‘Scream 5’ Officially Wraps, Not Due Out Until Jan. 2022

It was a long time in the planning and waiting, but once production on Scream 5 (or whatever the official title eventually will be) began in September, the process really took off…and now Ghostface and the gang are in the can.

Production this week officially wrapped on the latest episode in the storied Scream franchise, as reported by comingsoon.net, and now the next wait begins. Scream 5 is not slated to hit theaters for more than year–Jan. 14, 2022, to be exact.

The filming in Wilmington, N.C.–as reported here in Horror News Network–was overseen by directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett for Spyglass Media and Paramount Pictures. The plot is still pretty much under wraps, but it has been reported that the film will deal with a woman “returning to her hometown to try to find who has been committing a series of vicious crimes.” Sign us up for the ride.

Four Scream veterans are returning for this film–including Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox and Marley Shelton–to lead the ensemble cast of Kyle Gallner, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mikey Madison, Jack Quaid, Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, Dylan Minnette and Sonia Ammar.

Scream 5–co-written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Guy Busick (Castle Rock)–is produced by Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak. Kevin Williamson–who penned the script for the original 1996 Scream (directed, of course, by the legendary Wes Craven)–will serve as executive producer, along with Chad Villella.

The fan-favorite franchise–which has (until now) run through 2011’s Scream 4–has proven to be a box office sensation, pulling in more than $600 million worldwide.
