I'm a huge fan of the Scream franchise and Wes Craven is one of my favourite filmmakers. The generations of fans are eager to return to Woodsboro, and see how the trio of OG heroes have continued to grow since they survived Jill Roberts' murderous plans in Scream 4. This no doubt means a lot to fans of the franchise, especially considering this will be the first movie made without the involvement of Wes Craven.

Scream 5 Scream is penned by James Vanderbilt (White House Down, Independence Day: Resurgence) and Guy Busick (Castle Rock, Ready or Not).

Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group wrapped production on "Scream 5" this week, and the film is expected to hit theaters on January 14, 2022.

It's official, the fifth instalment in the 'Scream' franchise has wrapped production and it's going to be titled "Scream".

After first being announced as a modern-day reboot, this latest Scream slowly began to look more and more like a sequel, as almost all of the original cast has returned to appear in the film, including Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers, and David Arquette as Dewey Riley.

The original four movies, featuring the iconic villain Ghostface killer, were all directed by the late Wes Craven, but after his death in 2015, it was in doubt the series would continue without him.
