Scream 6: this very bad news will make fans of the saga cry
Scream 6 was a dream project… Until some very bad news revealed at the start of the week dampened the enthusiasm of fans . Decryption.
Last year, the Scream sagawas reborn from its ashes in a fifth opus mixing old and new generations. The “veterans” Neve Campbell (Sidney Prescott), Courteney Cox (Gale Weathers) and David Arquette (Dewey Riley) gave the answer to the young Melissa Barrera (Sam Carpenter), Jenna Ortega (Tara Carpenter) and Jack Quaid (Richie Kirsch) in front the camera of filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. Crowned with success, Scream 5 convinced its producers to immediately start work on a sequel, promised in cinemas for March 29, 2023.
In this long-awaited sequel, the survivors of the previous opus should once again face Ghostface. It will therefore be necessary to count on the presence on the screen of Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding and Jenna Ortega, but also of Courteney Cox or Hayden Panettiere (Scream 4). According to exclusive information revealed by Deadline, Sidney Prescott, THE final girl of the franchise, will not be returning to kick Ghostface's ass.
