Deadline has confirmed that actress Melissa Barrera has been dropped from Spyglass Media’s Scream VII.
Sources say that this is due to the reposts in her Instagram stories which have been perceived as anti-Semitic.
There have been screen captures of her IG stories online. See below.
Spyglass Media did not return request for comment.
While there have been no hard castings announced about the film post actors strike, and Christopher Landon is reportedly directing the next installment, we hear that Barrera was set to reprise her role as Sam Carpenter, sister of Jenna Ortega’s Tara Carpenter.
Paramount has been the theatrical distributor of the last two Scream movies, the last one being the highest grossing of all-time stateside with over $108M, and an overall global take of $169M.
