New Scream movie: Ghostface first look image unveiled!

Last week, Ready or Not (watch it HERE) directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett took to their social media accounts to announce that the new Scream movie is now 100% complete and ready for its release date, which doesn’t arrive until January 14, 2022. They weren’t the only ones celebrating the completion of Scream. A member of the sound team also made a celebratory post on Instagram, and that post gives us our first look at Ghostface in the new movie! Complete with a “Property of Paramount” watermark across the bottom of the screen.

Here's Ghostface:

An official synopsis for the new Scream has never been released, because the project is shrouded in secrecy. Even though the title is simply Scream, we do know that this is a follow-up to the previous four Scream movies, because franchise stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette are back in the roles of Sidney Prescott, Gale Weathers, and Dewey Riley. Scream 4‘s Marley Shelton is also reprising her role of Judy Hicks.

The returning stars are joined in the cast by Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, Dylan Minnette, Jack Quaid, Mikey Madison, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Kyle Gallner, and Sonia Ammar.

Barrera’s character is named Samantha Carpenter. The actress said,

[Directors] Matt [Bettinelli-Olpin] and Tyler [Gillett] bring their freshness to it, but we’re honoring Wes [Craven]. I think it’ll make the fans happy, but also bring in a new audience to the movies, which I’m excited about.”

The screenplay for this new Scream was written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. Vanderbilt also produced the film for Project X Entertainment, alongside Paul Neinstein and William Sherak. Chad Villella and Kevin Williamson, writer of the original Scream, serve as executive producers.

While the previous films were released by Dimension, this Scream is coming to us from Paramount and Spyglass.
