'Scream': Jack Quaid Cast in 'Scream' Reboot


Jack Quaid has been cast in Paramount and Spyglass Media's "Scream" reboot.

In the relaunch of the slasher film, Courteney Cox and David Arquette are reprising their roles as news reporter Gale Weathers and sheriff Dewey Riley. It's unclear who Quaid will play in the movie.

"Ready or Not" filmmakers Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are directing the new "Scream" from a script by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. The cast also includes Melissa Barrera ("Vida," "In the Heights") and Jenna Ortega ("You," "Jane the Virgin").

The studio expects filming to begin later this year in Wilmington, N.C. Paramount recently announced "Scream" will debut in theaters Jan. 14, 2022.

The original "Scream" premiered in 1996 and starred Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, a high school student who becomes the target of a mysterious killer who dresses in a "Ghostface" Halloween costume. The well-reviewed movie ended its box office run with a robust $173 million globally, solidifying its place as the highest-grossing slasher film until the release of "Halloween" with Jamie Lee Curtis in 2018. After the commercial success of "Scream," three sequels followed. The four film franchise have grossed over $600 million worldwide combined.
 

Creator Kevin Williamson and Chad Villella, are executive producing with Project X Entertainment's Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak serving as producers.

Quaid currently stars in Amazon's series "The Boys." His credits also include the independent comedy "Plus" and the first two "Hunger Games" films.

Quaid is represented by United Talent Agency, Anonymous Content and Viewpoint.
