Deja Vu All Over Again: Courteney Cox In “Scream 4″

The cast of “Scream 4” makes us want to squeal—the flick stars Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Kristen Bell, and Anna Paquin, plus has Neve Campbell reviving her role as Sidney Prescott while Courteney Cox is returning as tabloid reporter Gale Weathers. We’ve got a while to wait until it opens in theaters—until April—but the first image of the film has been released. I find it pretty interesting that even though the flick stars all these so-hot-right-now stars, they decided to go with Courteney being chased by the masked murderer for the first pic. Because, haven’t we seen that before? [EW]Courteney explains that while her character is the same old Gale, her circumstances have changed. ”I kind of gave up my job as the entertainment journalist,” says Courteney. ”I’m bored with my life and my marriage … [Murders] start happening, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.”

Who are we kidding? We’ll still be lining up at midnight on opening night to see this one.
