Neve Campbell out of Scream 6: the actress explains the reasons
Asked by Deadline, Neve Campbell explained why she will not be in the cast of the next Scream 6 , arriving in theaters in spring 2023 (unless this surprising decision does not slow down the processing, due to inevitable changes to the script). The reason, she seems to understand her from her words, is essentially economic : the figures are not revealed, but a star so iconic for a brand like Scream is in her full right to assert herself. Here are the precise words of Neve:
Sadly I won’t be doing the next Scream . As a woman I have to work very hard in my career to establish my worth, especially when it comes to Scream. The offer they presented to me for me did not equal the value I have always brought to the franchise. Moving on was a very difficult decision . To all my Scream fans I want to say: I love you . You have always supported me a lot. I will always be grateful to you and what this saga has given me over the past twenty five years.
The latest Scream of 2022 grossed $ 140 million worldwide at a cost of just $ 24, low by Hollywood standards but higher than the average budget for an indie horror. Neve Campbell also played Sidney Prescott in the original Scream (1996), Scream 2 (1997), Scream 3 (2000) and Scream 4 (2011). His absence from the future of the series will pose a significant challenge to its new writers.
