Samara Weaving & Tony Revolori Join Scream 6 Cast

The iconic slasher franchise returns next year with the cast moving to New York as Ghostface slashes his way through the Big Apple. And despite production being underway, two new cast members have signed on to appear in Scream 6.

As reported by Bloody Disgusting, Samara Weaving (Ash vs Evil Dead, The Babysitter, Ready or Not) and Tony Revolori (Spider-Man: No Way Home) have both signed on to star in the upcoming horror. Although the full cast has not been revealed Weaving and Revolori will join legacy cast members Courteney Cox & Hayden Panettiere as well as new cast member Dermot Mulroney and the survivors of Scream 5 Jenna Ortega, Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding.


Unfortunately Neve Campbell will not be returning for this film due to an issue regarding her pay. Despite rumours recently surfacing online that she has secretly signed on, the actress has not said anything official since her announcement back in June.

“Sadly I won’t be making the next Scream film. As a woman I have had to work extremely hard in my career to establish my value, especially when it comes to Scream. I felt the offer that was presented to me did not equate to the value I have brought to the franchise. It’s been a very difficult decision to move on. To all my Scream fans, I love you. You’ve always been so incredibly supportive to me. I’m forever grateful to you and to what this franchise has given me over the past 25 years.”

Having worked with Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett previously on the horror comedy Ready or Not, the actress revealed they originally approached her for a role in the previous film. As Weaving told Collider back in 2020, scheduling issues got in the way.

“We were talking about it, but our schedules aren't gonna work, which is a bummer. We talked about it a lot, but unfortunately, because of scheduling, I couldn't do it. I'll still be [in Australia], working on Nine Perfect Strangers, so we couldn't make it work. Traveling is very difficult these days.”

In the next instalment, opening on March 31, 2023; the four survivors of the Ghostface killings leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter.
