READY OR NOT - Samara Weaving

Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett wanted to bring their Ready or Not star Samara Weaving into the Scream franchise, but it is not meant to be for now. Weaving spoke with Collider for a new interview as her next role in Bill & Ted Face the Music is about to hit the big screen, and she said that while she was game for the idea, they weren’t able to work out the scheduling details.

“We were talking about it, but our schedules aren’t gonna work, which is a bummer,” Weaving said. “We talked about it a lot, but unfortunately, because of scheduling, I couldn’t do it. I”ll still be [in Australia], working on Nine Perfect Strangers, so we couldn’t make it work. Traveling is very difficult, these days.”

Weaving has tallied up a hefty genre dose of work on her resume between Ready or Not, The Babysitter, Mayhem, and Ash vs Evil Dead. While she won’t be in Scream 5, those who will include Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Jenna Ortega, Melissa Barrera, and, presumably, Neve Campbell who has been in talks for the film. It is set to begin filming this fall and hit theaters next year.
