The 2022 reboot/sequel of Scream was a commercial and critical success.
On a budget of $24 million, Scream earned $140 million at the worldwide box office, a healthy return for an R-rated 18+ film.
A major contributing factor to the success of the latest movie in the Scream franchise has been attributed to the young cast who breathed new life, or death, into Woodsboro.
Franchise favourites Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette all featured, but the plot centred around a new batch of teens, led by Melissa Barrera's Sam Carpenter.
Also in the crew were Tara Carpenter (Jenna Ortega), Richie Kirsch (Jack Quaid), Amber Freeman (Mikey Madison), Wes Hicks (Dylan Minette), Mindy Meeks-Martin (Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Chad Meeks-Martin (Mason Gooding).
For obvious reasons, a few of that crew didn't make it out of the first film alive to feature in the sequel.
It has now been confirmed that the actors playing the four core survivors - Barrera, Ortega, Savoy Brown and Gooding will return for the sequel, which is set to be released in March of 2023.
Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, part of the filmmaking collective known as Radio Silence, are returning behind the camera, while James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick will once again pen the script.
