Ghostface will return to theatres in March 2023, thanks to Scream 6, which wasn’t a huge surprise given how well Scream went at the box office.
The same creative team will return to work on the upcoming Scream film. The cast has undergone one significant change, and it has already startled Scream aficionados.
The OG three of Sidney, Dewey, and Gale attempted to help the group of teenagers survive after a new form of Ghostface was accidentally released on them in the fifth film. Although it was a stand-alone plot, it will undoubtedly significantly influence the following film.
To discuss what Scream 6 might look like and everything, you might expect. Please read since we need to discuss some Scream 2022 spoilers.
Scream 6 Release date
It has been revealed that Scream 6 will premiere in theatres on March 31, 2023.
The sequel has been in production since June 2022, so everything appears to be on schedule for the film to arrive in theatres in March 2023.
The cast of Scream 6
The major update is that Neve Campbell will not be reprising her role as Sidney Prescott.
She said that “really” “negotiating” concerns were what ultimately determined the choice.” I did not feel that what I was being offered equated to the value that I bring to this franchise, and have brought to this franchise, for 25 years,” she said.
“And as a woman in this business, I think it’s really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued. I honestly don’t believe that if I were a man and had done five installments of a huge blockbuster franchise over 25 years, I would be the number that would be offered to a man.
“And in my soul, I couldn’t do that. I couldn’t walk on set feeling that — feeling undervalued and feeling the unfairness, or lack of fairness, around that.”
Courteney Cox will reprise her role as Gale Weathers in the next film, along with Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega, who played sisters Sam and Tara Carpenter, respectively, in the fifth film’s key roles.
The fact that Scream 4 star Hayden Panettiere will reprise her role as Kirby Reed in the new film is another piece of good news that might lessen the impact of losing Sidney. August 2022 was when we first saw her return. As Mindy and Chad Meeks-Martin, the niece and nephew of Randy, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Mason Gooding, also return from the previous film. Naturally, Roger Jackson, who performs the role of Ghostface, will return.
Tony Revolori starred in Spider-Man, Samara Weaving, Home and Away, Henry Czerny, Dermot Mulroney, Jack Champion, Josh Segarra, Liana Liberato, and Devyn Nekoda are all new additions to Scream 6.
None of them are currently playing anyone that we are aware of.
Billy Loomis, played by Skeet Ulrich, made a surprise appearance in the sixth film and revealed himself as Sam’s father. Even though he only appears in her hallucinations and is essentially dead, comparable appearances in the upcoming film are still possible.
After a brief cameo in the 2020 film Scream, featuring voice cameos from Drew Barrymore, Matthew Lillard, and Jamie Kennedy, we might see Heather Matarazzo reprise her role as Martha Meeks. But not as their fictional characters Casey, Stu, and Randy, who in the Scream universe must all be deceased.
Nevertheless, for plot-related reasons, some characters from the 2020 film Scream, such as David Arquette’s Dewey Riley, who Ghostface cruelly slew in the fifth film, are not returning for Scream 6.
The plot of Scream 6
The new Scream doesn’t set itself up for a sequel, as was previously said, and neither did the prior films.
The new film does seem to establish Sam and Tara Carpenter as the series’ new protagonists, particularly given Sam’s relationship with the first film as Billy’s daughter.
This would inevitably make her a target, much like Sidney was in the first three films. We want to think that any subsequent movies will maintain this strategy because Scream thankfully avoided the easy twist to turn Sam into a murderer like her father.”Our approach was that she has now accepted that Billy is a part of her. And while he’s never going not to be a part of her, she has to carry that now forward,” explained co-director Matt Bettinelli-Olpin to Fandom.
“We had a cut of the movie where she was still medicating herself at the end, and we all decided it was better not to have her do that and make it feel like she’s not just back where she started medicating away her past and that she’s able now to accept Billy as a part of who she is.”
Currently, the only plot-related certainty is that any upcoming film would poke fun at contemporary horror and film-making fads. We’ll have to wait and see what Scream targets next after taking on a toxic fanbase and “requels.”
Additionally, we’re unsure how they’ll deal with Sidney’s absence, which will undoubtedly come up. However, it would be shocking if they killed Sidney off-screen. So anticipate a one-liner about her choosing not to participate this time.
Even though Scream 6 is now in production, it won’t be long until we see the first trailer. As the previous film’s trailer wasn’t released until three months before its premiere.
Will there be a Scream 6?
According to Paramount, the upcoming Scream movie will hit theatres on March 31, 2023. The shooting is scheduled to start in the summer of 2022 since the first and second Scream movies. They have the shortest time between them.
Is Scream 6 the last installment?
Ghostface returned in Scream (2022) in January along with enduring figures like Sidney Prescott. Also, a tragic loss, and a new group of adolescent victims to harass. All indications pointed to the well-known horror series beginning a new chapter in its legacy.
In Scream 6, who will commit the murders?
Ritchie Kirsch (Jack Quaid) and Mikey Madison (Amber Freeman) are revealed to be the new Ghostface killers. It is in the most recent Scream movie, acting as motivation for Hollywood to produce a more “genuine” Stab sequel.
Will Kirby Reed appear in Scream 6?
Scream 6 will build on the popularity of the reboot movie from the previous year. And Kirby Reed’s reappearance is a big part of the excitement around it.
