The classic 90s slasher Scream will get a relaunch in 2022 with a brand-new Scream movie. The upcoming horror flick will have completely new cast members with some original cast making an appearance.
After the fourth installment of the movie in 2011, the overall future of the franchise was uncertain. Also, the director of the original movie Wes Craven passed away in 2015 which made it even more uncertain. However, the movie’s return was announced in 2020. This was a welcome change for the fans.
Who are the new cast members?
Confirmed to be titled just Scream (not Scream 5), the fans will revisit the fictional town of Woodsboro, California. The movie has In The Heights star Melissa Barrera along with Dylan Minnette (Thirteen Reasons Why), Jenna Ortega (You), and Jack Quaid (The Boys).
The movie will also see the return of original cast members that includes Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Marley Shelton.
Although not much is known about the movie yet, Melissa Barrera had a lot to say about the final cut.
Barrera took to Twitter and tease the fans about the upcoming movie. She said that she has seen the final cut of the movie. She teased fans by saying “ain’t ready” for what’s to come along with Ghostface’s signature choice of weapon, Knife. Check out her tweet below.

What to expect from the Scream 2022?
Not much has been told about the movie but Barrera confirmed that Craven’s legacy will be honored in the movie. This will make the original fans happy while keeping the story fresh for the new audience.
The star’s tweet has definitely excited fans. Based on the cryptic tweet from the Scream’s official Twitter account and introduction of the new Ghostface emoji, the trailer can drop any day. Amidst this, Barrera’s tweet is no coincidence.
Craven classics are a firm fan-favorite in the horror genre. Moreover, Barrera’s tweet confirms that the new movie plot is something to behold. This has excited the fans and it will be interesting to see the directing duo Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett have created. They certainly have big shoes to fill.
The movie will release in January. And the Halloween spirit is the best time to officially gear up its promotion.
