Neve Campbell has revealed she will reprise her role as Sydney Prescott in the new Scream film, the fifth in the horror franchise.
The actress, 46, starred in the first four films, directed by Wes Craven, stalked by killers decked out in a black cloak and the now iconic ghost mask.
The Canadian, who has also starred in Wild Things and Skyscraper, announced her comeback in an Instagram post. Alongside a video of the ghost face, she wrote: “Hello again, Sidney #ImBack,”.
Scream’s official Twitter account confirmed her announcement and welcomed her back, posting: “We always had a thing for ya, Sid! It’s true… Neve Campbell is back to SCREAM.”
