Samara Weaving (“Ready or Not”) and Tony Revolori (“Spider-Man: No Way Home”) have joined the cast of the “Scream” sequel, the sixth installment in the horror franchise, according to an individual with knowledge of the project.
Waeving jojns a cast that includes the young stars from the “lega-sequel,” including Melissa Barrera (“Sam”) Jasmin Savoy Brown (“Mindy”) Mason Gooding (“Chad”) and Jenna Ortega (“Tara”).
As previously announced, the directing team known as Radio Silence, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, will also return, as will co-screenwriters James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick as they tackle the next chapter for the terrifying Ghostface killer.
Spyglass Media and Paramount Pictures’ will release the currently untitled “Scream 6” in theaters on March 31, 2023.
Project X Entertainment’s Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak are serving as producers (“Scream,” “Ambulance”). Creator Kevin Williamson and the third member of Radio Silence, Chad Villella, are executive producing alongside Spyglass’ Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre, Ron Lynch, Cathy Konrad and Marianne Maddalena.
In the fifth film, which released this January and earned $140 million at the worldwide box office, Barrera and Ortega played sisters who naturally had a tie to the murders as told in the original “Scream” from 1996 as directed by Wes Craven, and Savoy Brown, with her sibling played by Gooding, were standouts of the new film for playing the film literate, fourth wall-breaking character who introduces the terms “re-quel” and “lega-sequel” to explain how rebooted franchises always cast fresh faced young actors alongside the stars of the original from decades earlier.
Sure enough, “Scream” additionally starred Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell alongside newcomers Kyle Gallner, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton and Sonia Ammar.
“Scream” (2022) is currently available on Digital, Blu-ray and is streaming on Paramount+.
Weaving is repped by CAA, 111 Media and Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole. Revolori is repped by WME and Circle of Confusion.
