Scream 5 Release Date Confirmed, First Teaser Revealed

Few successful horror franchises ever truly die, and Scream is the latest series to be rebooted. The fifth Scream movie has now been given a confirmed release date, and the first teaser has been released.

Scream 5 will hit theaters on January 14, 2022. The film has been steadily adding cast members over the last few months, but it is yet to start production. As a result the teaser is very basic–literally just the movies’ iconic Ghostface mask emerging out of darkness. Nevertheless, it’s exciting to see it again–check the teaser out below:

Scream 5 hasn’t got an official title–although given every movie so far has just been a numerical sequel, it might just stay that way. It’ll be directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who helmed last year’s highly entertaining horror comedy Ready or Not.

In terms of the cast, original stars Courtney Cox and David Arquette have confirmed they are returning as Gale Weathers and Dewey Riley respectively. The movie will also star Melissa Barrera (Vida, the upcoming In the Heights) and Jenna Ortega (Insidious: Chapter 2, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous), who were both announced last month in undisclosed roles.

As well as Scream 5, there are also new entries in the Halloween and Texas Chainsaw Massacre series on the way. Halloween Kills was originally set to arrive in October this year, but has been put back until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The eighth Texas Chainsaw movie is currently shooting in Bulgaria, although last week it was reported that the movie’s directors had been replaced after a week of shooting.
