'Scream 6': Spyglass and Paramount Sequel Set to Begin Production This Summer!

News broke this evening that Spyglass Entertainment and Paramount Pictures are moving forward with Scream 6. Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett have signed on to helm the sequel with James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick back on board writing the screenplay. We can also confirm that original Scream writer Kevin Williamson will serve as executive producer.

With the recent Scream making over $100 million at the global box office, green lighting another sequel makes perfect sense considering how well the last one was received.

Project X Entertainment’s Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak are serving as producers. Chad Villella, Gary Barber, and Peter Oillataguerre are also on board as executive producers.

The Radio Silence team – Bettinelli-Olpin, Gillett, and Villella shared the following statement via our friends at Deadline:

Working with such a wonderful and talented family of creators – and in the lineage Wes and Kevin so expertly built – has been the thrill of a lifetime and we’re so excited to bring the next chapter in the ‘Scream’ saga to life.

Reps for Spyglass and Paramount had this to say:

We are tremendously grateful to the fans around the world who enthusiastically received our film. We can’t wait for audiences to see what Radio Silence, writers Jamie & Guy and Project X have in store for our Woodsboro family.

Finally, Vanderbilt and Busick shared their thoughts:

Is this real life? Getting to collaborate once again with our friends on the next installment of the ‘Scream’ story is more than we could have hoped for. We are overwhelmed that we get to continue to play in the sandbox that Kevin and Wes created. It is, as Ghostface would say, an honor.

What did you think of the latest Scream sequel? Are you excited for more ghostface carnage in Scream 6? As usual, you can let us know the answers to both questions down in our comments section below this post.
