Christopher Landon parted ways with Scream 7 following the footsteps of Jenna Ortega and Melissa Barrera.

On Sunday, the director shared that he officially left Scream 7 a couple of weeks ago.

He shared that the blockbuster sequel was his “dream job” that turned into a nightmare

Taking to X on December 23, the Happy Death Day director penned, “I guess now is as good a time as any to announce I formally exited Scream 7 weeks ago. This will disappoint some and delight others. It was a dream job that turned into a nightmare. And my heart did break for everyone involved. Everyone. But it’s time to move on.”

Christopher continued, “I have nothing more to add to the conversation other than I hope Wes’ legacy thrives and lifts above the din of a divided world. What he and Kevin created is something amazing and I was honored to have even the briefest moment basking in their glow.”

In October, the Freaky filmmaker faced criticism when Spyglass, the studio behind the Scream movies, fired one of the leading characters Melissa Barrera.

On November 21, Christopher posted, “This is my statement: Everything sucks. Stop yelling,” he later deleted the post and said, “This was not my decision to make.”

A couple of days later news broke out that Jenna, who played the main lead role in the previous two Scream movies, will not be a part of the seventh installment.

After Christopher left, the fate of Scream 7 now depends on James Vanderbilt, the writer-producer who co-wrote the previous two movies.
