Popsugar visited the set of Cougar Town on Wednesday and was treated to a conversation with Courteney Cox. The actress, who will be reprising her role as tabloid reporter-turned-author Gale Weathers, had this to say about her on-set experience:
How was it stepping back into the Scream franchise?
CC: That character is really over the top, and I just realized that was 10 years ago; all of the actors on the set, the new group, they’re very subdued, kind of quiet. And I stick out like a sore thumb; I was like “Gail Weathers is back!” Like, are they going to talk any louder at all? They are very cool, and I’m older, and not as cool. But I stepped into my character; we’ll see what happens. Dewey was Dewey! But then, you know, people have changed. People are cooler than me.
And then there was talk of future sequels…
Is it true that there will be more Scream films after this one?
CC: There is going to be a Scream 4, 5, and 6. [But] I don’t know anything.
So there you have it: Further confirmation that Scream 4, if received well, will usher in a new trilogy. (Lucy Hale said as much earlier in the week.) But will Cox’s character live long enough to die another day?
