What’s your favorite scary movie? If I was asked what one of my favorite scary movies was last year I would have to say, Ready or Not. So, the news that the next Scream film has the filmmakers behind Ready or Not at the helm is beyond exciting.
Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the team behind Ready or Not will join executive producer Kevin Williamson and writer Chad Villella.
Discussing Film report that their sources say Scream 5 will follow a woman returning to her home town to try to find out who has been committing a series of vicious crimes.’ Past that not much is known if this will be a reboot or connect to the original four Wes Craven directed films.
Our friends at Bloody Disgusting earlier reported Scream was going into the hands of Spyglass Entertainment for development.
If you have seen Ready or Not, you can see why these dudes are a perfect fit for Scream. Plus, having Kevin Williamson on in the executive producer capacity can’t hurt either.
Personally, I’m hoping they take Scream in a new direction and don’t connect to Craven’s at all. They were uniquely his. It would be great to see a complete reinvention of the franchise while keeping it’s slasher bones intact.
What do you guys think about the choice of directors? Let us know in the comments section. Oh, and if you still haven’t seen Ready or Not, please do. It’s great.
