Plot details are currently underwraps, but Cox recently suggested that the movie would be more than just the fifth film in a long-running series. "It's not Scream 5, this is Scream," she said. "These directors are incredible, they're making it absolutely, it's a new franchise. It's hip, it's scary, it's just a new Scream. It's not a reboot, it's not a remake, it's just a brand new launch. I think it's going to be fantastic."

As well as Scream 5, there are also new entries in the Candyman, Halloween, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre series on the way. Candyman releases in August, while Halloween Kills arrives in October. The ninth Texas Chainsaw movie is also expected soon, but that doesn't have a release date yet.
