Scream star Melissa Barrera to reunite with Radio Silence as she will star in their secret monster thriller for Universal Pictures.

Deadline has reported that Melissa Barrera is set to reunite with Radio Silence for an untitled monster thriller set up at Universal.

Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett will direct the project which was scripted by Stephen Shields, with revisions by Guy Busick. Radio Silence started developing the project after the success of last year’s Scream, but when Paramount scrambled to get Scream VI going as quickly as possible, they put it on the back burner. The project has been heating up and the directors have been meeting with talent. Deadline’s report states that it “became evident pretty quickly that Barrera was the perfect fit for the role following two successful shoots with the rising star and offered her the part.” Melissa Barrera has starred in the last two Scream movies as Sam Carpenter.

Melissa Barrera can currently be seen in Scream VI, which has proven to be another big success for the franchise. She will next be seen starring alongside Paul Mescal in a modern musical reimagining of

Carmen. The film was first shown at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2013 and is expected to be released later this year. Speaking of the Universal Monsters, tomorrow will see the release of Renfield, a horror comedy starring Nicolas Hoult as the long-suffering servant of Dracula (Nicolas Cage). He falls in love with Rebecca Quincy, played by Awkwafina, and decides to stand up to Dracula in order to break free from his servitude. You can check out a review of Renfield from our own David Arroyo right here.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7dY23vvk7E
