Other details of the plot are also kept secret, since only a snippet is given that, according to a summary, the remaining “leave Woodsboro behind and start a new chapter”.

They will return as Kirby Reed along with Hayden Panettiere, who hasn’t appeared in the series since Scream 4.

The 57-year-old actress said: “I don’t know about contracts and where things stand, but I’ll tell you in the script – it’s really good.”

‘You actually have to be killed if you talk about it, so I won’t say anything.’

Paramount and Spyglass confirmed news of the sixth film in a statement in February.

They said: “We are very grateful to the fans around the world who have enthusiastically embraced our film. We can’t wait for audiences to see what Radio Silence, writers Jamie & Guy and Project X have in store for our Woodsboro family.”

Matt and Tyler added, “Working with such a wonderful and talented family of creators – and in the line Wes and Kevin [Williamson] so expertly built – was the thrill of a lifetime and we are so excited to bring the next chapter in the Scream saga to life.

The Wedding Date star hasn’t been in too many horror or scary films over his long career, but he enjoys being a part of them.

In an interview with Spinoff Online when Insidious: Chapter 3 was released, Mulroney revealed his true feelings about jumping into the spooky genre.

“And I’ve put off the pleasure of making a horror film for almost 30 years, so I don’t know what I was thinking,” said the 58-year-old.

The script for the upcoming part seems quite promising and well written.

The horror sequel that fans have been desperately waiting for is slated for release next spring on March 31, 2023.
