Every franchise has its face: the one actor or actress that represents it all and fans adore. For the Scream franchise, that would be Neve Campbell‘s Sidney Prescott, one of the most popular final girls of all time, who has taken down each and every person to don the mantle of Ghostface. The franchise made a comeback this year and it was just recently announced will live on with a sixth Scream filmset to begin filming this summer, and it seems a familiar face could be returning.
Now, One Take News is reporting that actress Campbell, who returned for this year’s instalment, is in talks to return as Sidney Prescott once again. The previous film saw Sidney return to Woodsboro after being told by both Dewey and Gail to stay away, having finally settled down and escaped that madness that’s haunted her for years.
One Take News is also reporting that casting for the project has been in the works for some time now and announcements could be imminent. There’s been no word on if Cox will return for the next film, but with Campbell rumored to be in talks, it seems like there is a chance.
Scream 6 will be directed by Tyler Gillet and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin returning from directing the previous installment. The film will be written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. No release date for the film has been announced just yet.
