SCREAM Reboot Enlists READY OR NOT Directors Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett

While the film news cycle has slowed down significantly due to current events, we do have some big horror news as Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett have been tapped to direct the Scream reboot!

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Spyglass Media has tapped Ready or Not directors Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett to helm their upcoming reboot (sequel?) of Wes Craven's 1996 horror blockbuster Scream

Bettinelli-Olpin, Gillett and Chad Villela, who collectively make up the horror filmmaking group Radio Silence, will also serve as producers on the project. The film's screenwriter has not been announced.

Details on the project are currently being kept hidden behind Ghostface's mask, so it's actually unclear at the moment whether the new film will be a continuation of the franchise (i.e. Scream 5), or a complete reboot with a new cast. 

The first four hit films were all directed by horror legend Wes Craven with Kevin Williamson writing three of them, including the game-changing first installment, and starred Neve Campbell in the lead role as Sidney Prescott with Courteney Cox and David Arquette also appearing in every installment.

In lieu of a Scream 5, the series was given a small-screen reboot on MTV in 2015, but it was canceled after two seasons and later revived on VH1 where it aired its most recent - and presumably final - season last year.
