Looks like the world just can’t enough of Ghostface!



Neve Campbell, who’s played the iconic Sidney Prescott since 1996, dished on the possibility of Scream 5, “We’re having conversations. I have been approached about it.  The timing’s a bit challenging because of COVID.  You know, we only started the conversation maybe a month and a half ago, so it’s going to take some time to figure out how it’s all going to work out. We’re negotiating, so we’ll see.”




As Neve says, “The directors attached to the film, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, reached out to me with a very touching letter about [late former director] Wes Craven and how he was such an inspiration to them and how they really want to honor him.  That meant a great, great deal to me.  So, we’ll see. Hopefully, we can all see eye to eye on the project and find a way to make it.”




Neve adds, “I’m so grateful for these films. I love Sidney Prescott. It’s always been fun for me to step back in her shoes, and it’s always fun for me to see the cast come back and make one of these films again and try to make another good one.”  Originally directed by Wes Craven, the Scream franchise stars David Arquette and Courteney Cox, with Drew Barrymore, Skeet Ulrich and Rose McGowan starring in the first film.

While talking with Stephen Colbert back in July of 2018, she explained that following the success of Scream, she ‘needed a minute,’ “In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming.  I just wasn’t interested in the scripts and I was feeling a bit unhappy with the things that were coming to me and I was feeling a little bored of the whole thing and I thought, ‘I want a change.’  I literally did not get bothered once.  People would ask me what I did for a living. I’d say, ‘I act,’ and they’d say, ‘Oh, OK.’ It was so lovely.”
