Principal Photography is Targeted to Begin Late Summer in Wilmington, NC

LOS ANGELES (June 24, 2020)— Spyglass Media Group, LLC ("Spyglass") and Paramount Pictures confirmed today they will co-produce the relaunch of "Scream." Starring David Arquette, the film is being directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett of the filmmaking group Radio Silence ("Ready or Not," "V/H/S") from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt ("Murder Mystery," "Zodiac," "The Amazing Spider-Man") and Guy Busick ("Ready or Not," "Castle Rock"). Project X Entertainment's Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak are serving as producers while creator Kevin Williamson and the third member of the Radio Silence trio, Chad Villella, are executive producing.

Targeted for release in 2021, Paramount will market and distribute the film worldwide in all media with select international territories and domestic pay 1 television being handled by Spyglass. Principal photography is targeted to begin late summer in Wilmington, NC. Additional casting updates to follow.

"Scream" is a long-running genre-busting horror franchise which generated four feature films including "Scream" (1996), "Scream 2" (1997), "Scream 3" (2000) and "Scream 4" (2011). Directed by famed "maestro of horror," the late Wes Craven, the films went on to gross more than $600 million in worldwide box office receipts.  Williamson wrote the original film as well as "Scream 2" and "Scream 4."
