“SCREAM 7” TO SHOOT THIS SEPTEMBER; PATRICK DEMPSEY OUT?

Posted on: July 7th, 2024

Time to start practicing folks, because we’ll soon be screaming again, if new reports are to be believed.

According to an official line given to Production Weekly, Scream 7 has been confirmed to begin shooting in September of 2024.

This tracks with what star Neve Campbell has said at numerous convention appearances, backed up by her promoter Sean Clark.

This means we’re less than 3 months away from having Scream 7 before the cameras! Just a few months ago, fans feared we’d never arrive here, as the seventh entry was seemingly dead in the water.

Actress Melissa Barrera was fired from the project in November 2023, and the exits of numerous Scream ’22 and Scream VI co-stars followed.

It wasn’t until March when the project gained stability once more, with Neve Campbell announcing she would reprise her role as Sidney Prescott in a starring capacity. Alongside this, series creator Kevin Williamson was announced as director, with the project eyed as a “creative reset” after the previous two films.

To that end, Scream 3 star Patrick Dempsey was tipped to return as Mark Kincaid, the husband to Campbell’s character. However, now reports suggest that Dempsey may have exited the project, opting instead to concentrate on Dexter: Original Sin.

Dempsey was recently announced to have joined the cast, with filming commencing in late June. Speculation suggests that Dempsey will be unable to balance that commitment with Scream 7. However, given that Scream 7 still has up to 3 months before shooting begins, it’s possible everything could be scheduled perfectly.

So, a shooting date is in place, yet very little is known about the project. Although we’ve heard multiple casting rumours surrounding Scream 7, nothing has been confirmed, besides Campbell.

With the shoot looming, we are hoping for some official announcements soon… Or is this all a ploy to keep the mystery alive? Only time will tell, so watch this space.
