Ahead of its premiere, Scream continues to unleash images and featurettes for the movie. The latest featurette, titled “Return to Woodsboro” features commentary from the original stars, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette. It serves as a recap of sorts of the franchise and goes behind the scenes of the new sequel. The previous featurette released also features Cox’s Gail Weathers as she gives a news report.





In the movie, set twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past.


Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), Gail Weathers (Courtney Cox), and Dewey Riley (David Arquette) return to save a new generation of victims in the new sequel to the Scream franchise, set twenty-five years after the first film. Deputy Judy Hicks (Marley Shelton) from Scream 4 also returns. New cast members include Jenna Ortega, Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Jack Quaid, and Dylan Minnette.


Scream, the fifth film of the franchise, is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, and produced by Chad Villella, the three members of the filmmaking group known as Radio Silence (Ready or Not, V/H/S, Southbound).


James Vanderbilt (Murder Mystery, Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Guy Busick (Ready or Not, Castle Rock) penned the script. Kevin Williamson returns as executive producer.


Scream opens in theaters nationwide on January 14, 2022, from Paramount Pictures.
