Scream 5 is being helmed by Ready or Not directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. In a recent interview, Campbell revealed that she decided to do Scream 5 after the directors reached out in a special way.
"They actually wrote me a letter and they said they basically are directors because of these films," she explained. "They are directors because of Wes Craven and they’re really so excited to be a part of these films and what an honor it is to do them, and that they really want to do justice to Wes and honor his legacy."
In addition to the three original cast members, Scream 5 will also feature Marley Shelton, who played Deputy Judy Hicks in 2011's Scream 4. In addition to Quaid,franchise newcomers include Jenna Ortega, Kale Gallner, Dylan Minnette, Mike Madison, Mason Gooding, Melissa Berrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar.
