Neve Campbell Talks Returning to the SCREAM Franchise and Is “Grateful They Came Back to Me in a Respectful Way” — GeekTyrant

Neve Campbell is set to return to the Scream franchise in a big way with the next film in the franchise, Scream VII, which is being helmed by franchise creator Kevin Williamson.

Campbell was absent from Scream VI because she felt disrespected by the offer that the studio made her. She explained that as “a matter of principle” she turned the offer down.

Now the tune has changed, and Campbell is saying that she is “really grateful that they came back to me in a respectful way.”

While attending the return of Reefer Madness: The Musical in Los Angeles on May 30, the actress opened up about the franchise and how “those movies have been such a big part of my life and it means so much to me, and I was sad to miss the last one, to not be a part of it.”

She went on to say: “I was really grateful that they came back to me in a respectful way. I think that means a lot to women and to society. I’m grateful to be able to step in into Sidney’s shoes again and tell her story.”

Campbell also talked about her character Sidney Prescott saying that she has “inspired a lot of people. I meet a lot of fans who say her strength has helped them get through tough times, and it means more than I could ever have imagined to some people.”

When she shared she was coming back for Scream VII, she excitedly said: “Hi All. I’m so excited to announce this news!!! Sidney Prescott is coming back!!!! It’s always been such a blast and an honor to get to play Sidney in the Scream movies.

‘“My appreciation for these films and for what they have meant to me, has never waned. I’m very happy and proud to say I’ve been asked, in the most respectful way, to bring Sidney back to the screen and I couldn’t be more thrilled!!! Well actually I could.

“While I’ve been so incredibly lucky to make these films with both the master of horror Wes Craven and the wonderfully talented Matt and Tyler team, I’ve dreamt for many years of how amazing it would be to make one of these movies with Kevin Williamson at the helm. And now it’s happening, Kevin Williamson is going to direct Scream 7!

“This was his baby and it’s his brilliant mind that dreamt up this world. Kevin is not just an inspiration as an artist but has been a dear friend for many years. To the amazing Scream fans, I hope you are as excited as I am. See you on set @kevwilliamson.”

The script for Scream VII is written by Guy Busick, from a story that he came up with with James Vanderbilt, who will continue to produce Scream 7.
