One such theory bouncing around says Randy Meeks, played by Jamie Kennedy in the first three Scream movies, could have faked his death and the actor is getting behind this.
They are making a new Scream. I think this is an interesting angle. And I believe I know why he did it. Who’s on board https://t.co/v4DmWwtKZs

It’s definitely an interesting theory given Randy met his demise in the second film and only made a cameo in the third which seemed to seal his fate. If the films continue the story laid out in the series so far, a plot like this could change the way the first four movies are viewed now.
Bloody Disgusting broke the news yesterday, revealing Gary Barber’s Spyglass Media Group is developing the next film. The reveal follows shortly after previously announced plans for Barber’s group to reboot Hellraiser.
Wes Craven directed all four Scream films prior to his 2015 passing, also producing the second and fourth installments. Kevin Williamson (I Know What You Did Last Summer, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later) penned all but Scream 3. The screenwriter produced instead and Ehren Kruger (The Ring, Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen) wrote the script.
There aren’t many details at the moment but Bloody Disgusting says Williamson hasn’t signed on to write the fifth film as of now. Deadline also confirmed the movie is going ahead, noting it’s unclear whether this will be a prequel, reboot or sequel.
