Fans Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Reacting To The Scream 7 Drama, And They Are Merciless

  • 4 months ago
"Scream" proved why it’s considered one of the best horror franchises after Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett took over for the late Wes Craven and successfully rebooted the series with Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega as its new stars. "Scream 7" is even in the works as what was supposed to be a third movie centered around the Carpenter sisters; however, the production hit a bit of a speed bump, losing both actresses in less than a week. Fans of the franchise were understandably rocked by the news, and their reactions continue to be as brutal as any of the Ghostface killers’ slaughters.

It was reported on November 21 that Melissa Barrera was out of the slasher franchise after playing Sam Carpenter in 2022’s "Scream" and this year’s "Scream VI." Production company Spyglass Entertainment reportedly fired Barrera after she made social media comments that were seen as anti-semitic. Then, on November 22, Jenna Ortega — who played Sam’s little sister Tara Carpenter — dropped out of "Scream 7," allegedly due to scheduling conflicts. That makes quite a mess of the movie, and even its new director Christopher Landon agreed that “Everything sucks.”
