The announcement of Scream 7’s new director suggests that the upcoming installment in the satirical slasher franchise will bring back a classic part of Wes Craven’s original movies. Scream 7’s new director is Christopher Landon, who is best known for helming the horror-comedy films Happy Death Day and Freaky. Landon is taking over the reboot sequel reins from Scream (2022) and Scream VI’s Radio Silence co-directors Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, whose “re-quels” proved to be box office and critical hits for Paramount. Details about Scream 7’s story, cast, and release date are still under wraps, but Landon’s inclusion implies big changes for the upcoming sequel.
