those years Scream saw the return of franchise legends Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox, and the film’s effectiveness earned it an official sequel, set to begin filming this summer. While not all of the characters from the film survived the endeavor, Cox’s Gale Weathers once again managed to survive the horrors of Ghostface, leaving audiences wondering if we could expect their return for the promised sequel. The actress recently commented that she would be ready to return for the sixth film, while also expressing how directors Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin managed to rejuvenate the entire franchise and made original director Wes Craven proud . The new Scream is now in cinemas.
“Does that mean I didn’t die?” Cox joked with ComicBook.com when asked about returning as Gale while promoting her new STARZ series Glowing Valley. “Okay, if I may say so, of course. What a fun experience to have such a long-running film series, and this one just feels totally revitalized in a new way. And it’s a relaunch, not a fifth installment, whatever you call it… It’s a relaunch and the directors are amazing and I think Wes would look down and say, ‘I’m so happy it’s Matt and Tyler .'”
While the first four films revolved heavily around Campbell’s Sidney Prescott, this latest entry managed not only to draw in old characters, but also channeled the terror around other relevant figures of the series. Certainly some viewers would be disappointed if Gale Weathers didn’t return, but the events of this film certainly imply that the franchise may shift its focus in the future.
Since fans are waiting for updates on the new Screamyou can watch Cox in the new STARZ series Glowing Valley.
Glowing Valley is a horror comedy about a dysfunctional family who moves from the big city to a small town to a house where terrible atrocities have taken place. But nobody seems to notice, except Pat, who’s convinced she’s either depressed or obsessed – turns out the symptoms are exactly the same. Patricia “Pat” Phelps (Cox) is a former “wild child” who rose to fame by writing a raunchy, drug- and alcohol-infused romance (aka Lady Porn). 17 years later, Pat is clean and sober but totally unfulfilled. She still hasn’t written her second novel, she can’t remember the last time she had sex with her husband (Greg Kinnear), and her teenage children are at the stage where they want you dead. She was a faithful wife until her one slip: she was having a torrid affair with the hot young handyman who came by to fix the sink while Terry was at work. In a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, she and Terry dump all their life savings and move the family out of the “crazy” town and into a big old house in the suburbs with a turbulent past of its own. Everyone has their demons, but for Pat Phelps, they may be real.
Cox stars as Patricia “Pat” Phelps, while Kinnear plays her ever-optimistic husband, Terry Phelps, whose patience and self-control are being tested like never before. Mira Sorvino plays Rosemary, who is either Pat’s alter ego, a split personality, her it, her muse, or a demon trying to possess her. Merrin Dungey plays Kam, Pat’s oldest friend and book editor. Gusbirney and Dylan Gage also play Pat and Terry’s teenage children, Gaynor and Jake.
Glowing Valley Premiered on STARZ on March 7th. Stay tuned for details on the new ones Scream.
