Jasmin Savoy Brown pitches Scream 7 on a tropical island, similar to the setting of White Lotus. The Scream franchise primarily takes place in Woodsboro, California. However, Ghostface attacked Sydney Prescott at her college in Ohio and in Hollywood in Scream 2 and Scream 3, respectively. Ghostface also followed Sam and the core four to New York in Scream VI.
In an interview with Screen Rant to promote Scream VI’s digital and home release, Brown pitches a new location for Scream 7. Brown revealed that she would like Scream 7 to take place in Tahiti, Hawaii, or any other tropical island. She explained that she would like them to film at a tropical resort “simply because I want to go there.” Check out Brown’s full quote and interview below:
Jasmin Savoy Brown: I want to see seven in Tahiti, or some island, simply because I want to go there. I want to go somewhere tropical. How about Ghostface is in Hawaii? Oh, no. We have to shoot it at a resort. That sounds terrible. It’s like a White Lotus/Sream crossover.
Should Scream 7 Take The Core Four To A New Location?
Although Scream 7 has not been announced, it seems likely given the success of Scream (2022) and Scream VI. If there is a Scream 7, one of the big questions is whether the core four will return to Woodsboro, stay in New York, or find themselves somewhere else entirely. Part of this could depend on when Scream 7 will be set. If Chad, Mindy, and Tara are still in college, it would make sense to keep them in New York. Another possibility is that Ghostface will draw them back to Woodsboro by killing the family they still have in their hometown.
However, if Scream 7 takes place years later, the core four could be somewhere else entirely and potentially split up after graduating from college. Brown’s pitch of a tropical island resort could be an intriguing possibility because it would isolate them, unable to escape, in an unknown location. Similar to New York, it would also bring countless strangers into the equation.
A tropical resort could also break the trend of Ghostface being a friend of the core four. They could instead be lured or followed to the resort by the killer, making it harder to find a suspect. The duality of a paradise vacation with a mass killing in Scream 7 could add to Scream’s classic self-aware horror tropes and the humor they infuse the franchise with.
