‘Slash Film: Scream 6 Feels More Like A ‘Reinvention’ Than ‘Part 6,’ According To Kevin Williamson’

Slash Film

This section contains spoilers for the fifth “Scream” movie.

True to self-reflexive form, last year’s “Scream” coined the term “requel” to refer to the Hollywood trend of legacy sequels — of which it was one. However, while the aforementioned characters Sidney, Gale, and Dewey might have been front and center on the movie poster, they and Billy Loomis, played by Skeet Ulrich (who returned in hallucination form) served principally as the elder statespeople of “Scream.” The movie was more about the new, younger generation, led by Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, and Jasmin Savoy Brown.

After five movies, Ghostface finally caught up with Dewey, so he won’t be around for “Scream VI,” and neither will Sidney, since the powers that be apparently lowballed Neve Campbell to the point where she turned down the offer to return as a matter of self-respect. That leaves only Gale, Hayden Panettiere’s character Kirby from “Scream 4” (who was left out of the last movie but is finally back), along with returning requel-ers like Barrera, Ortega, and Savoy Brown, and new additions to the cast like Henry Czerny, Samara Weaving, and Tony Revolori.

Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin are back in the director’s chair(s) for “Scream VI,” and the movie will reunite them with Weaving from “Ready or Not.” With all this young blood on hand and the movie headed to New York City (where other horror icons like the Babadook can be seen riding the train on Halloween), it’s easy to see why Williamson might see “Scream VI” as a “big, huge, fresh reinvention” in terms of both cast and setting.

“Scream VI” slashes its way into theaters on March 10, 2023.
