Paramount Pictures is not wasting any time, kicking off the new year with a new Scream VI poster that features the Ghostface mask made out of a highlighted NYC subway map, with each stop named after a character.
The first trailer has already been released, revealing Ghostface stalking four survivors from Scream V on the subway after they have left Woodbury behind.
Past Scream stars are returning to reprise their roles, including Melissa Barrera (Bed Rest), Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, franchise star Courtney Cox, and Hayden Panettiere from Scream 4. Dermot Mulroney (“The Purge” series) has joined the cast alongside Jack Champion (Avatar: The Way of Water), Liana Liberato (The Beach House), Devyn Nekoda (Ghostwriter), and Josh Segarra of “Arrow,” and Samara Weaving (Ready or Not), as well as Tony Revolori (Spider-Man: No Way Home).
Barrera recently spoke with Collider, implying that the sequel will be bigger and bloodier than its predecessors.
“With the last Scream, they were tip-toeing and trying to be very respectful of what the franchise had been, up until that point, and keeping their inner gory dreams at bay. But with this one, they were like, “We’re going all out.” It’s potentially a hundred times gorier.” Barrera continues, “There was a saying on set because (directors) Matt [Bettinelli-Olpin] and Tyler [Gillett] were always asking for more blood and more sweat. They always just wanted more. ‘More blood spritz’ was the saying because they would just always want more.”
Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Scream, Ready or Not) will helm the film, with James Vanderbilt (Scream, Murder Mystery) and Guy Busick (Scream, Ready or Not) writing the script. Project X Entertainment’s Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein, and William Sherak serve as producers (Scream, Ambulance). Kevin Williamson and the other member of Radio Silence, Chad Villella, are executive producing alongside Spyglass’ Gary Barber, Peter Oillataguerre, Ron Lynch, Cathy Konrad, and Marianne Maddalena.
Scream VI will slash its way into theaters on March 10, 2023, from Paramount.
