Another “Scream” film was lit green.
Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett – who are members of the American filmmaking trio Radio Silence with Chad Villella – are set to helm a new sequel from writers James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick.
Spyglass and Paramount said in a statement: “We are extremely grateful to fans around the world who have enthusiastically received our film. We can’t wait for audiences to see what Radio Silence, writers Jamie & Guy and Project X have in store. for our Woodsboro Family.”
Radio Silence added: “Working with such a wonderful and talented family of creators – and in line with Wes and Kevin so skillfully built – has been the thrill of a lifetime, and we’re thrilled to bring the next chapter in the saga. Scream live.”
2022’s ‘Scream’ saw original stars Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) and Dewey Riley (David Arquette) return alongside newcomers.
The sequel turns green after Gillett teased that he wanted to do another “Scream” movie and that they had ideas up their sleeves to continue the hit slasher series.
He said: “I think I can say we both like the ideas and I think we want to pursue both things. We have a bunch of really fun and original things we’re working on.
“We certainly know that Guy (Bisick) and Jamie (Vanderbilt) have some amazing ideas about where ‘Scream’ could go after this one. We just want to be involved in all of this.”
The filmmaker continued, “We just want to be involved in all of this. I think once you’ve had an experience with people that really changes you, not just creatively, but fills your heart and fulfills you, really, in a way that I think we never thought we’d be fulfilled, you just want to replicate that as many times as possible.”
Tyler admits following in the footsteps of the legendary Wes Craven by directing a “Scream” movie was a “unique challenge” and believes he achieved a career goal with the project.
He said: “It was a unique challenge and I think it scratched an itch that we didn’t know we had, and I think it will continue to itch. So hopefully there will be more. “
