‘Scream’ Reboot Enlists ‘Ready or Not’ Directors Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett

The ‘Scream’ franchise, written and directed by Wes Craven of ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ fame, gained success for its funny, self-referential take on the horror genre. However, the series did not have an entry since 2011 with ‘Scream 4.’ Future sequels were further hampered by the death of Craven in 2015, leaving the franchise in limbo, for films. Until now.

First reported by Discussing Film, and later confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, directors of the satirical cult horror flick ‘Ready or Not,’ will direct a new ‘Scream’ film for Spyglass Entertainment.

Spyglass gained the rights to the project in November 2019. It is unknown whether this installment of ‘Scream’ will be a full reboot set in its own continuity or a continuation featuring members of the original cast.

However, there is a tidbit of plot details available:

“The film will follow a woman returning to her hometown to try to find out who has been committing a series of vicious crimes.”

Filming is looking to begin this May.
