Those sound like screams of joy.
Kevin Williamson should know a thing or two about the Scream franchise–he wrote the screenplay for the original slasher, as well as for Scream 2 and Scream 4. And now, he says the latest entry–Scream VI— is “really good. It’s great.”
Williamson–during a recent chat with Syfy–revealed he has watched the new film–which hits theaters March 10–and said, “It doesn’t feel like Part 6. It feels like you’re watching this big, fresh reinvention.”
Williamson added that he watched the film “with a big smile on my face. I think it’s everything and more. And going to New York was awesome. The movie feels fresh–it feels like a new movie. I love it–it’s great. I’m really excited.”
He also had high praise for returning directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett–who are again working with screenwriters James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. “They’re amazing,” Williamson said. “They’re the perfect people to take the torch.”
Scream VI stars veterans Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Courteney Cox, Hayden Panettiere, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding–along with newcomers Dermot Mulroney, Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda, Josh Segarra and Henry Czerny.
The new film follows the survivors of the last Ghostface massacre as they head for Manhattan for a whole new series of slashes and gashes in Fun City. The subways just got a lot more dangerous.
