Scream 5 Adds Another Original Cast Member

First Deputy Dewey and now Gale Weathers. The Scream 5 cast is getting the gang back together for another murder party!

3 Comments

Slowly but surely, the gang is getting back together. A fifth Scream movie is in the works and already we know David Arquette has signed on to return, while Neve Campbel previously admitted she was in negotiations to return as Sidney Prescott. Now another piece of the puzzle is in place.

Courteney Cox, who played news reporter and author Gale Weathers in the previous four films, confirmed she's coming back for Scream 5. In a post on Instagram, she revealed an image of the movie's Ghostface mask, writing, "I can't wait to see this face again." The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the news.

The next Scream movie will be the first not directed by horror icon Wes Craven, who died in 2015. Instead, it will be helmed by Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the duo behind 2019's Ready or Not. A screenplay is being written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick, who are taking over duties from Kevin Williamson (Scream, Scream 2, and Scream 4), who will serve as an executive producer on the project.

No other details are known about the upcoming Scream 5 at this point. However, one former cast member has made it clear he wouldn't mind being asked back for the film--though it would be practically impossible. In a recent interview, Matthew Lillard--who played Stu in the first film--said he'd love to reprise his role one more time. Of course, those who have seen the original Scream will remember Stu was not only one of the killers in the movie, but he was very dead by the end. But hey, anything is possible. Jamie Kennedy's Randy died in the second film, but appeared via a videotape in Scream 3.

A release date for Scream 5 has not been set.

Well, Stu wasn't shot in the head.

It's very much an established rule on the Scream movies that the vilain must be shot in the head to die.

Emma Roberts was also not shot in the head.

Sydney's plot armor made the sequels much weaker, imo. In the first movie you didn't know if she was going to survive or not, in the sequel there was a strong chance she would die (as typically protagonists die in the sequel) but then she ended up living. And... yeah. Four movies in and she's still untouchable.

I also only really liked the original Ghostface(s). The copycat killers aren't very memorable.

Anyone else think Lt. Doofy from the Wayans parody would work better?
