Horror movie fans were pleased when the Scream franchise announced that it would be making a fifth film.

The official title of the fifth instalment went viral when it was revealed to be called Scream – though movie watchers everywhere were disappointed when the franchise missed an opportunity to give the movie a more witty tittle such as '5cream' or even just 'Scream 5'.

Now one of the film's stars Jack Quaid has revealed that the cast and crew had an ongoing joke on set about the title not being called '5cream'.

Quaid explained that he and his co-star Melissa Barrera gave the cast and crew a present when they wrapped up filming – a T-shirt with a ghost face holding five creams.

In a recent Instagram post, The Boys star wrote: "For those disappointed that the new Scream isn't called 5CREAM, THIS was @melissabarreram and I's wrap gift to the cast & crew. Ghost Face holding 5 CREAMS! Five Cream lives on in our hearts! ❤️Art by the wonderful + talented @marty.abbeschneider. 🎨 #Scream #5cream #5Creams".

Scream writer Kevin Williamson recently announced the official film title on Twitter and confirmed that they had finished filming.

He wrote: "That's a wrap on Scream, which I'm excited to announce is the official title of the next film! Nearly 25 years ago, when I wrote Scream and Wes Craven brought it to life, I could not have imagined the lasting impact it would have on you, the fans."

Williamson said that he was excited for fans to get scared once more as they return to Woodsboro – he also thought that Craven would've been proud of the film that he is making.

"I'm thrilled to be reunited with Neve, Courteney, David and Marley, and to be working alongside a new filmmaking team and incredible cast of newcomers that have come together to continue Wes's legacy with the upcoming relaunch of the franchise that I hold so dear to my heart," he added.

Scream will be heading to cinemas in January 2022.
