Neve Campbell is well-known for her work in drama and horror. Campbell shot to worldwide fame as Sidney Prescott in Wes Craven’s horror flick Scream. After exiting Scream 6, Neve recently revealed her potential future comeback to the franchise.
Sidney Prescott, played by Neve Campbell, may not return for Scream 6. Her future with the series, however, remains unknown. “I don’t know that I’m done for good,” the actress tells People in a chat surrounding her partnership with the American Red Cross.
“It would really depend on what they came to me with next. It would have to be different. It would have to be a different attitude, and I’m not sure that’s going to happen.”
In June, Campbell made the “difficult” choice to leave her final-girl role in the slasher saga, which was originally directed by Wes Craven. She released a statement saying: “I felt the offer that was presented to me did not equate to the value I have brought to the franchise.”
“If they came to me with a number that felt right, that felt respectful, that felt in keeping with my value that I brought to the franchise, I’d be willing to consider [returning in the future].”
“I don’t believe it’s dead in the water, but we’ll see. But honestly, I’m really okay. I’ve been able to let it go. I wish them well. I’m doing three different shows right now. I’m very, very grateful that I’m working. I’m happy. So all is good.”
When asked why she opted to issue a statement regarding her departure, Campbell says that it was partly because her fans “have been so committed and supportive that I felt that I owed them an explanation as to why I wasn’t going to be there, because I knew it’s not just about me.”
“At the same time, I think it’s important that we all stand up for ourselves and that we all feel good about the way we’re being treated. I didn’t want to make it a big political thing. I wish the actors and the directors well. I care for them. I’m sad to not be with them. I hope they had a good experience on this one. I don’t want there to be bad blood.”
Campbell shared that she feels the Scream franchise would survive without her involvement, “I’m sure people will still go see it. People love these movies. I’m not the only reason that these films are successful. In no way do I believe that. As I said, I hope for the cast and for the directors — because they have worked really hard and care deeply about these movies — I hope they’ve enjoyed the experience and that it will be positive for them,” she added.
Campbell has appeared in all five films of the popular horror franchise. In June, she issued a statement expressing her very difficult decision not to return for the next installment. Let’s see whether we get to see her in the movie. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
