Scream 5 has completely finished production


“Scream 5” will be ready for use from January 2022.


The last cut of Scream 5 is completed. In an Instagram post on Monday night, co-directed Tyler Gillett revealed that the sequel to the popular horror franchise is picture-locked, which means the editing of the film is now fixed as it moves into other stages of post-production. The post includes a photo of Fox’s Newman Scoring Stage where the score was recorded. In a similar post, the other director of the film, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin announced that the score is also complete and shows a close-up of some notes.

The contributions offer a rare look behind the scenes of a project whose details have been carefully guarded. In addition to using multiple versions of the script to avoid potential leaks, Gilet and Bettinelli-Olpin were simultaneously working on multiple cuts of the film. This has helped prevent leaks since filming in November, but those guardrails are now falling away as the cut is frame-locked.

This isn’t the first horror film for the directing team that previously worked on Darkly Funny of 2019 Ready or Not. They clearly have a great awe of the genre as well as the work of the Scream creator Wes Cravenas Bettinelli-Olpin explained last year:

The movie has a lot to do with the current state of horror, but one of the things we talked about is that, unlike when the original started, horror was on a downward path and was no longer as popular as the people outside the mainstream were still there, but the mainstream had given up horror. We are obviously not there now. Horror is as big as anything else right now, so it’s fun to look at it from that angle, but at the same time it is scary scary to us and always will be. When something is really scary, it just becomes scary and that is our goal. And that’s something we learned from Wes Craven to Last house on the left. Nightmare on Elm Street was probably one of the first horror films any of us saw that really scared us as a kid. When it comes to things like that, I think one of our main goals is to make sure what is scary is scary, and not to try to be gentle.

The film sees the return of the franchise’s leading cast, including Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, David Arquette as Dewey Riley, and Courteney Cox as storm weather (with Roger L. Jackson again with the voice of Ghostface). Last month in an interview with Drew Barrymore (who appeared in the original Scream), Cox clarified the nature of the sequel. “It’s not a reboot, not a remake, it’s just a brand new start,” she explained. “I think it’s going to be awesome.”
