Scream 5 wraps and gets official title

November 19th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Well, Scream 5 has wrapped filming and we know exactly what it’ll be called too!

The fifth movie is called… Scream – although I’d bet it’ll be 5CREAM – and the creator of the franchise Kevin Williamson, who also wrote the first, second and fourth installments, has taken to social media to call an wrap on filming.

“That’s a wrap on Scream, which I’m excited to announce is the official title of the next film!,” he wrote.

“Nearly 25 years ago, when I wrote Scream and Wes Craven brought it to life, I could not have imagined the lasting impact it would have on you, the fans. I’m excited for you to return to Woodsboro and get really scared again.

“I believe Wes would’ve been so proud of the film that Matt and Tyler are making. I’m thrilled to be reunited with Neve, Courteney, David and Marley, and to be working alongside a new filmmaking team and incredible cast of newcomers that have come together to continue Wes’s legacy with the upcoming relaunch of the franchise that I hold so dear to my heart. See you in theatres January 2022”

I’m really excited for this instalment as I’m a big fan of the franchise as well as Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett’s Ready of Not, so it’ll be fun to see what they do with the reigns… especially since the core cast are all back.

Are you excited for the return of Ghostface? Let me know…

Starring: Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Sonia Ammar, Jasmin Savoy Brown with Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
