SCREAM 5 Rounds Out Its Cast With Dylan Minnette, Mason Gooding & 3 More; Marley Shelton Also Set To Return

Shortly after yesterday's big Neve Campbell news, Deadline reported that Dylan Minnette (Prisoners; 13 Reasons Why), Mason Gooding (Booksmart; Love, Victor), Mikey Madison (Once Upon a Time... In HollywoodBetter Things), Jasmin Savoy Brown (The LeftoversFor The People), and Kyle Gallner (Smallville; American Sniper) have joined the cast of Spyglass Media Group and Paramount Pictures' upcoming Scream relaunch/sequel. 

Additionally, another familiar face has booked a return trip to Woodsboro, as actress Marley Shelton has closed a deal to reprise her role as Deputy Judy Hicks from Scream 4, which provides even more evidence that this fifth instalment will indeed be a direct follow-up rather than a complete revamp. 

Neve Campbell will headline the ensemble cast, reprising her iconic role as Sidney Prescott, with Courteney Cox and David Arquette, also set to return as Gale and Dewey Riley. Newcomers to the franchise include Melissa Barrera (Vida; Dos Veces Tú), Jenna Ortega (Jane the Virgin; Iron Man 3), and Jack Quaid (The Boys; The Hunger Games).

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). While franchise creator Kevin Williamson was not involved with the screenplay, he will serve as an executive producer.

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

In Scream 4, I thought this character would hide something. Perhaps an unstable mind.

@Repian - thats the idea. Scream 4 was following the tropes of then modern horror. There, the name of the game is always subverting the expectations of previous horror movies. So you have all these characters built up as if any other horror movie would make them the killer only to reveal it was literally the last one you thought it could be.

Frustrated that Sydney wouldn't give up the V, Billy Lumis stepped out on her. The result, unbeknownst to anyone, is his long lost son and our new killer, BJ, played by Kyle Gallner.

I wish they would bring back Kirby instead. Hayden was one of the best parts of Scream 4.

Calling it now, Jack Quaid is Stu's younger brother looking for revenge! The Scream franchise really has a lot of killers stemming from their families: Billy's mom, Sid's long lost brother, Sid's cousin.
