Scream’s First Trailer Reminds Us Why We Love to Fear Ghostface

Scream 5 Trailer: Neve Campbell, Ghostface in Horror Reboot

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, co-director Gillet explained that keeping the killer’s (or killers’, since we know how sneaky the Scream movies can be about stuff like that) identity a secret was priority number one, even on set. “We were really careful to protect the big reveal of the movie,” he said. “We went as far as to withhold those moments in the script from the actors. We wanted everybody involved, to the degree that we could, to be a part of the whodunit. Obviously, you get to a point in the shoot where you have to let the cat out of the bag, but we went pretty far into prep and into production with a surprising amount of secrecy maintained.”

Scream—which, yes, is technically Scream 5, but it’s just titled Scream the way David Gordon Green’s Halloween was just Halloween—stars series OGs Neve Campbell (Sidney Prescott), Courteney Cox (Gale Weathers), and David Arquette (Dewey Riley), along with Marley Shelton (who played a cop in Scream 4). New faces include Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sonia Ammar, Jack Quaid, and Melissa Barrera. Original Scream screenwriter Kevin Williamson is also aboard as an executive producer, and it’ll be out January 14.
