Spyglass Media to Produce New ‘Scream’ Film

by Mark McCurley

Just in from Deadline, a fifth entry in the legendary Scream franchise is in early development by Spyglass Media.

There are no details as to who will be writing or directing for the new entry which comes after the passing of franchise creator Wes Craven in 2015.

The Scream film franchise began with the original film in 1996, followed by Scream 2 in 1997, Scream 3 in 2000 and Scream 4 in 2011. The series was based around the life and the mishaps of Sydney Prescott played by Neve Campbell, who was stalked by the fearsome Ghost Face killer who wore the same mask but always by a different person. Other regular cast members include David Arquette as police officer Dwight “Dewey” Riley and Courtney Cox as news reporter Gale Weathers.

An anthology television series based on the films, simply titled Scream: The TV Series , began in 2015 airing on MTV and currently finished its third season that moved over to VH1. After airing 29 episodes, the TV series is unrelated to the films and only follows in theme where an obsessed masked killer stalks a group of teenagers.

It is currently unknown if the new film will be a continuation of the Sydney Prescott saga or if this will be a reboot for the franchise.
