Neve Campbell has withdrawn from Scream 6: The Final Chapter due to differences over financial recompense. “It’s a difficult decision to make”
The long-running horror franchise’s protagonist, Neve Campbell, will not feature in the upcoming Scream sequel due to a disagreement about her salary. According to a statement she posted on Monday, the offer that was offered to the mainstay of the brand “does not correlate to the value I have brought to the franchise.”
His sadness at not being involved in the creation of the next Scream film was conveyed by Campbell in a statement. “Because I am a woman, I have had to put in a lot of extra effort throughout my career to prove that I am valued, particularly in reference to Scream. My impression is that the offer that was offered to me does not come close to matching the value that I have brought to the brand.”
Campbell recognized that it “has been a very difficult decision to move on” and offered gratitude to the audience for their support. Fans of Scream were addressed with an “I love you” message from her. Thank you so much for all of your support throughout the years. I shall be eternally thankful to both you and your business for everything that they have done for me over the past 25 years.”
Campbell has already opened up about the obstacles she confronts when it comes to earning proper compensation. She and fellow scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis sat together for an interview with Variety. According to Curtis, who starred in the highly popular Halloween flicks, she “didn’t actually make much money off of [the films].” It inspired Campbell to explain her own experiences on Scream 3, noting that although she “did all fine,” she did not receive back end, which is a term that refers to money after a picture produces a profit.
There was “always the promise of the rear end” throughout that time. That becomes buried beneath all the attention and costs and other reasons they say, “Oh no, we actually didn’t make the amount of money that we are stating we earned in all the press, which is dreadful,” which is why it’s so bad.” The Weinsteins were found to be the culprits.”
It was a common refrain from both Campbell and Curtis that women in the horror industry face challenges. Scream’s ex-member said, “We want to make equal.”
In 1996, Campbell made her acting debut in Wes Craven’s Scream, the first chapter of which was released. In the four sequels that followed, she starred alongside newbies Jenna Ortega, Melissa Barrera, and Jasmin Savoy Brown, the most recent of which was Scream 5.
Hayden Panettiere and Courteney Cox, who previously starred as Gale Weathers in the Scream trilogy, are set to reunite in Scream 6, which will mark the return of both actors. According to current plans, it will premiere in theatres on March 31, 2023.
