‘Scream 7’ Moves Forward With ‘Happy Death Day’ Director Christopher Landon

While fans like myself will always be sad to not have a third movie in the Happy Death Day franchise, there is some good news. Director Christopher Landon will have a chance to show what he can do on a much larger platform as the director of Scream 7. The news was first revealed by Bloody Disgusting and confirmed by THR.

Landon takes over from the Radio Silence duo of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who really brought Scream back to box office prominence by directing the last two movies. So why aren’t they coming back to direct another one? Well, they’re pretty busy with a mystery horror film for Universal that will reunite them with Scream star Melissa Barrera. They will remain aboard the franchise as exec-producers, however, along with the third member of the group, producing partner Chad Villella.

So where does the Ghostface go from here? Perhaps with Scream 7 Neve Campbell can be convinced to come back…and perhaps be under the mask?
