Thursday, February 3, 2022 | News


As the revival of Wes Craven’s slasher franchise nears the $70-million box-office mark, a new installment is getting underway.

Variety reports that Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media are reteaming for an untitled SCREAM follow-up, to begin shooting this summer. Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett of Radio Silence are coming back, as are screenwriters James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. No word yet on which of the latest SCREAM’s survivors will be returning, or any plot details.

“We are tremendously grateful to the fans around the world who enthusiastically received our film,” Paramount and Spyglass say in a statement. “We can’t wait for audiences to see what Radio Silence, writers Jamie & Guy and Project X have in store for our Woodsboro family.”
