Courteney Cox will reprise her role as news reporter Gale Weathers in the upcoming “Scream” reboot.
The 56-year-old Friends veteran shared the news on social media. ‘I can’t wait to see this face again,’ the actress wrote over a clip of a white mask. She added the hashtag for Scream Movies.
This comes two months after her ex-husband David Arquette confirmed that he will be a part of the highly anticipated sequel.
David Arquette announced in May that he would reprise his role as Sheriff Dewey Riley in the upcoming reboot. Plot details for the reboot are under wraps.
The original “Scream” debuted in 1996 with Neve Campbell starring as Sidney Prescott, the target of the Ghostface killer, who had a look inspired by the Edvard Munch painting “The Scream.” Cox and Arquette co-starred in the four-film franchise, directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson. Bob Weinstein’s Dimension Films released all four films, which combined for $608 million in worldwide box office with sequels released in 1997, 2000 and 2011.
