With the Radio Silence directing workforce placing their give attention to making a monster film for Common Footage and a remake of Escape From New York, they needed to cross off Scream VII to a different filmmaker to take over the horror franchise. That director ended up being Christopher Landon, who helmed movies comparable to Completely satisfied Loss of life Day and Freaky. He’s made some nice horror motion pictures and it looks like the Scream franchise could be an ideal match for his filmmaking and storytelling fashion.
Throughout a latest interview on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Present, Landon was requested about Scream VII and the way that ended up touchdown in his lap, and he defined that it was all the time meant to be. He stated:
“It got here out of the blue for me. My understanding is that there have been conversations taking place for a while. However I believe it was simply a chance that basically arose as a result of the opposite administrators who did the final two movies, Tyler and Matt, they needed to do one thing else. They had been able to sort of do one thing completely different. That is once they clearly needed to discover somebody new, and I’ve recognized Kevin Williamson, who wrote the unique movie, for a protracted, very long time and he is a buddy. I believe he threw my identify into the hat and everyone sort of stated, ‘Yeah, that is sensible. That appears to make sense.’ And I used to be simply thrilled that I obtained that decision as a result of it felt very, it felt like kismet, it felt like a factor that like was all the time meant to be.”
There’s no info on who might be writing Scream VII, however the final two movies had been written by James Vanderbilt and Man Busick. Landon can be a screenwriter, so I think about that he’ll no less than be a co-writer on the script.
As for the solid, I think about most, if not all, of the surviving major characters will return, so that features Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, and Jasmin Savoy Brown. It will even be good to see Hayden Panettiere.
I’m curious to see the place they take the story subsequent because the artistic workforce makes an attempt to maintain the franchise recent.
