According to Production Weekly, a listing of TV and film production breakdowns for the entertainment industry, Scream 6 will be the first in the series not shot in the US.
In 1996, Wes Craven released the original Scream — a surprisingly effective slasher film that spawned four additional sequels: Scream 2 (1997). Scream 3 (2000), Scream 4 (2011), and the 2022 sequel simply titled, Scream.
The latest installment — which made more than $139 million at the worldwide box office — brought back original cast members Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette to the quiet town of Woodsboro, California where a new killer donned the Ghostface mask.
