Surprise, Sidney! Neve Campbell Confirms She's In Talks For 'Scream 5'
So, 'The Exorcist' was on and it got me thinking of you. Thought I would pass a little news along. A while back we had confirmation that a new 'Scream' film was in the works and then the great news that Radio Silence, the team behind 'Ready or Not', would be directing.
However, until now we've had no official casting news on whether or not any original characters would be returning, including series final girl Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott.
In a recent interview with youtube channel Jake's Takes hosted by Jake Hamilton, Neve Campbell confirmed she's at least in talks for the project:
"They've come to me and we're having conversations. It's a little hard at the moment because of Covid to know when that will happen and hopefully we can see eye to eye on all the elements that have to come into place for it to happen. I originally had been really apprehensive about doing another 'Scream' without Wes (Craven) because he was such a genius and he is the reason they were (what they were) but the directors have come to me with such an great appreciation for Wes' work and they really want to honor it and that meant a lot to me and hopefully we'll be able to do it".
So it's not official, but it totally sounds like there's a good chance it's going to happen. What's more important is the clues this gives us to the storyline going forward. It's definitely sounding like a sequel rather than a remake or reboot. Then again, it is the super meta 'Scream' franchise and anything could happen. EVERYONE'S A SUSPECT!
