Scream’s Neve Campbell Further Explains Why She Passed On The Upcoming Sixth Movie

The horror genre has been truly thriving over the last few years, with fans enjoying a thrilling renaissance of new and old properties. Some of the best horror movies returned to theaters with new sequels, including the beloved slasher scream. And franchise star Neve Campbell has further explained why she passed on playing Sidney Prescott in the upcoming sixth movie.

The fifth scream movie was a box office and critical success when it hit theaters back in January, resulting in Paramount quickly green lighting another sequel from filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. This news was thrilling for fans, although they were disappointed that Neve Campbell won’t be returning to play her signature role. She previously revealed it was due to a pay dispute, and spoke more about this decision during an interview with people. as the craft icon shared:

I did not feel that what I was being offered equaled to the value that I bring to this franchise, and have brought to this franchise, for 25 years.And as a woman in this business, I think it’s really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued. I honestly don’t believe that if I were a man and had done five installations of a huge blockbuster franchise over 25 years, that the number that I was offered would be the number that would be offered to a man. And in my soul, I just couldn’t do that. I couldn’t walk on set feeling that — feeling undervalued and feeling the unfairness, or lack of fairness, around that.
