Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are directing a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. This makes it the first entry not to have Craven in the director’s chair after his death in 2015. The New Scream takes place 25 years after the original series of murders ravaged in Woodsboro.
