The ‘Scream’ franchise is one of the most beloved series in all of horror cinema. The cheeky take on the classic slasher movie has seen its star-studded cast return for five sequels. Sadly, the sixth won’t feature Neve Campbell.
Campbell recently announced that she was leaving the franchise and would not appear in the upcoming Scream 6. Neve said that she felt she was being underpaid for her work in the movies. Therefore, she is walking away.
‘Scream’ co-star David Arquette recently addressed Neve Campbell’s departure. Arquette spoke to ComicBook.com about his thoughts on the situation. While David understands her reasons, he said she would be welcomed back for future installments if the business side can be worked out.
“I’d love for her to be a part of it. A Scream movie without Sidney is kind of unfortunate, but I understand her decision. It’s all a business in a way, they have to balance all these elements to fit a budget and produce a film.
I get it, she’s still alive! She [can] absolutely be in future ones, but I think it’s up to fans to call for that in the future. […] That is sudden, it’s a business, though. I respect her decision, for sure.”
Neve Campbell’s Sidney is one of the key characters in the franchise. Fans will be disappointed to not see her in the upcoming sequel. David Arquette gets it but thinks there’s always room to make things right in the future.
