Today is March 31, 2022, which means the Scream 6 release date is now exactly one year away. Ghostface will return to the big screen on March 31, 2023, the new movie releasing in theaters just about one year, two months after the franchise returned this past January.
If you think that’s a fast turn-around, let’s not forget that Wes Craven’s Scream 2 was released in theaters *less than* one year after the first movie slashed its way into theaters!
Much the same way the pressure was on for Craven, Kevin Williamson and company in 1997 when Scream 2 was ordered up and fast-tracked, the Radio Silence team is surely feeling the pressure right now. What do they have in mind for Scream 6, you ask? Chatting with Empire Magazine, directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett recently shared some thoughts.
“This movie has to be willing to risk it all in order to subvert all of those expectations,” Gillet told Empire.
He added, “And we’re so far down the rabbit hole of Scream movies, that it’s all up for grabs at this point.” It sounds like everything is on the table… and nobody is safe.
We’ll report more on Scream 6 as we learn it. For now, it has been confirmed that Courteney Cox will be back as Gale Weathers, with other originals possibly returning as well.
Neve Campbell, perhaps? We’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything, and we indeed do expect to learn a whole lot more on the road to Scream 6‘s release date next year!
James Vanderbilt & Guy Busick are also back to write Scream 6.
Creator Kevin Williamson and the third member of Radio Silence, Chad Villella, are executive producing alongside Spyglass’ Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre.
If you haven’t yet seen it, Scream 2022 – which is technically Scream 5, of course – is now streaming on Paramount+. You can grab the film on Blu-ray and 4K beginning April 5th.
