Scream 7 Brings Back Long-Time Star Neve Campbell After Skipping Last Movie

[adinserter block=”1″]

Scream franchise star Neve Campbell is set to reprise her iconic role as Sidney Prescott in the upcoming seventh installment of the series. The announcement came via Campbell’s Instagram on Tuesday, where she expressed her excitement and gratitude for the opportunity.

“It’s always been such a blast and an honor to get to play Sidney in the Scream movies,” Campbell wrote. “My appreciation for these films and for what they have meant to me has never waned… Sidney Prescott is coming back!!!” You can check out her full post, including her watermarked copy of the script dated Tuesday, below.

Campbell’s return follows a hiatus from the franchise due to a salary dispute surrounding Scream 6. Kevin Williamson, the original writer behind the Scream franchise, had publicly advocated for a fair compensation package for Campbell–and he will be directing this seventh entry, marking his directorial debut in the series. Like Campbell, Williamson also took to Instagram to celebrate their reunion, writing “I can’t wait to take this journey with Neve and the entire Scream family as we bring back Sidney Prescott.”

Guy Busick, alongside Jared Vanderbilt, takes over the screenwriting duties for Scream 7, while Vanderbilt continues his role as producer alongside William Sherak and Paul Neinstein of Project X Entertainment. Radio Silence, the collective behind the previous two films, will serve as executive producers.

Campbell’s return is one of many recent and public personnel changes with the cast. In November 2023, Melissa Barrera was fired from the movie due to controversial comments on social media. Within 24 hours of that incident, Jenna Ortega announced she was not returning for Scream 7 due to scheduling conflicts with Netflix’s Wednesday.
