Kevin Williamson announced the end of filming of Scream 5 on his social media. Kevin who wrote the original films and is an executive producer on the new one also revealed the official title for the 5th installment, which is… Scream.
That’s a wrap on Scream, which I’m excited to announce is the official title of the next film! Nearly 25 years ago, when I wrote Scream and Wes Craven brought it to life, I could not have imagined the lasting impact it would have on you, the fans. (1/3) pic.twitter.com/RCuhVUclG4
