Rande Iaboni is the writer of ‘Scream 5’: Everything We Know About the Anticipated New Sequel, He is excited about the new sequel and he is expecting some good scares. 

“As customary with any Scream entry, a crop of up-and-coming teen stars have been cast as Ghostface’s latest victims,” Laboni says. “New cast members include Jack Quaid as Richie, Melissa Barrera as Sam, Jenna Ortega as Tara, Dylan Minnette as Wes, Jasmin Savoy Brown as Mindy, Mason Gooding as Chad, and Mikey Madison as Amber.” 

The up-and-coming teen actress Jenna Ortega is excited to play her new role as Tara in the new installment to the Scream franchise. She is also excited to be working with the OG cast members. 

“This is a dream come true,” newcomer Ortega said, while in North Carolina for pre-production on the film. “How incredible that we have the main cast coming back, that is insane,” 

Reporter and reviewer Brian Tallerico expresses how he feels about the Halloween Kills movie in his Halloween Kills Review. “Halloween Kills keeps pulling the movie away from the story of a bogeyman who came to life and became something else entirely.”

Actress Andi Matichak made her first appearance as Allyson on Halloween (2018), she played the daughter of Karen and the granddaughter of Laurie. Andi is extremely excited to be playing Allyson again and says that her character stepped up as a woman in the new installment of the franchise. 

“The film goes from 100% to 500%, it’s intense and engaging, it’s an avalanche once it gets going. I love it and I’m so lucky to be a part of the family here on set.” 

The Scream Queen herself actress Jamie Lee Curtis plays Laurie Strode, the main character throughout the entire Halloween Franchise. She has elaborated that she is extremely happy to be making another movie and that she thinks all the Halloween fans are going to love the new movie. 

“It’s the fact that I got to play a character that wasn’t me, wasn’t thrilling to me, wasn’t anything like me is why I have stuck around all these years.”

As the infamous words from the Scream and Halloween franchises say, Hello Sidney, it’s an honor. Hello Michael.
