Interview: Neve Campbell And David Arquette Talk ‘Scream’, Welcoming The New Cast & More
Audiences are heading back to Woodsboro with the latest installment of the Scream franchise. The fifth film in the slasher series sees returners and newcomers collide, in an attempt to survive the onslaught of the new wearer of the Ghostface mask.
This epic series, created by the late Wes Craven, spans over two decades and has left its mark embedded in the horror film genre. The first film became known for its meta takes on horror movies and the beloved heroine of the series, Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell).
Now, directors Matt Bertinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (V/H/S and Ready or Not) have taken a stab at directing the series, with Campbell and other franchise alums Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Marley Shelton returning. Additionally, a bevy of franchise newcomers struggle to not end up on the other end of Ghostface’s blade.
But to officially take us back, I had the chance to spend time with the cast of Scream to learn more about the latest installment of the slasher series. My first interview was with Neve Campbell and David Arquette who gushed about their new castmates, the legacy of the franchise and what fans can expect from the latest film.
