Do you trust Gale Weathers on this one??
The fifth SCREAM film isn't too far away. It'll hit theaters in less than a year, on January 22nd, 2022. And you better believe I'll be there day one.
But with that being said, we still don't know THAT much about it. But that's fine with me. Lately, I've been ignoring all trailers, reviews, and pre-launch praise. I like to go into a film knowing as little about it as humanly possible.
BUT, without spoiling anything, Courtney Cox has just recently praised the upcoming slasher. And it's making me even more excited than I already was!
She recently sat down and talked with another Scream alum, Drew Barrymore on The Drew Barrymore Show. And of course, they talked about Scream.
This is what Cox had to say:
"Scream, this is the fifth one. It's not Scream 5, though. This is Scream. The directors are incredible, they're making it absolutely... 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 going to be fantastic."
The fifth Scream film isn't titled Scream 5. It's just called Scream. Very much following the footsteps of the 2018 Halloween film. The film will see the the return of many of the original characters, including Gale Weathers, Officer Dewey, and the scream queen herself, Sidney Prescott.
It will be directed by the directors of Ready Or Not, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.
