The fifth installment of the known horror franchise Scream was released earlier this year, and the movie achieved surprisingly good results in both critical and commercial ways.
The movie received positive reviews, and many praised how it honored the legacy of Wes Craven, the late director who directed the first four Scream movies. The movie grossed $134.9 million against its budget of $24 million. The development of the sequel was announced earlier this month.
With a new sequel on the way, there’s a question if Scream veteran Neve Campbell will return as Sidney Prescott. Campbell now revealed that she was approached by the producers for the sequel, but she still didn’t offer a definitive answer. In fact, she’s still waiting to read the script and then she’s going to decide.
“They have approached me. There’s no script yet. There is a draft coming in soon is what I was told. Actually, I was supposed to call a producer yesterday, because he wanted to talk to me about what’s going on. You know, we’ll see. I’ll read the script and see how I feel.” — Neve Campbell for Halloween Daily News
