Neve Campbell Says Studio Stepped Up Her Pay For ‘Scream 7’ After She Spoke Out

“I thought, ‘I don't know what respectful looks like to them. We might be in very different places.’ But they started out in a strong place" with a salary offer.

“I just really felt the need to stand up and say that I don’t believe I would’ve been treated that way had I been a man carrying a franchise for 25 years,” she said in the lead up to the sixth film, in which she did not participate. The new Scream project has been in the news in recent months after star Melissa Barrera was let go because of comments she made on social media about the conflict between Israel and Hamas. Campbell, the original Scream lead, did not appear in last year’s sixth movie of the franchise because of a pay dispute.
