Off the back of their success with Scream VI (which set a franchise opening record at the box office), you might think that the Radio Silence film collective, including directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett plus producer Chad Villella, would be sticking with Paramount and Ghostface. But they're spinning that success into the chance to a new, secret monster movie for Universal.

According to Deadline, this is something the trio has been wanting to make since their first stab at Scream, but the success of that movie led them to put it hold to focus on the sequel. Now, they're shifting back to the monster movie.

There are zero details about the new movie, save that it'll offer a fresh take on one of Universal's classic creatures. The script originated with Stephen Sheilds, and has since seen revisions by Scream co-writer Guy Busick.

Hopefully this one will be as entertaining as the likes of The Invisible Man and the upcoming Renfield, which brings gory horror-comedy to screens this week.
