In a recent interview with US Weekly, Kevin Williamson, executive producer of the new film and author of the original, explained the choice to remove “5” from the title.
“It simply came to our notice then Scream 5 “Because it’s the fifth,” Williamson explained. “So I think we just dropped that name, but I don’t think they would ever call it serious Scream 5. I do not think anyone wanted to see the number five after something. You should ask them – Paramount or anyone else, but I think you get the 5 and call it Scream [works] because it is brand new. There is the hereditary cast, and how they infuse this new world and there is a whole new generation and a new cast of characters that are a lot of fun. I think it was a great cast. They are an amazing group of kids and young talents and they are very, very good. They fly off the screen, and now our Sidneys and our mature characters entering it are adults. It works really well. “
