According to Variety, the filmmakers are weighing up options following the high-profile exit of Scream 6 leads Jenna Ortega exiting the franchise reportedly due to scheduling conflict with her Netflix hit ‘Wednesday’ and Melissa Barrera being ousted from the sequel by Spyglass Media Group following recent social media posts about the ongoing conflict in Gaza.
Variety reports that the franchise is in a “creative conundrum” and may be considering casting former franchise favorites Neve Campbell, Patrick Dempsey, and Courtney Cox in new roles, as both leads have left the project.
