Hey There! Thank you for reading my article. Your reviews and comments are most welcome.

Scream 5 is an upcoming franchise of an American meta-horror slasher film. There was a lot of buzz about the film, especially regarding a new cast and crew. So, we will explain every new detail that makes Scream 5 worthy of your wail.

Scream follows the story of Sidney Prescott, who is at a war against the murderers who disguise themselves as Ghostface and stalk and torment their victims. She has the support of the town deputy Dewey Riley, a reporter, and writer Gale Weathers, along with various friends, and acquaintances. The acquaintances change with every season and thus, for a prediction about Scream 5, we were expecting a change of cast. The film has won Saturn Award for Best Actress for Campbell and a Saturn Award for Best Horror Film for Scream.

The timeline of Scream 5 so far

In 2011, Wes Craven confirmed that he will work on a fifth installment of the film. After Scream 4 came, he revealed that he needed to work on the script before tending to the production. Before the release of Scream 4 in 2011, actor David Arquette also revealed that he will work in Scream 5 because “the ending definitely leaves it open.” However, in 2013, Harvey Weinstein denied a sequel due to the revenue generated by Scream 4. The film began silently since then.

Then, in 2019, Spyglass Media Group acquired the rights to make a new Scream film. In March 2020, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett took as the film’s director and announced that it was in development. In June 2020, Variety announced that Paramount Pictures will distribute the movie.

There was news of Neve Campbell and Hayden Panettiere to reprise their roles as well. Neve Campbell told Rotten Tomatoes, “We are having conversations. It’s going to take some time how it’s going to work out. We’ll see.”

What do we know about the plot of Scream 5?

The director duo, also known as Radio Silence talked about Scream 5 in a statement. It read, “We are insanely honored to have the opportunity to be a part of the cinematic world Wes and Kevin so brilliantly created together. Jamie and Guy’s amazing script does that legacy justice and we are so excited to bring the next chapter of Scream to life.”

We don’t have any concrete information about the plot but looking back at the films, we expect to see Prescott fighting off a set of killers. The cast is somewhat different. Hence, we will see a ‘Radio Silence’ arc to Scream 5.
