After the success of the fifth Scream film earlier this year, Paramount quickly announced that a sixth installment would be going into production. The new film was initially scheduled for a March 31, 2023 release date. However, this date has now been changed, with the film hitting theaters even earlier than expected. Now fans can expect the release date for Scream 6 to hit three weeks sooner.
Specifically, the new release date for Scream 6 is set for March 10, 2023. Furthermore, Paramount also switched around the release date for their upcoming film Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. Now that particular film will be released on March 31, 2023 as opposed to its initial March 3, 2023 release date. As such, it’s exciting to see that Scream 6 is coming together so well that the release date was moved ahead. Hopefully it won’t be much longer before the promotional campaign for the highly-anticipated sequel begins.
The highly-anticipated sequel Scream 6 was directed by 2022 Scream directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett of Radio Silence. James Vanderbilt & Guy Busick also returned to write the screenplay. Scream creator Kevin Williamson executive produced alongside Radio Silence member Chad Villella. Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre of Spyglass were also attached as executive producers.
Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, and Dermot Mulroney will all star in the new film. Additionally, the cast for Scream 6 includes Samara Weaving, Tony Revolori, Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda, Josh Segarra, and Henry Czerny. Courteney Cox will reprise her role as Gale Weathers for the upcoming film while Hayden Panettiere will return as Kirby Reed for the first time since Scream 4.
Fans will be able to see Scream 6 in theaters on March 10, 2023. Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for additional updates on the highly-anticipated film as we have them. At least for now, fans can look forward to seeing Scream 6 in theaters a little earlier than before.
