Neve Campbell gets a higher paycheck in ‘Scream 7’ after speaking out

Neve Campbell, the iconic face behind Sidney Prescott in the Scream franchise, has revealed that Spyglass Media Group has responded to her concerns about pay disparity by offering her a higher salary Scream 7. Following her vocal stance during the Scream 6 negotiations, which led to her departure from the series, Campbell this time expressed her gratitude for the studio’s receptive approach.

In a statement to People magazine, Campbell reflected on her departure from the franchise in June 2022, citing her dissatisfaction with the compensation offered for reprising her role. She claimed that the original offer for Scream 6 did not reflect her contributions to the long-running horror saga and highlighted the challenges she faced as a woman in the industry to establish her worth.

However, when I was approached for negotiations regarding Scream 7, Campbell noted a marked shift in the studio’s attitude, describing initial discussions as “respectful” and “in a place of strength.” Despite setbacks like director Christopher Landon’s departure and the scheduling conflicts that led to Jenna Ortega’s departure, Campbell’s reprise of her iconic role marks a triumphant comeback for the beloved scream queen.

Campbell expressed her satisfaction with the outcome of her negotiations and the studio’s responsiveness, emphasizing the importance of speaking out against the industry’s pay disparity.

“It feels nice to have brought that into the world, that you have been listened to and that you have made a difference in that way. I hope other people get that opportunity too,” says Campbell.
