This news comes to us from the official Scream social media, sharing the news to the public that Neve Campbell would indeed be returning for another entry in the beloved slasher property. She’ll be joining OG stars David Arquette and Courteney Cox who are back playing Dewey and Gale respectively. Scream 5‘s directors have also been bringing in newcomers for the next sequel, the first since Wes Craven’s death.
News of Neve Campbell’s involvement in Scream 5 should delight the many fans out there, and lend some credibility to the developing sequel. The late horror legend Wes Craven helmed the previous four installments, so there are sure to be some naysayers woud there. But Campbell has already praised Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s work on the project, and now the trio of original stars are all committed to appear. Ready or Not had the same mixture of comedy and horror that Scream is known for, so hardcore fans of the genre may be intrigued to see what they’ll do with Craven’s franchise.
