Jamaican Super Lotto victor A. Campbell, in keeping with a regional history of concealing one's physical identity in such situations, rocked the franchise's iconic Ghostface look to claim his $158.4 million ($1.17 million in U.S. dollars) winnings earlier this month. Thankfully, he did indeed fully honor the aesthetic with a head-to-toe rendition.
Since discovering he had scored the winning ticket, Campbell told the St. Lucia News, he had been feeling under the weather. "My head hurt me for three days because I was thinking so much," said Campbell, who ultimately made his Scream-assisted claim 54 days after winning. "[Wondering] if what I've been longing for really come true. I had a belly ache for two weeks, sometimes I feel so much pain I forgot that I had won."
First on the post-lotto agenda for Campbell is a new house, the search for which has already started.
Meanwhile, the Scream franchise is currently in the middle of its new life as an MTV-backed TV series. No word yet on whether a future entry in the franchise will up the meta with a nod to Campbell.
Blumhouse Productions boss Jason Blum publicly entertained the idea of reviving the franchise's film division back in September. Bagging the rights to make that happen, however, would likely be a headache.
"To give you some idea, Halloween was in the works with us for four or five years before it evolved, so, there are business obstacles to cross but, in theory, if you said to me, 'Would you like to do a Scream movie?' My answer would be, 'Of course,'" Blum said at the time. "Sadly it doesn't work like that."
