Ghostface and the gang return to theaters on March 10, 2023 with the release of Scream 6, and among the returning cast is Scream 2022 star Jenna Ortega (“Wednesday”).
Speaking with ET Online this week, Ortega teases what we can expect from the upcoming sixth installment in the franchise, while also touching upon its handling of Sidney Prescott.
Neve Campbell, last we heard, will NOT be coming back for Scream 6.
Ortega tells the outlet, “I feel like I can’t really speak too much on that just because it’s not necessarily my character. But I will say there’s so much going on in this next one, that it’s so action-heavy and so gore-heavy that I think you’re gonna be distracted almost.”
She continues, “But it’s very clear, like, there’s references to Sidney, of course. You know, it’s nice because there’s still a protectiveness in the script and that’s something that the actors had naturally over her because obviously we respect her and we want the best for her. She’s missed and thought of.”
Ortega had previously told ET Online that Scream 6 features “probably the most aggressive and violent version of Ghostface we’ve ever seen,” which lines up with these new comments.
In the brand new movie, “The Scream saga continues with the four survivors of the Ghostface killings as they leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter.”
Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Scream, Ready or Not), are both back behind the camera for the upcoming Scream movie, which doesn’t yet have an official title.
Melissa Barrera (“Sam”), Jasmin Savoy Brown (“Mindy”), Mason Gooding (“Chad”), Jenna Ortega (“Tara”), and Dermot Mulroney are all confirmed for the next installment of Spyglass Media and Paramount Pictures’ franchise, with Samara Weaving (Ready or Not, Mayhem, The Babysitter, “Ash vs Evil Dead”), Tony Revolori (Spider-Man: Homecoming & No Way Home), Jack Champion (Avatar: The Way of Water), Liana Liberato (The Beach House), Devyn Nekoda (“Ghostwriter”), Josh Segarra (“Arrow), and Henry Czerny (Ready or Not) also starring.
