Neve Campbell Says 'It Was Sad' to Leave 'Scream 6' but She 'Couldn't Bear' Feeling 'Undervalued'



Despite a misleading and unreliable tweet stating that Neve Campbell would return for Scream 6, the actress confirms that she is not returning for the sixth installment. In a new interview with PEOPLE, Campbell, 48, opens up about her decision to walk away from the SCREAM franchise she helped build.

The actress says her choice not to sign on to reprise her role as Sidney Prescott for the upcoming film was "truly" just "negotiation" related. "I did not feel that what I was being offered equated to the value that I bring to this franchise, and have brought to this franchise, for 25 years," she told the outlet.

"And as a woman in this business, I think it's really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued," continues Campbell. "I honestly don't believe that if I were a man and had done five installments of a huge blockbuster franchise over 25 years, that the number that I was offered would be the number that would be offered to a man."

"And in my soul, I just couldn't do that," she adds. "I couldn't walk on set feeling that — feeling undervalued and feeling the unfairness, or lack of fairness, around that."

She maintains that "it was sad" for her to not return, telling PEOPLE, "I love these movies. I love Sidney. I love this franchise I'm so grateful for it."

"But at the same time, I really just couldn't bear the idea of walking onto [the sixth film] and feeling undervalued," she said.

Despite her decision not to return to Scream, Neve remains booked and busy: she's currently on Netflix's The Lincoln Lawyer and will appear in the upcoming Peacock series Twisted Metal with Anthony Mackie.

Neve Campbell also chatted with PEOPLE about her new PSA for the American Red Cross.

New allegations regarding Ezra Miller suggest they were running a cult-like sanctuary in Iceland



Miller was said to be renting an Airbnb in Reykjavik that was housing "a menagerie of Icelandic artists, expats, and spiritual confidants whom [Miller had] encouraged to stay there, even though many had their own homes in Reykjavik."

One woman who stayed there in March 2020 called it a "commune."

Rumours swirled because of Miller's "monologues on spirituality and emotional outbursts, as well as their insistence that they possessed supernatural powers, requesting that guests should participate in group meditations."

An 18-year-old musician was not enamoured by this "cult" and realized how manipulative they were after they said she had a perfect womb, that her family was holding her back, and would twist every word of hers.

Sean Bean Says Intimacy Coordinators ‘Spoil the Spontaneity,’ Decries Censorship



Sean Bean says intimacy coordinators “spoil the spontaneity” of shooting a sex scene.
“It would inhibit me more because it’s drawing attention to things. Somebody saying, ‘Do this, put your hands there, while you touch his thing… I think the natural way lovers behave would be ruined by someone bringing it right down to a technical exercise,

Comparing his experience to the raunchy 1993 adaptation of “Lady Chatterly’s Lover,” he starred opposite Joely Richardson.
“‘Lady Chatterly’ was spontaneous. It was a joy. We had a good chemistry between us, and we knew what we were doing was unusual. Because she was married, I was married. But we were following the story. We were trying to portray the truth of what DH Lawrence wrote.”

Bean also decried the censorship of his work at the behest of TV companies or advertisers.
In “Snowpiercer” TV series, where he filmed a scene naked alongside Lena Hall.
The duo become intimate with the aid of a mango.
“I think they cut a bit out actually. Often the best work you do, where you’re trying to push the boundaries, and the very nature of it is experimental, gets censored when TV companies or the advertisers say it’s so much. It’s a nice scene, quite surreal, dream-like and abstract. And mango-esque.”

About intimacy coordinators helping to protect actors in the wake of #MeToo,
“I suppose it depends on the actress. This one [referring to Hall] had a musical cabaret background, so she was up for anything.”

14 Classic Book Adaptations I Would Like To See That Aren’t Jane Austen



5 out of 14.

- 1. Evelina by Frances Burney
"It's fair to say that Frances Burney paved the way for Jane Austen (and then some). She wrote several novels, but Evelina is undoubtedly the most well-known — and yet there's been no adaptation of it. It tells the story of a young woman of dubious parentage named Evelina whose entrance into London society gets her into all kinds of ridiculous, hilarious, and humiliating situations. There's scandal! Romance! Enormous wigs!"

- 3. Emily of New Moon by L. M. Montgomery
"Anne Shirley is a beloved L. M. Montgomery heroine and her story has been adapted multiple times — including a "gritty" version most recently in Netflix's Anne with an E. But a "grittier" story was right there all along in Emily of New Moon! Also set on Prince Edward Island, and also about an orphan girl who loves writing, but both Emily and the book, on the whole, are much darker than Anne and her series — and, some would argue, more interesting. There have been a couple of adaptations of Emily of New Moon in the past, but we're well overdue for a definitive one."

- 5. The Street by Ann Petry
"The Street was an instant bestseller in its time and is an important work in the literary thriller canon. Set in Harlem during World War II, it focuses on a single mother, Lutie Johnson, who is living separately from her husband with her eight-year-old son, Bub, after their marriage falls apart. The people she meets in the apartment building she moves into change the course of her life. It's an intense story that would make an exceptional limited series or movie."

- 9. The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall
"One of the prominent classics that focuses on lesbian love, The Well of Loneliness was once almost turned into a movie starring Emma Thompson, but it never quite got off the ground. The story is about an upper-class woman named Stephen Gordon, who falls in love with a series of other women against the backdrop of the historic events of the early 1900s. "

- 12. The Waiting Years by Fumiko Enchi
"Starting in the late 1800s, and unfolding over several decades and a changing historical backdrop, this would be perfect for an expansive adaptation. The Waiting Years is about the lives and loves (and heartaches) of an upper-class family in Japan, focusing primarily on Tomo, the matriarch who finds a concubine for her husband — one that becomes the first of many."
