I don’t know. Who knows, what are they gonna do? Is it a whole new franchise? Are they going to bring back some [characters]. Oh it would be exciting! I love playing Dewey so I would always love to be a part of it.
Currently, Scream Queen Neve Campbell is in ”negotiations” for a fifth ‘Scream’ movie.
The 46-year-old actress is set to reprise her role as Sidney Prescott in a new installment of the slasher film franchise.
Campbell said that the project is currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The conversations are being had, that’s for sure. There was a lot of talk about it. I wasn’t sure it was going to happen and I was approached six weeks ago, but the timing’s not great right now, obviously. We’re starting conversations, we’re starting negotiations, but who knows how and when studios are going to open again. The directors want to honour the work of original filmmaker Wes Craven and they have great respect for him. So that’s really lovely.
