Scream 5 First Images Reveal Sidney, Gale & Dewey’s Return.
The first photos for 2022’s Scream have been released by Paramount Pictures, and they include Neve Campbell’s Sidney, Courteney Cox’s Gale, and David Arquette’s Dewey.
The slasher horror franchise began in 1996 with the release of the eponymous film, directed by Wes Craven and written by genre veteran Kevin Williamson,
which followed Sidney Prescott as she is stalked by a variety of killers dressed in the Ghostface mask and must rely on the help of her friends, tabloid reporter Gale Weathers, local police officer Dewey Riley,
and film buff Randy Meeks, to survive. Only Campbell, Arquette, Cox, and Ghostface voice Roger L. Jackson have appeared in all four films.
The cast will reunite for the new Scream, a reboot of the horror series, and a direct sequel to 2011’s Scream 4, directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett of Ready or Not.
Melissa Barrera from In the Heights, Jack Quaid from The Boys, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Dylan Minnette, Mikey Madison, Sonia Ben Ammar,
and Kyle Gallner from The Boys will all appear in the film.
Audiences are getting set to receive their first taste of what’s to come from Scream, which wrapped production almost a year ago.
The first photos for next year’s Scream reboot have been released by Paramount (via Entertainment Weekly) ahead of the release of the first teaser for the flick.
The pictures include the return of Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, as well as Judy Hicks, played by Marley Shelton, and the debut of the franchise’s youthful recruits. Take a look at the first pictures below:
While the first pictures of the Scream franchise’s famous core three don’t reveal much about the film’s still-unknown storyline, it’s thrilling for longtime fans of the genre to see them reunited for another chapter.
While Marley Shelton has already announced that she will reprise her role as Judy in the upcoming picture, it’s worth noting that EW’s description for the photo labels her as Sheriff Judy Hicks,
despite the fact that she was a deputy in her first film, Scream 4. Though Dewey appeared content in his role as Woodsboro Sheriff, it’s possible he stepped down to care for his wife Gale after her injuries in the 2011 picture.
The new Scream characters’ pictures are equally vague about the storyline, with the exception of Jack Quaid and Melissa Barrera’s personas, who seem to be a relationship in their image.
The lone still of Ghostface also reveals a deliberate angle in the killer’s design to obscure any distinguishing body height or size in order to limit down the possible suspect pool, adding to the horror sequel’s real mystery.
When Scream hits cinemas on January 14, 2022, only time will reveal who is truly behind the mask.
