Scream filmmakers issue spoiler plea on social media – Film News |


The creators of the new “Scream” movie have urged fans not to share spoilers on social media.

The latest film in the horror franchise will be released this week and executive producer Chad Villella and co-director Matt Bettinelli-Olpin have taken to Twitter to send a word of warning to the public.

Matt – who, along with fellow director Tyler Gillett, replaced the late Wes Craven behind the camera for the film – wrote on the social media platform: “Dear friends of Scream,

“As opening day approaches, we would like to ask you a small favor – be kind to your fellow fans and keep the spoilers to yourself. The entire cast and crew have worked so hard over the last two years to keep our many secrets, so everyone can hopefully have the same kind of experience we had when we fell in love with ‘Scream’ – spoiler free.

“We thank you, we love you, and we hope you have as much fun watching the film as we had making it.

“It was an honor.

“#ForWes (sic)”

The new film, which is simply titled “Scream”, sees the return of original actors such as Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox and Neve has compared the project to a return to “summer camp”.

The 48-year-old actress – who will reprise her role as Sidney Prescott – said: “We had a lot of fun on the first one, it was really like being at summer camp and it feels like when we recover together we went back to summer camp.”

Neve also recalled how “Scream” newcomer Melissa Barrera broke down in tears after filming a scene with her and Courteney in the movie.

She said: “It was a really sweet moment, Melissa [Barrera], who is one of the main characters in this movie, she had her first scene with Courteney and me and we started the scene and they said cut and she had tears in her eyes. She started crying.

“I was like, ‘Are you okay?’ And she was so excited to work with us and be a part of the movie that she couldn’t understand it. It was adorable. It was really awesome.”
