She's back!

Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Neve Campbell has officially been confirmed to reprise her iconic role as the original "Scream" queen Sidney Prescott in Spyglass Media Group and Paramount Pictures' upcoming Scream relaunch/sequel.

Following the announcement, Campbell shared the following statement to express her excitement, “After spending time speaking with Radio Silence, they have shown such love, respect and admiration for Wes Craven and all that he’s created in the Scream franchise. I am beyond excited to step back into the role of Sidney Prescott and return to Woodsboro.” 

She'll headline a cast consisting of her fellow legacy castmates Courteney Cox and David Arquette, who have both already been confirmed to return as Gale and Dewey Riley, respectively, and franchise newcomers 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.

The directors, also known as the filmmaking group Radio Silence, were equally as excited about the news. “We’re pinching ourselves! It’s hard to express how much the character Sidney Prescott shaped our love of movies and to have the chance to work with Neve is truly a dream come true. It just wouldn’t be a Scream movie without Neve and we’re so excited and honored to join her in Woodsboro.

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

I love it when a plan comes together.

hopefully Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett live up to Craven, will be the first Scream film without him

@dracula - I just call them Radio Silence. It's easier to remember.
dracula - 9/10/2020, 1:40 PM
@MUTO123 - probably a good idea, I just copied and pasted their names
Jayman627 - 9/10/2020, 1:38 PM
Don't kill her off, for some reason I see them doing that at the beginning?
IronGenesis - 9/10/2020, 1:47 PM
@Jayman627 - Don’t worry. Luke Skywalker others may live.

Jayman627 - 9/10/2020, 1:56 PM
@IronGenesis - hahahah hey don't forget Han!
IronGenesis - 9/10/2020, 2:14 PM
@Jayman627 - can you imagine though? In every Hollywood Board meeting if the topic of killing of beloved nostalgic character comes now...those executives probably reach for a tissue to wipe away the panic sweat and a bottle of tune.

@Jayman627 - I don't think they'll do it at the beginning... At least not her. Too jarring for audiences. Kind of like JLC in halloween resurrection. Do we really want to watch another 1.5 hours without Sidney!?

I do think they'll kill her off though. Just not at the beginning

Hello Sidney

Cool. You don't get many horror franchises that remain consistent with the cast.
Knightrider - 9/10/2020, 2:27 PM
I assume all the original cast get killed in opening 10mins...


They become the Killers themselves

Her and Gale are goners

Maybe Drew Barrymore's character had a twin sister. They were separated at birth. Now, that long lost twin wants revenge on Woodsboro.
AnthonyVonGeek - 9/10/2020, 3:32 PM
I hope she snaps and becomes the killer. Anyone going through what she went through would have a very fragile weak state of mind and easily snap.
ThorArms - 9/10/2020, 4:15 PM
Pretty certain she'll die in this one.
Those Ready or Not directors won't be playing around.
JHowlett - 9/10/2020, 4:39 PM
Damn it they’re gonna kill them all off aren’t they?
Rhaspodel - 9/11/2020, 8:15 PM
@JHowlett - Like Disney did to the Star Wars original trio.
