Has Scream 7 been greenlit?

Scream 7 has officially been greenlit, according to Screen Geek. Sources revealed that the next Scream movie, film number seven, is set to begin shooting later in the year.

The sixth film has not yet been released and will be hitting theatres on March 10, 2023.

Ghostface made his first appearance in 1996 when Scream debuted. He returned for the sequel in 1997, and the third film, Scream 3, came out in 2000.

Over a decade later, in 2011, Scream 4 was released, but the franchise didn’t return until 2022.

One fan wrote: “scream 7 starting filming this year mia goth I will get you in the audition room.”

Hayden Panettiere returns to Scream

Hayden Panettiere, who starred in the 2011 Scream film as Kirby, is reprising her role.

On Monday, March 6, Panettiere told Good Morning America: “When [Scream] popped up and came back around, I was like, ‘I want to be a part of that again,’ because I hoped that Kirby was still alive.”

Also starring in Scream VI is Jenna Ortega, of Wednesday fame, and Melissa Barrera from In The Heights. The two actresses are playing sisters Tara and Sam Carpenter.

The Carpenter sisters, who appeared in the last film, have left Woodsboro behind and are starting a new chapter of their lives in New York City. As expected, Ghostface makes a terrifying reappearance.
