The Scream franchise team recently released a new photo for the upcoming fifth movie, Scream 5. Scream is a meta-horror movie franchise that consists of four slasher films, merchandise, a video game, and a TV series. Kevin Williamson created the franchise, and Wes Craven directs the four films. Some great actors, including Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Neve Campbell, are the film cast, and Roger L. Jackson has voiced the various Ghostface killers. The franchise collected a gross of $608.5 million against a budget of $118 million. And now the production is working on the fifth project of the franchise, Scream 5. Fans are waiting for the movie for quite a long time, and after almost nine years, the franchise is coming up with the fifth movie. However, audiences will miss Wes Craven’s involvement in the project. Actor, novelist, and filmmaker Craven passed away at the age of 76 in 2015, three years after the release of the fourth movie of the Scream franchise, Scream 4. Scream 4 was a welcome return of the horror movie franchise for the original screenplay writer of the team Kevin Williamson. The fourth film failed to impress its audience and did a poor business of $161.8 million against a budget of $40 million. The movie got an approval rate of 39% based on 122 reviews, with an average rating of 5.22/10. And the critical consensus of the site remarked it as “despite some interesting twists, the movie fell on its face.” Scream 4 got a mixed response from critics and viewers as well. After the disappointing performance of the last movie, fans are excited about the franchise’s upcoming project. Scream 5 is under production, and Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin direct the project. Guy Busick and James Vanderbilt are serving as writers for the film. The franchise’s original cast will be back in this one, including Courteney Cox, Neve Campbell, Marley Shelton, and David Arquette. Other than that, Jenna Ortega, Dylan Minnette, Melissa Barrera, Jack Quaid, Kyle Gallner, Mikey Madison, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ben Ammar are some actors who joined the franchise in the fifth project. The project has not revealed much about the project for a long time except that the movie is under production since September. Still, fans are excited knowing that the film is on its way. Now the team has officially released new pictures on the official handle of Scream. The image comes out just before Halloween and teases its fans. It is a photo of a Jack-o-lantern, and the killer’s favorite knife is stuck on it. The pumpkin sitting on a chair appeared to be of some actors’ or director’s seat on the set. And the post is captioned as “Giving the (emoji of the knife) a little test. #HappyHalloween (emoji of pumpkin).” The fifth movie plot, Scream 5, follows a young woman as she returns to her hometown and encounters a horrific murder case to a serial killer. After the release of Scream 4, Craven confirmed and signed for the next two projects: the fifth and sixth installment of the franchise. The shooting of the film was scheduled to start in May 2020. However, it was delayed due to the pandemic COVID-19. Later the filming began on 22 September 2020 in Wilmington, North Carolina. The knife in the picture is a careful move indicating something important in the upcoming film. The team has not revealed any concrete details about the plot but in an interview with Roger L Jackson- the voice of the Ghostface gave some hints of the involvement of more than one killer. The horror franchise is known for its killers. The audience was hoping for the 2021 release, but due to the coronavirus, the film is now expected to be released on 14 January 2022. It will be interesting to see how the Scream’s franchise will turn out after the absence of one of the greatest horror film directors, Wes Craven. With the new director, Scream 5 could make a whole new perspective towards the franchise, and to witness that, we have to wait until the release.
