“Scream 5” is about go get underway in, with at Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett at the helm, and original cast members Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette all reprising their roles from the Wes Craven-directed quadrilogy. As expected, there’s some fresh blood being injected into the Spyglass-housed reboot with a couple of those actors being announced over the past few days.
“You” actress Jenna Ortega and Melissa Barrera, of “In the Heights”, have joined the cast. No word on their characters yet.
There’s also a credible new rumor suggesting actress and musician Selena Gomez has joined the cast. Eagle-eyed readers have noticed that most of the “Scream 5” cast have started following the former “Hotel Transylvania” star on Instagram with commenting on the latter’s latest post with, “can’t wait to meet you.”
