Additional! Additional! Read all about it! Journalist Gale Weathers, played by Courteney Cox, is come back to Scream 5.

“We can’t imagine Yell without the iconic Gale Weathers and are so thrilled and humbled to have the opportunity to work with Courteney, ”said the director duo Radio Silence Deadline. “We are absolute mega fans of her work and we are delighted to join her in the next chapter of the Yell saga! »

Cox joins another original actor, David Arquette, in what is billed as a “relaunch” of the franchise. But with Cox and Arquette reprising their roles, you have to imagine we’re watching more than one Forced awakeningLegacy-style sequel, with Ghostface’s torch (or knife) upgraded to a new generation. It is purely speculative. What is actually in James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick’s script remains a secret. All we know is that Gale and Dewey are back.

Cox acknowledged the news on his Instagram with this little tease.

With those two pieces in place, eyes turn to Neve Campbell, who has played the staunch survivor Sidney Prescott throughout the series. Campbell recently recognized she is in negotiations to return for the film and has spoken to the directors, but has not yet made a decision (or signed a contract).

Scream 5 was supposed to be released in 2021, but as with everything from this era, that date is subject to change.
