Ghostface will return to theaters in March 2023 thanks to Scream 6, which wasn’t a huge surprise given how well Scream went at the box office.
The same creative team will return to work on the upcoming Scream film. The cast has undergone one significant change, though, and it has already startled Scream aficionados.
The OG three of Sidney, Dewey, and Gale attempted to help the group of teenagers survive after a new form of Ghostface was accidentally released on them in the fifth film. Although it was a stand-alone plot, it will undoubtedly have a significant influence on the following film.
Please note that this article contains spoilers for Scream 2022. If you haven’t seen Scream, stop reading now. We’ll discuss what we might expect from Scream 6 and everything you need to know.
Scream 6 release date: When is Scream 6 out in cinemas?
It has been revealed that Scream 6 will premiere in theaters on March 31, 2023.
The sequel has been in production since June 2022, so everything appears to be on schedule for the film to arrive in theaters in March 2023.
Scream 6 cast: Who could be back for Scream 6?
The major update is that Neve Campbell will not be reprising her role as Sidney Prescott.
She said that “really” “negotiating” concerns were what ultimately determined the choice. I didn’t think the offer I was given was commensurate with the value I provide to this business and have been bringing to this franchise for 25 years, she said.
And as a woman in this industry, I believe it’s crucial for us to fight for and receive respect. I sincerely doubt that the amount I was offered would be the same if I were a man and had completed five installments of a successful movie franchise over a 25-year period.
“And I knew deep down that I couldn’t. I couldn’t enter the set while feeling undervalued and the unfairness (or lack thereof) surrounding that.”
Courteney Cox will reprise her role as Gale Weathers in the next film, along with Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega, who played sisters Sam and Tara Carpenter, respectively, in the fifth film’s key roles.
The fact that Scream 4 star Hayden Panettiere will reprise her role as Kirby Reed in the new film is another piece of good news that might lessen the impact of losing Sidney. We first saw her come back in August 2022.
As Mindy and Chad Meeks-Martin, the niece and nephew of Randy, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding also make a return from the previous film. Naturally, Roger Jackson, who performs the role of Ghostface, will return.
Tony Revolori, who starred in Spider-Man, Samara Weaving, who starred in Home and Away, Henry Czerny, Dermot Mulroney, Jack Champion, Josh Segarra, Liana Liberato, and Devyn Nekoda are all new additions to Scream 6.
None of them are currently playing anyone that we are aware of.
Billy Loomis, played by Skeet Ulrich, made a surprise appearance in the sixth film and revealed himself to be Sam’s father. Even though he only appears in her hallucinations and is therefore essentially dead, comparable appearances in the upcoming film are still possible.
After a brief cameo in the 2020 film Scream, which also featured voice cameos from Drew Barrymore, Matthew Lillard, and Jamie Kennedy, we might see Heather Matarazzo reprise her role as Martha Meeks. but not as their fictional characters Casey, Stu, and Randy, who in the Scream universe must all be deceased.
Nevertheless, for plot-related reasons, some characters from the 2020 film Scream, such as David Arquette’s Dewey Riley, who was cruelly slain by Ghostface in the fifth film, are not returning for Scream 6.
Scream 6 plot: What could Scream 6 be about?
The new Scream doesn’t really set itself up for a sequel in any way, as was previously said, and neither did the prior films.
The new film does seem to establish Sam and Tara Carpenter as the series’ new protagonists, particularly given Sam’s relationship to the first film as Billy’s daughter.
This would inevitably make her a target, much like Sidney was in the first three films. We’d like to think that any subsequent movies will maintain this strategy because Scream thankfully avoided the easy twist to turn Sam into a murderer like her father.
“We took the stance that she had already come to terms with Billy being a part of her. Despite the fact that he will always be a part of her, she must now carry that forward, “co-director Matt Bettinelli-Olpin remarked to the fandom.
“We had a cut of the film where she was still medicating herself at the end, but we all decided it was better to not have her do that and make it actually feel like she’s not just back where she started medicating away her past and that she’s actually able now to accept Billy as a part of who she is,” one of the producers said.
Currently, the only plot-related certainty is that any upcoming film would poke fun at contemporary horror and film-making fads. We’ll have to wait and see what Scream targets next after taking on toxic fanbase and “requels.”
Additionally, we’re unsure of how they’ll deal with Sidney’s absence, which will undoubtedly come up. However, it would be shocking if they killed Sidney off-screen; so, anticipate a one-liner about her choosing not to participate this time.
Scream 6 trailer: Any Scream 6 footage yet?
Even though Scream 6 is now in production, it won’t be long until we see the first trailer, as the previous film’s trailer wasn’t released until three months before the film’s premiere.
The movie Scream 6 will hit theaters on March 31, 2023.
