Scream 6, which is set in New York City, is deep in production with a huge cast. Among the cast, Dermot Mulroney has been confirmed to be playing a cop in the next installment of the Scream franchise.
Mulroney has recently appeared in horror films Insidious: Chapter 3 and Umma. In regard to his role in Scream 6, Mulroney tells Screenrant that his role has a surprising connection to Ghostface as he loses a family member to Ghostface. “Yeah, I play a cop, so finally they’re asking me to play cops here and there, this is one of them.” He continues, “but I don’t have to describe how or in what way, so that’s what draws me into the story is strong family ties.”
His role as a police officer in the film marks a new step in the franchise as he becomes the first new major officer character following the deaths of both David Arquette’s Dewey and Marley Shelton’s Judy Hicks. The role of Mulroney’s daughter in the film has yet to be announced.
