The next chapter features the return of veterans Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Marley Shelton, and introduces newcomers Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Dylan Minnette, Mason Gooding, Kyle Gallner, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mikey Madison and Jack Quaid.
The first film in the franchise opened in 1996 and became an instant revolutionary classic that mixed elements of slasher horror with cinematic metalanguage. Directed by Wes Craven and scripted by Kevin Williamson, the plot focused on a masked serial killer known as Ghostface, who used slogans and haunting knowledge of genre productions to pursue his victims.
Together, the four iterations have grossed over $ 608 million at the global box office.
“Scream 5” will be released on Paramount Pictures in Brazil on January 13, 2022, one day before the North American premiere.
