Scream has turned out to be one of the flagship movie series offering the fans the perfect blend of entertainment. What makes it more special is its wide array of super-talented actors and crew. However, heartbreaking news coming out is – Neve Campbell, one of the fan-favorite Scream stars, will not be returning in the upcoming installment. Here is why Neve made his decision.
Neve Campbell Walks Out Of Scream!!
Neve Campbell has indicated that she will not reprise her role as Sidney Prescott in the upcoming Scream 6.
The actress released a statement expressing her disappointment with the studio’s offer.
Neve Campbell said, “Unfortunately, I will not be directing the next Scream film.”
“As a woman, I’ve had to work extra hard in my career to prove my worth, especially when it comes to Scream, and I felt the offer I got didn’t represent the value I’ve added to the series.”
“To all my Scream fans, I adore you,” Neve Campbell wrote.”You’ve always been so immensely supportive of me, and I’ll be eternally grateful to you and these shows for all they’ve given me over the years.”
Scream 2022 earned $140 million on a $30 million budget, ushering off a good box office year for the series.
The actress returned with fellow series originals Courtney Cox as Gale Weathers and David Arquette as Dewey Riley in the sixth feature, released in January.
Melissa Barrera (Sam Carpenter), Jasmin Savoy Brown (Mindy Meeks-Martin), Mason Gooding (Chad Meeks-Martin), and Jenna Ortega (Chad Meeks-Martin) will join the cast as newcomers.
Ortega recently told Entertainment Tonight that this next installment would be the nastiest and savage ever.
“Ghostface becomes a whole lot scarier,” Ortega said. “I just finished reading a section of the screenplay, and it only gets nastier and nastier; I believe this is the most aggressive and violent Ghostface we’ve ever seen, and I think shooting it will be a lot of fun.”
When questioned about Panettiere’s reappearance, Ortega stated, “I’m not even going to try to remark on it.”
“For a long time, Neve Campbell has been one of my favorite characters in the series, so the prospect of her character returning to redeem herself is extremely thrilling.”
In the sixth installment of the long-running horror series, the characters will leave Woodsboro and its masked monster behind to begin a new chapter.
Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who helmed the horror-comedy Ready or Not, will direct again, with James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick writing the screenplay.
This series has struggled to remain current from the first issue, but it’s always been hit-or-miss. Returning to the fundamentals in both word and spirit, on the other hand, seems to have worked very well this time.
Is this a fan-made fiction, a retcon, a reboot, or a sequel? So, what precisely are we trying to express here? Whatever it is, the new ‘Scream’ is unrivaled on the big screen.
