Courtney Cox Rejoins ‘Scream’ Franchise

Another week sees yet another original Scream cast member signing on for the new film. Courtney Cox has agreed to reprise her role of Gale Weathers for the latest Scream film according to a press release from Spyglass Media Group.

Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett of the filmmaking group Radio Silence will direct the movie which is based on a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. Creator Kevin Williamson and the third member of the Radio Silence trio, Chad Villella, are executive producing with Project X Entertainment’s Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak serving as producers.

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

Helmed by legendary directory Wes Craven, Scream burst on the scene in 1996 leaving horror fans craving more. Since that time three sequels followed: Scream 2 (1997), Scream 3 (2000) and Scream 4 (2011) as well as a TV series which lasted three seasons airing on MTV and VH1.
