Scream Reboot In The Works From Ready Or Not Directors
A Scream reboot is in the work from the directors of Ready or Not. Horror movies have not been immune from the Hollywood remake trend. Everything from Child’s Play to Halloween has been remade.
Since it’s been a decade since the Scream franchise was revisited, it makes sense that a movie featuring Ghostface is currently in the works, as reported by Cinema Blend. The directors of Ready or Not will behind this new film, which means that good times will be had.
It’s Been A Decade Since The Scream Franchise Was Revisited
Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett directed the horror comedy Ready or Not in 2019. It perfectly blended dry sarcasm, satire, and gory terror. It became one of the most critically acclaimed movies of 2019. The movie starred Samara Weaving as a newlywed who was hunted by her spouse’s family as part of their wedding night ritual.
Ready or Not was made with a $6 million budget and earned $57 million at the box office. Now, the directors want to focus on the Scream franchise, which revitalized the horror movie genre in the 90s.
It’s unclear whether the new Scream film will be a reboot or an installment of the franchise. Chad Villela Radio Silence, Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin, and Tyler Gillett are part of the filmmaking team with Villela as one of the producers. The trio has worked together before on Devil’s Due (2014), Southbound (2015), and V/H/S (2012).
