AceShowbiz – Neve Campbell‘s departure didn’t really affect “Scream VI“. The franchise icon opted not to return to the slasher film series as Sidney Prescott – having reprised her role in last year’s reboot – over issues with her contract offer, and while directors Matt Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett were “bummed” she wasn’t involved, they praised the way writers Guy Busick and James Vanderbilt had “created the structure of the movie.”
“We found out early on in pre-production that Neve wasn’t gonna do this one and there had been drafts and ideas and stuff going around, but the thing that Guy and Jamie did that was so great and really helped us is that they had created the structure of the movie that I don’t think ever really changed much. Stuff like the motives, that shifted, but the movie from kind of a bird’s eye view didn’t change that much,” the duo, who are part of production company Radio Silence, told Collider.
