Scream 5 Might Happen, Says Neve Campbell

Scream 5 is very close to a reality! Yesterday, Neve Campbell gave fans an update on her involvement. She didn’t want to do anymore with the fifth Scream film currently in development with original screenwriter Kevin Williamson.  The actress was initially apprehensive to reprise her role as author and crisis counselor Sidney Prescott in the horror series due to the 2015 death of the creator Wes Craven.  “He was such a genius and he is the reason the [Scream movies] are what they are,” Neve explained to ReelBlend co-host Jake Hamilton.  “But [directing duo Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin] have come to me with such a great appreciation for Wes’ work, and they really want to honor it. That meant a lot to me. Hopefully we’ll be able to do it!”  Campbell said she’s been having conversations with the Ready or Not filmmakers but the shoot, which was scheduled for this month has been delayed due to the coronavirus.  “It’s a little hard at the moment because of COVID to know when that’ll happen,” she said during the interview.  “Hopefully, we can see eye to eye on all the elements that have to come into place for it to happen.”
