Actress Neve Campbell has shared more details about her choice to not star in Scream 6. As Deadline previously announced, Campbell is not interested in returning to the horror movie franchise Scream — and her reason was not simply wanting to move on to other projects. Instead, a lot of shade was thrown. Well, the Scream star is not done sharing why she’s over the franchise.
Scream 5, the fifth movie in the slasher movie series, had all fans super excited. The movies are horror favorites, and we were looking forward to catching up with Sidney Prescott (Campbell), Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), and Dewey Riley (David Arquette). The movie earned a worldwide total of $140 million worldwide. After its theater release, the movie became available to stream on Paramount+ platform. The service is also home to all other Scream movies. And the franchise is not done! But it may have to continue without its main star, Neve Campbell.
Why is Neve Campbell not going to be in Scream 6?
People reports that Campbell has once again opened up about why she’s not going to star in Scream 6. According to the source, Campbell believes that “as a woman in business,” she needs to “fight to be valued,” which she didn’t feel she was when offered to star in the sixth movie.
Campbell shares that she didn’t feel the offer for Scream 6 represented the value she brings to the franchise, and has brought for over two decades. The actress comments that if she were a man, the amount offered would have been a lot higher.
Up next for the star, is Peacock‘s upcoming Twisted Metal in a recurring role. Anthony Mackie, Stephanie Beatriz, and Thomas Haden Church will also star. Most recently, Campbell can be seen in Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer. Outside of the Scream franchise, where do you know Campbell from?
