At the beginning of the month, the co-directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin y Tyler Gillett (Scream 2022, Ready Or Not), finished filming the next installment of the slasher saga Screamwhich for now we refer to as Scream 6.
With details of the plot to be known, this is the description that the Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media studios handle Scream 6:
“Continue with the four survivors of the murders of Ghostface as they leave Woodsboro behind and begin a new chapter.”
If you’ve been closely following the news about Scream 6, you will be aware of what the beginning of “a new chapter” means, and if not, we will bring you up to date. The new sequel will move its events from Woodsboro to New York City. And although it is a new place, the survivors of Scream 5 They will have no escape from the dreaded Ghostface, as the villain will continue to stalk them.
- EYE TO THE DATA: This is not the first time Ghostface has hunted his victims outside of Woodsboro, as Scream 2 it moved us to Windsor College in Ohio, but it does mark the first time filming has taken place outside of the United States.
The sequel has on board the return of said group of survivors, who are played by the Mexican Melissa Barrera (Keep Breathing), Jasmin Savoy Brown (Yellowjackets),Mason Gooding (Fall) y Jenna Ortega (X, Wednesday), reprising their roles as Sam Carpenter, twins Mindy and Chad Meeks-Martin, and Tara Carpenter, respectively.
It is precisely Barrera, who in an interview with Collider from TIFF 2022, spoke about what is to come in Scream 6and the change of location to NYC:
“It’s like 20 times more mortifying. It is awful. Because you also see how, in a city like New York City, everyone is doing their thing and someone is crying out for help, and no one comes to their aid.. Nobody comes to help them, you know, everybody says, “I’m not going to get into that.” So it’s mortifying, because Ghostface is after you, but you also see humanity and how he reacts in a situation like that. Anyway, I think I’ve probably said too much already.”
As you may already be aware, Neve Campbell turned down return to Scream 6 due to pay disputealthough recently the rumor began to spread that the actress will be back, something that was already denied by Campbell herself, so the only member of the original trio who will return for Scream 6 es Courteney Cox, reprising his role as Gale Weathers. We previously shared some awesome trivia about Cox and Scream 6and it is that his participation in the sequel, leads her to make history in horror movies as the first time a woman has played a character who appears in six consecutive films in a horror franchise.
