The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the upcoming Scream reboot will be fronted by 'Ready or Not' directors Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.
The filmmakers directed last year's cult horror hit Ready or Not. The two along with colleague Chad Villela are known as the collective horror filmmaking group called Radio Silence. Villela will act as one of the producers on Scream.
Spyglass Media is reportedly behind the project. The company was formed a year ago with former MGM head Gary Barber and Lantern Entertainment co-presidents Andy Mitchell and Milos Brajovic. Lantern had the rights to Scream when it took control of film and TV assets from the Weinstein Co. in a bankruptcy sale in 2018.
Radio Silence's Ready or Not mixed horror and comedy to great effect, with the biting bloody movie proving to be a hit with critics and audiences, grossing an impressive $57 million at the worldwide box office on a $6 million budget.
