Radio Silence Reportedly Not Directing ‘Scream 7’; Christopher Landon in Talks?

The filmmaking team known as Radio Silence (V/H/S, Southbound, Ready or Not) brought Ghostface back to life with hit sequel Scream back in 2022, and this year they returned to the director’s chairs to continue the saga with Scream VI. The franchise’s sixth installment was another hit at the box office, ensuring that a seventh movie won’t be far behind.

While Scream VII hasn’t yet been officially announced by Paramount and Spyglass, we can confirm that it’s definitely in the works. We’ve also been paying close attention to the recent rumors that Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett won’t be back to direct Scream VII, and that Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day, Freaky) may take over.

How true are those rumors? We’re told Radio Silence was very interested in directing Scream VII but unfortunately they’ve been busy with their upcoming Universal Studios monster movie, which was recently filming under a shroud of secrecy. The mysterious project doesn’t yet have an official plot synopsis at this time, and it doesn’t even have an official title.

It’s likely that with the Radio Silence team focusing on their Universal monster movie, the scheduling ultimately just didn’t work out for them to return for Scream VII.

As for the Christopher Landon rumors, Bloody Disgusting has heard that Landon has indeed been in talks to direct Scream VII, and we’ll keep you posted as we learn more.

The ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes have halted productions across Hollywood at this time, so it may be a while before production on Scream VII actually gets underway.

Stay tuned…

Scream VI is now available on 4K, Blu-ray, and Digital.
