Neve Campbell would return to Scream if she's given a 'respectful offer'.


Neve Campbell isn't ruling out a return to the troubled Scream franchise.

A seventh film in the series was in the works, but was derailed by the departures of Melissa Barrera and co-star Jenna Ortega, plus the lack of a director after Christopher Landon's exit.

A report came out this past November that suggested the studios are hoping to bring Neve Campbell back for Scream 7, and Campbell is open to that under the right circumstances.

"It's sad to me that they're struggling at the moment. I would imagine that the people at the top are spinning a little bit. Trying to make the right decision. I would imagine people want to do the right thing. I would hope," Campbell tells Indiewire in a new chat this weekend. "I love this franchise. I would hope it doesn’t fall apart."

When asked if she would ever return, Campbell had this to say: "Given the right circumstances, yes. I made a statement several years ago, and it was the reason I didn’t do Scream VI at the time. I just really felt the need to stand up and say that I don’t believe I would’ve been treated that way had I been a man carrying a franchise for 25 years. And that still stands."

Campbell exited the franchise back in 2022, just months after Scream 5 revived the movies made famous by Wes Craven, Campbell announced that she wouldn’t be returning for the sixth installment as she felt she wasn’t being paid fairly. Seeing how her character Sidney Prescott was the glue that held the story together, we couldn’t blame Campbell for sticking to her guns. However, as the seventh feature folds in on itself, Campbell may be having a change of heart.
