what we did. I do worry that the franchise kind of wears itself out with all the meta and the deconstruction and there’s only so many times you can it. So many people have since then done horror films like it, or in the vein of. So you kind of worry that it’s run its course.”

He also said:

“What I love about the new Scream is that it does take a fresh approach. It’s this beautiful sort of fresh new movie, but it also has this nostalgic factor that runs through it. That to me was a perfect blend of how to do the next Scream. So that was what I was most excited about.”

All the core cast of the franchise are coming back to reprise their roles including Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescot, David Arquette as Dewy Riley, and Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers. They are also joined by new cast members Jack Quaid and Melissa Barrera.

All we know about the story is “it will follow a woman returning to her hometown to try to find out who has been committing a series of vicious crimes.”

Scream will be released in theaters on January 14, 2022.
