The cast of Scream 6 (unofficial title) becomes even larger, despite the filming has begun some time ago: Bloody Disgusting reveals that Samara Weaving and Tony Revolori will have a role in the film.
Samara Weaving made herself known with The Babysitter and Three Manifestos in Ebbing, Missouri , but her consecration came with Till Death Do Us Part , directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett . The two directors also wanted to cast her in the previous Scream , but it was not possible due to agenda conflicts. Weaving is also known for Ash vs. Evil Dead, Monster Trucks, Guns Akimbo, Hollywood, Bill & Ted Face the Music, SMILF, Picnic at Hanging Rock, Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins and Nine Perfect Strangers .
Tony Revolori instead revealed himself with Grand Budapest Hotel , but obviously most of the audience identifies him with Flash Thompson, a role he played in the three Spider-Man of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He also appeared in Dope: Madness and Ransom, The Fifth Wave, Son of Zorn, Servant and other movies and TV series. He will return to work with Wes Anderson in Asteroid City .
The first logline says that the story “will continue with the four survivors of the Ghostface murders leaving Woodsboro behind and starting a new chapter in their lives . ” The latest rumors claim that the sequel will take place in New York City: if confirmed, it would be a big change for the saga. So far, the only chapters set beyond the Woodsboro borders have been the second (at Windsor College in Ohio) and the third (in Hollywood).
Processing is underway in Canada, while the release is expected on March 31, 2023 . We will keep you posted.
Cast includes Courteney Cox ( Gale Weathers ), Melissa Barrera ( Sam Carpenter , Jenna Ortega ( Tara Carpenter ), Mason Gooding ( Chad Meeks-Martin ), Jasmin Savoy Brown ( Mindy Meeks-Martin ), Hayden Panettiere (Kirby Reed) , Dermot Mulroney , Jack Champion , Liana Liberato , Devyn Nekoda , Josh Segarra , Henry Czerny , Samara Weaving and Tony Revolori .
The script is again the work of James Vanderbilt ( Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man ) and Guy Busick ( Till Death Do Us Part, Castle Rock ).
Scream in cinema and on TV
The saga so far has five cinematic chapters: the first four were directed by Wes Craven , while the scripts are almost all by Kevin Williamson (the creator of Dawson’s Creek ), apart from the third film, written by Ehren Kruger instead . The fifth chapter was instead directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett .
The franchise moved to the small screen in 2015, in an MTV series that lasted two seasons. A third season – actually unrelated to the previous two – aired in 2019 on VH1.
