Neve Campbell won’t be in the next Scream movie (and her franchise co-stars have some things to say about that), but the sequel we’re currently referring to as Scream 6 is still on track for a March 31, 2023 theatrical release date. Filming is already underway in Montreal – and our friends at Bloody Disgusting have been able to confirm that the rumors about Montreal standing in for New York City are true. Scream 6 is set in New York City.
A YouTube video showing buildings in Montreal that have been confirmed to be Scream 6 filming locations, along with some that are rumored to be filming locations, can be seen at the bottom of this article.
Scream 6 is coming to us from the same creative team as the sequel that was released earlier this year: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett will be directing from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. This one will show us what happens when
the four survivors of the Ghostface killings leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter.
Those four survivors are the Scream 2022 characters played by returning stars Melissa Barrera (as Samantha Carpenter), Jasmin Savoy Brown (as Mindy Meeks-Martin), Mason Gooding (as Mindy’s brother Chad Meeks-Martin), and Jenna Ortega (as Sam’s sister Tara Carpenter). Franchise regular Courteney Cox is reprising the role of Gale Weathers, and Hayden Panettiere is back as her Scream 4 character Kirby Reed. Dermot Mulroney has also been cast in an unspecified role.
Vanderbilt is producing Scream 6 with Paul Neinstein and William Sherak for Project X Entertainment. Original Scream screenwriter Kevin Willamson serves as executive producer alongside Chad Villella, Ron Lynch, Cathy Konrad, Marianne Maddalena, and Spyglass’s Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre.
The first, fourth, and fifth Scream movies are set in the town of Woodsboro, but the franchise previously branched out to the Windsor College campus for Scream 2 and Hollywood for Scream 3.
