If you’re like us and dying (probably shouldn’t have used that word) to know what happens in Scream VI, you might want to take a stab at scoring some new material for your personal Ghostface shrine while you’re at it. Well, you’re in luck. All you have to do is purchase tickets to see the latest sequel in 3D at the Fan Event Screening on March 9, and you can score a limited edition collector’s print from designer Doaly.
The artwork features what we’re going to call a game of “spot the Ghostface” in an elaborate Times Square scene that features digital billboards tailored to this franchise, specifically. One of those faux ads has tons of people talking: the logo for “Stab: The Musical.” Which, actually, got us thinking: Why not? It’s a perfect idea for this movie, considering Scream 2‘s first kill was at an opening weekend showing of the original Stab. So, it makes complete sense to do something to further that tradition, one way or another. Some unsuspecting ticket holder could wind up as part of the big production. Or! The cast would, theoretically, already be on stage so…
Not to mention, as we all know, the original sequel featured Sidney Prescott in a play at Windsor College. So, if the theme of Scream VI continues to basically be, “let’s make everything big,” then the obvious throwback to that would, naturally, be a Broadway musical. Put that all together, and no matter how you slice it, this little detail in the latest poster just fits.
Honestly, if you’re not completely here for it, do you even get the fun part of these movies?
So, here are just a few creative ideas/dreams for “Stab: The Musical.” First off, this thing absolutely needs to include “Red Right Hand” (how could it not?) and, really, as many songs from the ’90s as possible. Next, there’s no need to hire an outside choreographer — Jenna Ortega is already in Scream VI, and she did one hell of a job on her dance scene in Wednesday. But if she’s a bit too busy already (because of, you know, trying to survive a horror sequel), I could totally see this thing kicking ass with some Gaga (no relation to Lady).
Who should write “Stab: The Musical”? Well…there’s no need for us to brainstorm this one because the fans have got us covered.
Then, there’s the issue of casting. If we really want to get meta AF, which we do, we can always drop a Neve Campbell mention. I hear she’d make a great Sidney Prescott. Bonus: Campbell has dance background. (Which is the type of thing I, pearsonally, will never shut up about.) Maybe the imaginary creatives behind the musical would want to get clever and mix it up and have her play someone else, though. So, if we think along those lines, Gale, maybe?
Also, we may as well bring some Broadway legends into this while we’re at it. In that vein, let’s go big or go home, folks.
For everyone else, our suggestion is essentially “get even more ridiculous than Scream 3. While you’re at it, go hard on the comedy that most viewers didn’t seem to appreciate at the time,” if you will. Since there’s is literally no way to mess this up — aside from teasing it and then refusing to deliver, that is — just pick names out of a hat, for all we care. With all that being said, we’re not the only ones invested in this bad boy.
So, with that in mind, we want to hear from you. Who would you cast in “Stab: The Musical”? What’s your dream cast? Music choices? Leave us a comment!
And remember: If you want that limited edition poster, run (up the stairs, when you should be running out the front door) and order those tickets to the Scream VI Fan Event Screening. This masterpiece is only available while supplies last. You’re going to see the movie anyway. May as well see it early and grab a collector’s item while you’re at it. (But if you spoil it for the rest of us, we are not responsible for what Ghostface does.)
The Scream VI Fan Event Screening for all of is diehards is on Thursday, March 9 at 5:00 p.m. For everyone else, the official release is March 10. Tickets are on sale now.
