Completing the critical and – to date – commercial success of the release Screaming (or Screaming 5 if you hate putting the year next to the movie name), actors Jenna Ortega had planned to star in another critically-acclaimed film she called “an apology letter” to Gen Z, a school shooting movie called Collapse.
Premiering at last year’s SXSW festival, to much critical acclaim, the film will premiere to general audiences on Thursday via HBO Max.
The film follows two teenage classmates who must deal with the pain and shock of surviving a school shooting.
When asked how Ortega feels about Screaming – was released on January 14th – and Collapse liberated back again, she told The Hollywood Reporter she’s “thrilled” to continue the previous ’90s horror series and is “curious to see” how the latter’s platforming will affect people.
“As far as Collapse Come on, the scenario is very special to me. I love that this is the directorial debut of Megan Park; She wrote the script in exactly two weeks. The dialogues and sequence of events are all very natural and based on Generation Z culture,” she said.
Although the film deals with “a really important, serious, real, and terrifying subject,” Ortega said the filmmakers tried to handle the content “in the most caring way possible.”
“I see the film as an apology letter to this generation and all that our youth have to fear. I’m curious to see how it affects people,” she said.
Screaming Now showing in theaters and you can watch Collapse on January 27 on HBO Max. As far as the future holds, Ortega will also star in The Addams . family spinoff show, led by Tim Burton, called Wednesday, will come to Netflix later this year.
