Hollywood star Courteney Cox will be reprising her role as news reporter Gale Weathers in the upcoming “Scream” reboot.
The announcement was made on Friday by Spyglass Media Group and Paramount, while keeping the plot under wraps and saying that filming is expected to begin later this year in Wilmington, N.C.
The reboot will be directed by Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett from a script by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick.
The original “Scream” film was released in 1996, and Cox along David Arquette co-starred in the four-film franchise, directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson.
David Arquette had announced earlier in May that he would reprise his role as Sheriff Dewey Riley in the upcoming reboot.
Scream’s sequels were released in 1997, 2000, and 2011, which bagged $608 million at the worldwide box office combined.
