The fifth Scream film is set to relaunch the series, with original cast members Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette returning.

The film will release on the 14th of January next year and will be the first film in the franchise not directed by Wes Craven, who died in 2015.

The meta slasher franchise is set to be relaunched for a new generation with new cast members such as Jack Quaid, Jenny Ortega, Dylan Minnette and Mason Gooding.

The trailer opens with Jenny Ortega recreating the iconic Drew Barrymore opening scene from the original 1996 Scream film.

Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette also feature as their original characters.

The film, simply titled Scream, is from the Ready or Not film-makers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. Original writer Kevin Williamson is also onboard as executive producer.

“The idea of making these films without Wes Craven seemed challenging to me,” said Campbell. “I loved the man very much. But Matt and Tyler wrote me a letter, speaking of their appreciation and great respect for Wes Craven, and speaking of the fact that the very reason that they are directors today was because of these movies and because of Wes, and that meant a great deal to me.”

Gillett has said that the identity of the killer was shrouded in so much secrecy that many cast members were kept in the dark through most of the shoot. “We were really careful to protect the big reveal of the movie,” he said. “We went as far as to withhold those moments in the script from the actors. We wanted everybody involved, to the degree that we could, to be a part of the whodunnit.”

This is the first instalment in the Scream franchise since 2011 and has so far opened to a positive reaction from fans.
