That's a wrap on Scream 5

Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group have officially announced the end of filming this morning, and have also revealed the sequel's official title, which is... Scream!

This moves away from their typical order of sequel titles - Scream 2, Scream 3, Scream 4and instead follows a recent horror trend started by Halloween (2018), likely signaling a new beginning for the beloved horror franchise. Also, considering the meta-horror nature of the films, it's quite possible that the decision to drop the number was very deliberately made as a call-back to that revamp as well as the numerous other horror remakes in the works. 

Neve Campbell will headline the ensemble cast, reprising her role as Sidney Prescott, with her franchise co-stars Courteney Cox and David Arquette set to return as Gale and Dewey Riley, respectively. Marley Shelton will also return as Deputy Judy Hicks from the last installment, while Roger L. Jackson will once again voice Ghostface. 

Newcomers to the franchise include Melissa Barrera (Vida; Dos Veces Tú), Jenna Ortega (Jane the Virgin; Iron Man 3), Jack Quaid (The BoysThe Hunger Games), Dylan Minnette (Prisoners13 Reasons Why), Mason Gooding (BooksmartLove, Victor), Mikey Madison (Once Upon a Time... In HollywoodBetter Things), Jasmin Savoy Brown (The LeftoversFor The People), Kyle Gallner (Smallville; American Sniper), and newcomer Sonia Ammar.  

Radio Silence duo Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or Not) directed the fifthquel 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 still serve as an executive producer.

I normally hate some sort of gimmicky title for a horror movie sequel, like alien resurrection or something like that. But I'll take that any day over this dumb ass trend of naming sequels to horror movies the name of the first movie.



It was stupid for Halloween and even more stupid here. I sort of understand Halloween doing it cause it was wiping away all previous sequels. But this? It's the same continuity. So calling it just "Scream' again is stupid

But it isn't scream, it's scream 5. Something tells me they're "rebooting" the slasher films haha

Scream is my favorite slasher film so I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with this one. I also need to watch Ready or Not. I’ve heard nothing but good things about it.

Just made it more difficult for them to come up with a title for 6 should they choose to do one, just keep it simple

If you didnt want to call it scream 5 you could have went with Ghostface or Scream:Return to Woodsboror, anything would have been better then just Scream.

Like how the original took aim the genre, I'm hoping this is gonna parody that it's another reboot/franchise (although I have no idea how that'll happen)

Wes Craven was a genius.

Pointless movie if you ask me. The main antagonist is just not scary anymore. I was hoping they'd use the mask from the tv show
..or a new even scarier mask !?! But sadly...it ain't happening.
