Courtney Cox returns to fight Ghost Face in Scream 5

July 31st, 2020 by Marc Comments

As if we weren’t just excited enough at the concept of the guys behind the wonderful Ready or Not making a fifth Scream movie (here), now we have another legacy character back in the saddle.

Following the news that Neve Campbell is (probably) back for the movie (“Hopefully, we can all see eye to eye on everything and make something great, but it’s a process”) and David Arquette is confirmed back (here) as Dewey, then it’s a welcome addition that Friends star Courtney Cox, who plays reporter Gale Walker in the franchise, is also set to return – hey, you can’t have Dewey and not have Gale, ok?

Ready or Not’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett will direct from a script by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick while original Scream writer Kevin Williamson is back as a producer.

The movie will begin filming soon in Wilmington, North Carolina and we’ll keep you posted as more cast members are added.

Who’s excited for a new Scream? Personally I really liked the fourth movie, feeling it was a proper return to form and, as a massive fan of Ready or Not, I have every faith this one is going to rock… and I have a sneaky suspicion this is a new beginning for the franchise.

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
