Radio Silence, the team behind the upcoming movie, have released a statement.

As quoted by Deadline, they said, 'We’re pinching ourselves! It’s hard to express how much the character Sidney Prescott shaped our love of movies and to have the chance to work with Neve is truly a dream come true.'

'It just wouldn’t be a Scream movie without Neve and we’re so excited and honored to join her in Woodsboro.'

While Neve said, 'After spending time speaking with Radio Silence, they have shown such love, respect and admiration for Wes Craven and all that he’s created in the Scream franchise.'

'I am beyond excited to step back into the role of Sidney Prescott and return to Woodsboro.'
