Tony Revolori is heading into uncharted territory in the upcoming film, “Scream 6.”
In a new interview with Insider, the actor, known for his roles in “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and the “Spider-Man” movies, talked about how he landed a role in the iconic slasher franchise.
“It’s funny, I’ve never seen a ‘Scream’ movie,” Revolori said. “Maybe I shouldn’t have admitted it, but let’s go.”
The actor credited his participation in the upcoming sixth installment of “Scream” to Mason Gooding, who joined the franchise as Chad Meeks-Martin in the fifth film, which was released in 2021.
Revolori said that when he got the chance to be a part of “Scream 6,” he talked to his friend Gooding.
“It sold me because it’s such an amazing set, because the directors are amazing and because the producers are great,” Revolori said. “And he wasn’t wrong. I had the best time on set. Everyone, the cast and crew, was incredible.
“It’s a really, really fun script and there are a lot of twists and turns,” he added. “I’m excited for people to see this.”
The next “Scream” movie, helmed by returning directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, will leave the usual setting of Woodsboro, California for New York.
It will follow the four survivors of Ghostface’s murders in the previous film, played by Gooding, Jasmin Savoy Brown (Mindy Meeks-Martin), Melissa Barrera (Sam Carpenter) and Jenna Ortega (Tara Ortega).
“Scream” stars Courteney Cox and Hayden Panettiere will return as Gale Weathers and Kirby Reed, respectively.
Other newcomers to the horror franchise, in addition to Revolori, include Samara Weaving, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Segarra and Liana Liberato.
The release date of “Scream 6” has not been announced yet, but details about the film have been revealed.
In a recent interview for the “20 Questions On Deadline” podcast, Barrera said the film will take place “pretty much right after the last one.”
“Basically, the time that has passed between one film and the other is the time that has passed in ‘Scream’ time,” he said.
In an interview with Collider, Barrera said that having the killer show up in New York is much more “catastrophic.”
“It’s awful, because you also see how, in a city like New York, everyone is doing their own thing and someone is screaming for help, and no one will come to help,” he said. “No one comes to help them, everyone says ‘I’m not into this.’
