Ghostface has a new boss.
The Scream horror film franchise is officially continuing–no big surprise, following the success of Scream VI–but there will be a change in the director’s chair, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Christopher Landon–known for his work on the Happy Death Day series and Freaky–will helm the seventh entry in the Scream franchise, taking over from the directing duo of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.
Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett–who reportedly stepped away to concentrate on the upcoming and untitled Universal Monsters feature–will stay on as executive producers on the next film, alongside their Radio Silence partner Chad Villella.
It’s unclear at this point–considering the ongoing writers’ and actors’ strikes–who will handle the screenwriting chores or when any of the legacy cast members may sign on for the new entry.
