First Images from Scream

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

One of the most anticipated movies on the radar scope is Scream. The Scream franchise returns to theaters on January 14, 2022. The filmmaking team this time around includes directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett, and producer Chad Villella. These three are members of the filmmaking group known as Radio Silence (Ready or Not, V/H/S, Southbound).

While we wait for the trailer, the first official images from this installment have been shared. We get iconic characters including Sidney Prescott, Gale Weathers, and Dewey Riley (played by the original actors). Deputy Judy Hicks is also back from Scream 4, along with a bunch of new faces.


Dylan Minnette (Goosebumps), Mason Gooding (Let It Snow), Kyle Gallner (Ghosts of War), Jasmin Savoy Brown (“Love”) and Mikey Madison (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) join an ensemble that also includes Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, David Arquette and Courteney Cox who will return as Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers, as well as new cast members Jack Quaid (“The Boys”), Melissa Barrera (“In The Heights”) and Jenna Ortega (“You”). Marley Shelton is also returning as Scream 4 character Deputy Judy Hicks. James Vanderbilt (Murder Mystery, Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Guy Busick (Ready or Not, Castle Rock) wrote the script. Kevin Williamson is also back as executive producer.


Though billed as a relaunch of the franchise, the film is a direct sequel to 2011's Scream 4. Other franchises need to understand this, stop destroying the canon, and give us new installments instead of rehashing old stories in new boxes. Still kinda pissed over the name though.
