The majority of passionate, dying-hard Scream franchise supporters are unsure about what they believe was a significant loss to the long-running horror film series. Many people love Randy''s genre, or the comedic appearance of Jennifer Jolie, but a huge amount of the fandom immediately fell for Hayden Panettiere as Kirby Reed 10 years ago (which truly includes us too).
As Scream 6 (official title TBD) prepares for a summer production, a private press release from Spyglass Media Group and Paramount Pictures confirms that Panettiere will reprise to portray the original franchise character with a previously hostile fate.
With a DVD/Blu-ray commentary, Kirby was left for dead by one of the two actors while revealing that she did not survive the events of Scream 4, giving a survivors interview sometime between the events of Scream 4 and Scream 5. A deleted scene from the new movie also included a missing person poster with a sketch of Kirby.
While it''s safe to say that the deleted scene wasn''t an indication of her actual plot, the casting news does not reveal that the Kirby easter egg was not just a great fit for fans without follow-up. Now, the franchise''s future has officially enlisted the survivors of Scream (2022), including Melissa Barrera (Sam Carpenter), Jasmin Savoy Brown, Jenna Ortega, and Patney Cox, who was the first cast member confirmed, and Panettiere, which might result in
All we need is Neve Campbell''s iconic Sidney Prescott to confirm her return, and we''ll have a huge network of slasher survivors.
Scream 6 by Spyglass Media Group and Paramount Pictures is scheduled for a theatrical release on March 23, 2023. Are you ready for Kirby Reed''s return?
