Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and Dylan Minnette in the new “Scream 5”

Scream 5 will release next year. It has been 10 years since the scream 4. Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette will return for their iconic roles. The first iconic movie was released in 1996. The movie series has a huge fan and the movie is considered a cult classic. But, the movie is titled “Scream” rather than “Scream 5”. The original legendary directorWes Craven died in 2015. Matt Bettinelli and Tyler Gillet directed the upcoming movie.

Courtney Cox appeared on “The drew Barrymore show” and talked about the upcoming movie.

“This is the fifth one, you know, it’s not Scream 5 though. This is Scream. These directors, I mean God, the directors [Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett] are just incredible. “It’s a new franchise. It’s hip, it’s scary, it’s just a new Scream, it’s not a reboot, it’s not a remake, it’s just a brand new launch. I think it’s gonna be fantastic.”

However, her interview left fans confused about the future of the franchise. Neve Campbell also revealed in an interview that she was “uncertain” about the new project.

“I definitely had a period where I was thinking it would just be too odd to do a movie without Wes [Craven, the late director] and I wasn’t certain that I would want to do that. But, I think enough time has passed. I got this really, a really respectful letter from the directors of the new one. They came to me with Scream 5, and these directors are incredibly talented.”

Scream 5 Release Date

Scream 5 is not releasing this year. Scream 5 will hit cinemas on January 14, 2022. However, Fans were expecting the movie to release during Halloween this year. But it seems like creators have decided to release the movie next year. Halloween Kills is also going to hit the cinemas on October 15, 2021.


The old cast members will return to play their roles. Tyler Gillet said this about the original cast joining the movie;

“I think we should also say that the legacy cast, these movies have been a part of their lives for a really long time. It would be easy to show up and kind of phone it in, but you can just tell they love these movies so much. And are really the beating heart of the franchise. And so to have the three of them so generously offering themselves to the movie. And in so many ways building the vibe of the movie, not only by just having told four incredible stories in this universe. By showing up, being willing to engage on a very personal level with us and with the other cast members. They created a sense of family.”

We will also see new young actors in the new movie. Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar, are going to play the new characters in the movie.

Fans are excited to see Dylan Minnette in the new movie. Minnette is known for playing “Clay” in 13 reasons why. He is also a part of a well-known band” The Wallows”.

Scream is one of my favorite movies/franchises of all time, and I honestly could not be more excited to be a part of this,” 


The official synopsis of the movie is;

“A young woman who returns to her old hometown, only to encounter horrific murder cases connected to a notorious masked serial killer.” 

However, the new characters will be linked to the previous victims of the movie franchise as well.
