SCREAM 5 Adds Another Key Piece In THE BOYS & THE HUNGER GAMES Star Jack Quaid

Following Friday's release date news, Spyglass and Paramount's upcoming Scream reboot/sequel has added another key piece to its ensemble in the form of The Boys and The Hunger Games star Jack Quaid!

After setting a 2022 release date over the weekend, Paramount Pictures has resumed casting for their upcoming Scream reboot/sequel, and has now added another key piece to its ensemble in Jack Quaid (The Boys; The Hunger Games). 

No word yet on whether franchise leading lady Neve Campbell will reprise her role as Sidney Prescott, but considering her two fellow legacy cast members Courteney Cox and David Arquette have both already been confirmed to return as Gale and Dewey Riley, respectively, it seems increasingly likely that we should be getting an announcement on that front relatively soon - at least before filming begins.

In addition to Quaid, new cast members include Melissa Barrera (Vida; Dos Veces Tú) and Jenna Ortega (Jane the Virgin; Iron Man 3). 

Ready or Not directors Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are set to helm the new film, with a screenplay from James Vanderbilt (Zodiac; The Amazing Spider-Man) and Guy Busick (Ready or Not; Castle Rock).

Production is slated to begin later this year in Wilmington, NC.

The first four extremely successful 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 movie.

He's fine in The Boys as the every man brought into the middle of a situation thats foreign to him. Hope to see him move past that in Season 2.

I'm excited for the new Scream movie tho. I really love the series

SCREAM will always be an classic.



The sequels are fun, but nothing touches the original.

Assuming things start to improve he can shoot the movie during the break of post filming the 3rd Season of The Boys.

Hopefully he doesn't die in the film by Ghost Face. :P

I like him. He reminds me of a young Dwight from The Office.

@ThorArms - He's in other scenes beforehand as part of a larger group hunting Katniss, I just picked that clip because it's the most significant thing he does in the movie.

He's either the new Randy or Ghostface - calling it now.

Either way, I would be over the moon if Sydney is back (please don't kill her off) and even more happy if they brought back Kirby!! Hayden's performance was the highlight of Scream 4.

Also, hot take but:

Scream 2 > Scream > Scream 4 > Scream 3

Jack Quaid seems like a custom fit for many CBM roles, from Bobby Drake to Quicksilver.

Me, I'd think outside the box and cast him as Scott Free.

Ready or Not was fun so I’m excited. I remember watching the first Scream in my grandparent’s basement with my cousins in Middle School. The last one was a good Scream movie, but not a good horror movie. Hopefully this next one is great.
