“The Scream saga continues with the four survivors of the Ghostface killings as they leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter,” a description for the new film reads.

Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett – who directed the previous film – will be directing the new film, from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick.

Campbell had said she had reservations about making a new film in the franchise after the death of Wes Craven.

“I definitely had a period where I was thinking it would just be too odd to do a movie without Wes, and I wasn’t certain that I would want to do that,” Campbell told The Hollywood Reporter.

“But, I think enough time has passed. I got this really, really respectful letter from the directors [Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett] of the new one.”

In a five-star review of Scream 5, NME wrote: “Scream 5 doesn’t just work. Isn’t just brilliant. It’s perhaps the start of the most glorious period of the franchise to date.”

The release date for the new Scream film has been set for March 31, 2023.
