Spyglass Media’s Scream revival has been quite the success and it looks like Paramount doesn’t want to waste any time, as they have now given the film a March 31st, 2023 release. The reboot took in $140M at the global box office, which is quite impressive with the current conditions and given how long it’s been since the film’s release. Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are once again attached with James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick writing the screenplay for the remake sequel.
That’s not all, as it looks like the upcoming film will also see the return of Courteney Cox in the sixth entry of the franchise. It’s currently eyeing a production start in Canada at some point in June, which would put it on track to hit its 2023 release.
I got the script yesterday. And I haven’t read it yet. I just got it, and I’m so used to getting, you know, Shining Vale scripts, which are 26 pages, and I’m, ‘Whoah, I’ve got to read a script.’ I’m excited to read it. don’t know if I’m supposed to say anything. Let me tell you the killer.Courteney Cox
The sixth entry was quickly greenlit after the success of the remake over MLK weekend, and we’re seeing another popular slasher franchise make a grand return. While reception to Netflix’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre was mixed, the Halloween sequel series has been quite popular with it spinning out into two more sequels. With those titles having some fun with the title, here’s hoping the next Scream entry is called “Scream Again” or “Scream Some More.” So, maybe we’ll see other slasher icons return in the near future.
