Franchise Scream will be enriched with a fifth part, more than ten years after the last episode to date, Scream 4, released in 2011. It will be the first film in the saga without Wes Craven, who died in August 2015. Announced in theaters for January 12, 2022, it is simply titled Scream, like the first episode released in 1996 (and not Scream 5, a way according to the film crew to mark a new beginning and hook the younger generation). Paramount shared a chilling first trailer on Tuesday, October 12.
The trailer immediately winks at the franchise’s most loyal, re-enacting the agonizing and terrible opening scene of the first. Scream, in what appears to be the same iconic house.
“It’s always someone you know”, meanwhile claims the poster also unveiled Tuesday on social networks. The realization was entrusted to Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. The new film, which celebrates the 25th anniversary of the saga, is to pay tribute to Wes Craven. It also marks the return of the original creator and screenwriter of Scream, Kevin Williamson, this time in production.
