Adrian Schiller has died! Adrian Schiller has died!

Scream 7 director Christopher Landon announced his departure from the project, saying, "It was a dream job that turned into a nightmare."

Landon announced the news on his Twitter account, following the controversial firing of Melissa Barrera for her social posts about the Israel-Hamas war and the departure of Jenna Ortega, citing scheduling conflicts.

The statement read as follows:

"I think now is the right time to announce that I officially left Scream 7 weeks ago. This decision will disappoint some and delight others. It was a dream job that turned into a nightmare. And my heart breaks for everyone involved. For everyone. But it's time to move on. I have nothing more to add to the conversation other than to hope that Wes' legacy will flourish and rise above the noise of a divided world. His and Kevin's creation is an incredible thing, and I'm honored to have had even a brief moment to bask in its glow."


Earlier this year, Landon took over directing duties for Scream 7 from the duo known as Radio Silence, as it was learned that the duo would be focusing on Universal monster movies. Radio Silence, consisting of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, directed Scream and Scream 6, which was remade in 2022.

Landon was known as the director behind 'We Have a Ghost', 'Happy Death Day', 'Freaky' and 'Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones'.


Following Barrera's firing, more than 1,300 actors and artists signed a letter condemning what they described as censorship against speaking out on Palestine.

In response to Barrera's firing, Landon posted on Twitter, in a post that was later deleted, "Everything sucks. Stop yelling. This was not my decision to make," he wrote.
