UPDATE: Neve Campbell has now confirmed that she won’t be returning for the next entry. In a new piece by Deadline, she offered a statement in regards to why she’ snot returning for Scream 6, which has some curious implications but confirms it was a “difficult decision to move on.”
As a woman I have had to work extremely hard in my career to establish my value, especially when it comes to Scream. I felt the offer that was presented to me did not equate to the value I have brought to the franchise.
The Scream franchise burst back onto the scene this year as the fifth installment in the franchise returned to theaters. The newest film brought in a new gang of characters as a new Ghostface returned to Woodsboro, bringing Gale Weathers, Sidney Prescott, and Dewey back into the fold.
It seems only one franchise favorite may be making their return for the upcoming sixth film in the franchise as Neve Campbell is rumored to be sitting this one out. Bloody Disgusting is reporting that they’ve been hearing similar rumblings that Campbell is not returning, as the actress was reportedly telling fans at conventions that she will not be returning for the next film.
It’s not officially confirmed that she’s definitely not returning but her absence would fit where the story last set off. Yet, in the world of horror, it does seem like no one can truly count out anyone who’s been involved with Ghostface to truly go away. Well, except if they are on the other end of his knife.
