Neve Campbell announces ‘very difficult decision to move on’ from ‘Scream’ franchise after salary dispute

Neve Campbell won't be playing Scream's original victim, Sidney Prescott, in next year's Scream 6.

"Sadly, I won't be making the next Scream film," Yahoo Entertainment confirmed that she said, as first reported by Deadline. "As a woman I have had to work extremely hard in my career to establish my value, especially when it comes to Scream. I felt the offer that was presented to me did not equate to the value I have brought to the franchise. It's been a very difficult decision to move on. To all my Scream fans, I love you. You've always been so incredibly supportive to me. I'm forever grateful to you and to what this franchise has given me over the past 25 years."
