Gale Weathers Officially Returning for New Scream Movie

Courteney Cox in "Scream"

The cast of the new Scream movie continues to expand with another original cast member, Courteney Cox is returning for another bout with Ghostface!

At the start of this Summer, word came that David Arquette would be returning for the new Scream movie (along with Neve Cambell in talks to return as well). Today brings confirmation that Courteney Cox’s Gale Weathers will be making a return as well!

It’ll be nice to see this trio back (about the only ones who’ve survived every single movie in the franchise) for the film, and the filmmakers seem equally excited about it as well:

“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!”

The film is still slated to begin filming this year, with a heap of safety protocols in place, with hopes of hitting a 2021 release date. Hopefully, with filming set to begin sometime in the near future we’ll start getting word on some NEW additions to the cast as well. Regardless, I’m super excited to see the original cast coming back.
