Courteney Cox Will Return as Gale Weathers in ‘Scream’ Reboot

Courtney Cox is back for Scream 5

The actress, as well as Spyglass Media Group and Paramount Pictures, announced on Friday that she would be reprising her role as news reporter Gale Weathers. Cox took on the role originally in the 1996 original Scream and has appeared in every sequel to date.

Officer Dewey Riley won't Scream alone.

"Ready or Not" directors Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are helming the reboot from a script by James Vanderbilt ("Murder Mystery", "Zodiac", "The Amazing Spider-Man") and Guy Busick ("Ready or Not"). They previously directed the critically acclaimed horror film Ready or Not.


"It's impossible to fully express how much Wes Craven's work and the Scream movies in particular mean to us as fans and have influenced us as storytellers", Radio Silence said in a previous statement. "We're absolute mega fans of her work and we're so excited to join her in the next chapter of the "Scream" saga!"

While screenwriter Kevin Williamson has always been the brains behind this franchise, he's stepping into an executive producer role for this entry while James Vanderbilt (Murder Mystery, Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Guy Busick (Ready or Not, Castle Rock) write the screenplay this time.

Earlier this year, Sidney Prescott herself, Neve Campbell, confirmed to ET that she is in talks to join the yet-untitled Scream 5. Although one might have been able to understand a pure Scream remake at this point, the presence of Cox and Arquette nearly demands that Campbell be along for the ride as well. We can only assume that it's an announcement that will come sooner or later, because it seems like the viability of any Scream 5 would have to hinge on Campbell's involvement.
