Paramount Pictures has officially announced that Spyglass Media Group's upcoming Scream 5 will open in theaters on January 14, 2022, during the extended Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. 

No word yet on whether franchise leading lady Neve Campbell will reprise her role as the iconic Sidney Prescott, but considering that her two fellow legacy cast members Courteney Cox and David Arquette have both already been confirmed to reprise their roles as Gale and Dewey Riley, respectively, it seems like we should be getting an announcement on that front relatively soon

Casting is still underway, but new additions to the series 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, albeit when proper safety protocols are established.

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.

@batman001 - I was thinking the same thing, but the fall season will surely be crowded with big blockbusters and dramas that'll likely overshadow it. I think they should move it from it's January date though, that month isn't too kind to most films. I think either move it up to November or push it back to mid-late February.

I heard that the same cast was coming back! Kind of cool I guess. The first Scream movie is still great. It's still scary. I would go see this one
