According to Bloody Disgusting, the fifth part of the “Scream” horror series received several editing options at once. According to the creators of the picture, this was done in order to avoid leaks and spoilers.
At one time, the franchise has already suffered from a similar incident. The final script for Scream 2, written by Kevin Williamson, has leaked online. Because of this, the screenwriter almost at the last minute had to rewrite the ending of the horror.
Scream 5 was directed by Matthew Bettinelli and Tyler Gillett. All previous films were directed by Wes Craven, who passed away in 2015. The film was produced by the same Kevin Williamson.
Many actors in the franchise will return to the roles: Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Marley Shelton. They will be joined by Jack Quaid (Boys), Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega. The premiere is expected on January 14, 2022.
