“There are things that happen in the movie that are kind of shocking—I still can’t believe it,” Courtney Cox teases in the new featurette for Scream, which showcases some new footage and additional details about the plot.
Melissa Barrera (In the Heights) reveals that her character, Sam, is the target of the Ghostface killer this time around. Naturally, she turns to the kind-hearted Dewey Riley (played by returning actor David Arquette) for help.
Other returning cast members include Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, Marley Shelton as Deputy Judy Hicks, and the aforementioned Cox as Gale Weathers. Dylan Minnette (Don’t Breathe), Mason Gooding (Booksmart), Kyle Gallner (The Cleansing Hour), Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers), Mikey Madison (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Jack Quaid (Tragedy Girls), and Jenna Ortega (The Babysitter: Killer Queen) also star.
Set 25 years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, Scream will see a new killer donning the Ghostface mask and targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or Not) directed the film, which was written by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) and Guy Busick (Castle Rock). Franchise creator Kevin Williamson served as an executive producer.
Ghostface slashes into cinemas on January 14th, 2022. Check out the new featurette below.
