Twenty-five years after Ghostface first called Casey on that chilly fall night, Scream is back!

The slasher franchise returns to theaters with a new film chronicling the next chapter in Woodsboro’s deadly story. If its title is any indication – like the original movie, this new installment is simply called Scream the movie aims to relaunch the series, while still serving as a sequel to 2011’s Scream 4.

Stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox, Marley Shelton and Roger L. Jackson reprise their roles from the original trilogy, alongside Scream newcomers Melissa Barrera, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid… and a brand new killer! 

Scream fans will know the upcoming film is the first in the franchise not to be directed by the late Wes Craven, who died in 2015.  This installment in the horror franchise was co-directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. The script was written by Guy Busick alongside James Vanderbilt, who penned David Fincher’s 2007 Zodiac. Kevin Williamson, who originally brought us Scream in 1996, serves as an executive producer this time around.
