Neve Campbell’s Net Worth and ‘Scream’ Salary Per Movie
The only thing scarier than Ghostface? The idea of a Scream movie without Neve Campbell, but that’s the reality we face thanks to Paramount and Spyglass Media not receiving $$$$ for her participation in Scream 6.
Neve has just confirmed that she will not be reprising her role as Sidney Prescott in Cry 6 due to failed contract negotiations.
“Unfortunately, I will not be doing the next Scream movie,” Neve said in a statement to Deadline. “As a woman, I’ve had to work extremely hard in my career to establish my worth, especially when it comes to Scream. I felt that the offer presented to me did not match the value I brought to the franchise.
Neve also noted, “It was a very difficult decision to move on. To all my Scream fans, i love you. You have always been incredibly supportive. I will be forever grateful to you and for what this franchise has given me over the past 25 years.”
Needless to say, we hope the studio pulls through and pays Neve fairly since she’s been carrying this franchise for years! Until then, let’s dive deeper into what Scream won, and Neve’s total net worth thanks in part to those iconic movies.

The Scream The franchise made so much money
Deadline reports that the last Scream film (Cry 5) has grossed $140 million worldwide, which is pretty huge considering we’ve been in a pandemic crisis. But that’s only a fraction of the franchise’s total revenue of $740 million.

Here’s what Neve won Scream
Alright, so Neve is correct Scream the salary is not 100% confirmed, but we can make a guess based on what we know. For instance, Forbes reported that Neve co-star Courteney Cox won $1 million for Scream before getting $5 million for Cry 2 and $7 million for Shout 3. I’m going to hope/assume Neve’s earnings were the same, if not more.
Neve also spoke to Variety (in conversation with fellow horror franchise star Jamie Lee Curtis) about his payment on Scream without going into specific numbers. In response to Jamie Lee Curtis saying there was “no profit sharing” and “no back-end” during HalloweenNeve said she “went well” during Cry 3 but there was also “no back-end”.
“There’s always the promise of a back-end. And then, of course, it’s drowned out in the advertising and the costs and all the reasons why they say, ‘Oh, actually no, we don’t have didn’t make the amount of money we claim we made in all the press, so we don’t have to give you that,’ unfortunately. It was the Weinsteins.”
She also noted that “we would like to be equal” to the men who profit from horror franchises, while Jamie Lee Curtis added: “We both worked for many, many years to pursue our careers. At some point , it’s okay to say, “No, I’m going to get paid or I can’t play in your sandbox.”
What is Neve Campbell’s total net worth?
According Celebrity Net Worth, that would be $10 million. Of course, a lot of that comes from the Scream franchise, but let’s not forget that Neve was also in party of fivestarred in a ton of movies (The job, anyone?), and has money tied up in real estate. So yes, she is fine! But also, PAY PARAMOUNT!
