The Boys actor Jack Quaid has been cast in the upcoming Scream reboot from Paramount and Spyglass Media.

This will mark the fifth instalment in the cult scary movie franchise, which is currently scheduled for release in cinemas from January 14, 2022.


Courteney Cox and David Arquette will be reprising their respective roles as Gale Weathers and Dewey Riley, while Neve Campbell is reportedly also ‘in talks’ to return as Sidney Prescott. It’s unclear at the time of writing who exactly Quaid will be playing.

Quaid’s casting has been reported by Variety, however details about his character have not yet been released.

Filming is expected to start later on this year in Wilmington, North Carolina. This will be the very first Scream title not to be directed by the late Wes Craven, who sadly passed away in 2015. Ready or Not filmmakers Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett will be taking up directing duties.
