Today is January 14th, 2021, which means that we’ve got precisely 365 days to go before the Scream reboot comes out. The relaunch of the beloved horror franchise had been percolating for a while, but things finally got moving on the production last year. Filming completed back in November, but Paramount has decided to hold off its release until January 2022.
So, the countdown to the movie formerly known as Scream 5 starts here. And to mark the occasion, the franchise’s official Twitter account shared a cool motion poster. “In ONE YEAR, I’ll know where to find you,” reads the caption, written from Ghostface’s creepy POV.

MORE FROM THE WEB
As the title suggests, Scream is taking the 2018 Halloween route when it comes to rebooting a horror franchise. It’s a continuation of previous movies, with Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette returning as Sidney Prescott, Gale Weathers and Sheriff Dewey Riley, respectively. However, it’s also going back to the series’ roots somewhat and will pay homage to the 1996 original. It’ll be set in Woodsboro for one, and set pics confirm that an iconic location features.
But it’s not all about nostalgia. The movie is filled with a talented cast of Scream newcomers including, but not limited to, Jenna Ortega, Melissa Barrera, Jack Quaid, Dylan Minnette, Kyle Gallner and Mason Gooding. Marley Shelton is also reprising her role as Deputy Judy Hicks from Scream 4. With Wes Craven having passed away in 2015, Ready or Not directors Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin are stepping up to take the reins.
We’ve been primed to expect a movie that’s a little less self-aware than Craven’s films but one that nevertheless honors what he created. And we’ll find out how it fares when Scream hits theaters in exactly a year’s time.
