    Neve revealed to Deadline that she was departing the long-running franchise after salary negotiations fell through. “As a woman, I have had to work extremely hard in my career to establish my value, especially when it comes to Scream,” she said. “I felt the offer that was presented to me did not equate to the value I have brought to the franchise.”

    She also referred to her choice to step away as a "difficult decision." "To all my Scream fans, I love you," she added. "You’ve always been so incredibly supportive to me. I’m forever grateful to you and to what this franchise has given me over the past 25 years."

    Emma Roberts — who starred in Scream 4 back in 2011 — also commented on Neve's departure. "Someone just sent me that last night, and I was like, 'This can't be real news. Like, this has to be fake!'" she said. "I mean, she's queen. That's all I have to say."

    That's real. Hopefully, our Scream queen can get the respect she deserves and return for a future installment — the franchise just won't be the same without Sidney.
