SCREAM Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett Tease Sequel Plans And Possible Spinoffs (Exclusive)

Scream directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett talk to us about their hopes for the upcoming sixth instalment of the horror franchise and weigh in on potentially expanding Stab as a spinoff...

Interviews Opinion

Scream is now available for purchase on Digital, and comes loaded with plenty of killer bonus content. The terror then comes home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on April 5 (and Paramount+ on March 8), and we recently sat down for a conversation with directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett.

During our interview, we asked the filmmakers if they would be interested in expanding on those fictional Stab movies from the Scream Universe. In previous interviews, Matt and Tyler have talked about shooting a lot of Stab content there ultimately wasn't room for in the latest instalment of Scream, and it sounds like they would both be open to potentially revisiting that on streaming.

"We've joked about it a lot. We've said that it would be so fun to make Stab movies," Matt said. "To literally go make Stab movies and make a bunch of them. It would be such a fun muscle to flex and such a fun way to look at something that's already so self-referential and go even another layer into that world would be wild. We've never had a real conversation about it, but it is a great idea."
 


So, nothing is concrete is planned, but it's definitely interesting to hear that they're open to the idea. Something we do know is happening, of course, is Scream 6. Plans for that movie were confirmed shortly after this latest effort came out, while Neve Campbell let it slip in a recent interview that she's currently in early talks to reprise the role of Sidney Prescott. So, what can Matt and Tyler reveal?

"Outer space. Sorry, was that a spoiler? [Laughs]," Matt joked before Tyler added: "Ghostface in space. No, I think the thing - we can't talk too much about it - but what we can say is that what we love about Scream movies and the canon is that they take the expectation of what it is and totally flip it on its head. The movies have to, at their best, be aware of what the audience thinks is going to happen and then deliver on that in a way that's totally unexpected."

"That's the fun thing of these movies. That's what we're looking to design right now," the director continued. "How do we give people that Scream experience in a way that they're totally unprepared for? That's a really fun challenge. We hope to get to be part of it forever."

Hopefully, more will be revealed soon. Production is currently expected to begin this summer, and with the cast now being brought together, the story is clearly starting to take shape. There are a lot of places this next instalment can go after Scream, and you can read more about that right here.
