Scream 6 Officially Underway!
Whilst Scream 5 was never made with a brand new franchise, according to screen writer James Vanderbilt, but that has not stopped Paramount and Spyglass Entertainment from order up another slice of the slasher filled pie. After the huge success of the latest chapter of Scream, with a box office haul of $120.3 million against a $24 million production cost, it is not hard to see why the production companies want more.
Scream returned to our screens this year after an 11 year gap, and injected brand new characters into the mix.
“Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past.”
According to BD, the film may even kick off as early as this June, with Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett returning to direct. Whilst there are not any major plot points or hints of what is next, there is clearly a large scope of directions to chooses from. No spoilers here, but Scraem 5 has left the plot wide open with different options.
Spyglass and Paramount said in a statement:
“We are tremendously grateful to the fans around the world who enthusiastically received our film. We can’t wait for audiences to see what Radio Silence, writers Jamie & Guy and Project X have in store for our Woodsboro family!”

It would be easy to think that a large part of the day, for our favorite horror villains, is spent on killing scantily clad teens in increasingly creative ways. But my lovely horror buddies, you would be wrong, as the actually killing part is only a minute percentage...
