‘Scream VI’ Featurette Teases Most Ruthless and Relentless Ghostface Yet

A new featurette promoting next week’s release of Scream VI dropped online today, promising “the most ruthless” Ghostface killer yet.

“This Ghostface is the most ruthless, and just killing people for killing’s sake,” says Melissa Barrera, among the interview segments in the promo video. Co-director Tyler Gillett further teases, “There is a relentlessness that is unique to this specific Ghostface.”

The official synopsis: Following the latest Ghostface killings, the four survivors leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter.

The previously released official trailer gave us our first look at returning legacy cast members Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers and Hayden Pantettiere as Kirby Reed, and revealed tons of new footage, including a Ghostface shrine loaded with references to the previous films in the franchise. There is also more from the Halloween-set subway scene featured in the first teaser, this time featuring even more people costumed as horror icons, like Freddy Krueger and Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Hayden Panettiere will make her return to the big screen as “Kirby Reed,” reprising her role from Scream 4 (2011), joining returning cast members Melissa Barrera (“Sam,”) Jasmin Savoy Brown (“Mindy,”) Mason Gooding (“Chad,”) and Jenna Ortega (“Tara”), and legacy cast member Courteney Cox, once again playing Gale Weathers. Samara Weaving (Ready or Not, The Babysitter) and Tony Revolori (Ready or Night) have joined the ensemble cast, along with Dermot Mulroney, Henry Czerny, Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda, and Josh Segarra.

Roger L. Jackson also returns as The Voice of Ghostface.

Directing once again are Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Scream, Ready or Not), with James Vanderbilt (Scream, Murder Mystery) and Guy Busick (Scream, Ready or Not) co-writing the screenplay. Project X Entertainment’s Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein, and William Sherak are serving as producers. Creator Kevin Williamson and the third member of Radio Silence, Chad Villella, are executive producing alongside Spyglass’ Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre, Ron Lynch, Cathy Konrad, and Marianne Maddalena.

Scream VI will arrive in theaters on March 10, 2023.
