What will the theme of Scream 6 be? It’s genuine that Paramount is shifting forward towards Scream 6, so Ghostface’s panic isn’t over yet. The creative department behind Scream 5 is back for this new installment in the meta-horror film series.
That means co-directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, as well as authors James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick, are in charge of resurrecting Ghostface.
But the last Scream film ended on a pretty convincing note, with Gale and Sidney agreeing not to publicize anything about this latest wave of murders in order to eventually put Billy Loomis and Stu Macher’s heritage to rest. So, what happens in this new horror movie?
So, in order to answer that specific question, we’ve put on our heads screwed and dug a little deeper. We’ve left no question unanswered in terms of potential plots, casting, and movie cliches to parody. So, here’s what we think will happen in Scream 6.
What is Scream 6 Plot About?
It’s hard to predict what the new film will be about. Scream 5 purposefully avoided teasing a possible future sequel, or, as co-writer James Vanderbilt put it, “we decided not to make the two-hour trailer for Scream 6.”
Having said that, a few are hanging down plot strings and Easter Eggs in the film that could be acknowledged in the sequel. We saw Sam find a way to deal with her killer father, Billy Loomis’, visions, but now that she’s succumbed to those possibly darker impulses, will she follow in her father’s footsteps? We keep hoping not to be honest, but there is clearly more to be discovered there.
Equally, the attack on Tara and Sam successfully transforms them into the new Sidney, so it’s not out of the question that some distorted Stab fan or family members of a deceased Ghostface return to exact revenge.
Ghostface’s creators, Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin have stated that they have more plans for the character.
What Horror Movie Trope Will Scream 6 Parody?
The Scream storyline was cunningly perverting and calling out horror movie cliches and tropes before the Scary Film franchise ran the idea of comedy sketch into the ground. The first one was a slasher critique, the second was a sequel deconstruction, and the third was a trilogy deconstruction.
Scream 4, which focused on social media and celebrity rather than movies, blurred the lines slightly, but satire remained at the core of the film.
Scream 5 took things “back to the movies,” in the phrases of Tom Cruise, by providing discussion on Hollywood’s latest addiction, “requels,” as well as “elevated horror.”
So, what could Scream 6 be a parody of? To be honest, it’s a tough question to answer. The horror trends of 2023 will most probably be closer to those of 2022. Having said that, if we had to bet on Scream 6 analyzing any recent craze, it might have been our fascination with nostalgia.
Who’ll Be Cast In Scream 6?
At this time, no official cast for Scream 6 has been declared, though the younger group of Westboro teens is expected to return. This means Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, and Jasmin Savoy Brown will almost certainly return.
It’s unlikely that Jack Quaid and Mason Gooding will reprise their roles because they both died at the end of Scream 2022. Correspondingly, David Arquette ran out of luck in the previous film, dying at the end of Ghostface’s weapon. If anyone is prone to make a flashback impression, it’ll be him, but it’ll most likely be kept a secret.
Neve Campbell and Courtney Cox, on the other hand? It’s difficult to say. They are the film’s heritage characters, and it would be weird to watch a Scream film without them, but their presence in Scream (2022) had a sense of closure, so maybe they’re done. Campbell has expressed a desire to return. Possibly Campbell and Cox will be present at the time, and they’ll meet a sticky end.
Is There A Trailer For Scream 6?
At the time of writing, there is no trailer for Scream 6. The slasher sequel from Paramount was only recently stated, with shooting the movie to begin this summer.
So, truthfully, we won’t see any video or sneak peeks till the end of the year, if not the beginning of the next.
When Will Scream 6 Be Available?
Scream 6 does not yet have an official release date. The film is expected to begin creation this summer, implying that Scream 6 will be released next year.
But don’t forget that the Covid-19 global epidemic isn’t over, and new restrictions may interrupt Scream 6’s production, so nothing is sure right now.
