Jenna Ortega will not appear in the seventh part of “Scream”. The actress who played in the last two parts of the horror movie resigned from the film, apparently before Melissa Barrera was fired from the production. If Ortega didn’t leave the film because of the situation with Barrera, why else did she decide to leave?
Melissa Barrera, the star of the last two parts of “Scream” produced by Spyglass Media, will not appear in the seventh installment. Barrera was fired due to her activity on Instagram, where she shared posts about Israel and Palestine. It’s no wonder that when the news that Jenna Ortega had resigned from the production hit the Internet, fans thought it was because of the situation with Barrera. It turns out that the reason is different.
Deadline reports that Ortega’s departure is not related to Barrera’s situation, but to the fact that the actress will be filming the second season of “Wednesday” from April 2024, which will last through the summer.
