For the first time in ten years there is a new one Scream Film is coming to the cinemas. And for the first time ever, it was not directed by horror master Wes Craven, who died in 2015 at the age of 76. The new film, however, is definitely not a reboot that obliterates the history of the franchise that Craven creates with writer Kevin Williamson; the new Scream is the fifth film in the franchise and stars recurring actors Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette as Ghostface survivors Sidney, Gale and Dewey.
While Craven passed away before the film’s development and production began, the filmmakers want to make it very clear that they were trying to honor him with their new film – the new one, in fact Scream is dedicated to Craven’s memory. That’s what Williamson says in a new featurette about the film and what Craven’s work meant to Campbell, Cox and Arquette then and now. Check it out below:
Here is the official synopsis of the film:
25 years after a series of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has put on the Ghostface mask and begins it with a group of teenagers in an attempt to revive secrets from the city’s deadly past. Neve Campbell (“Sidney Prescott”), Courteney Cox (“Gale Weathers”) and David Arquette (“Dewey Riley”) return to their iconic roles in Scream alongside Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Sonia Ammar.
Scream is expected to hit theaters on January 14, 2022.
