There are some iconic horror franchises that are still thriving, including Halloween and Scream. Halloween Kills is set to be released next October and Scream 5 is about to start production. Both new movies see the return of their "scream queen" leads, Jamie Lee Curtis and Neve Campbell. In fact, the two recently had a chat about their horror history via Variety. At the beginning of the delightful video, Curtis shows off her Michael Myers face mask and it's wildly adorable.
"Ms. Campbell, I think it’s 'winner, winner, chicken dinner,'" Curtis exclaims in the video. "Like, I don’t know what you’re gonna bring out right now, I’m just not sure what you’re gonna answer that with. You know what, I’m not competitive, but I am, so I just kind of think I needed to win this and now that I know that I’ve won it, I think we can begin."
Campbell never ended up whipping out any Scream merch, so Curtis definitely “won” as she had hoped. In fact, Curtis also ended the video by showing off an action figure of her iconic character, Laurie Strode. You can view the mask clip in the post below:
During the chat, 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."
Campbell isn't the only core Scream cast member returning to the franchise. It was recently announced that David Arquette and Courteney Cox would be returning for Scream 5 to play Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers, respectively.0comments
