Courteney Cox will reprise her role of ambitious reporter Gale Weathers in the fourth installment of the slasher satire Scream.

The Cougar Town star, 45, who met husband David Arquette, 38, while filming the first movie in the series in 1996, says she’s excited about the upcoming sequel.

“There are really only a few of us that survived,” says Courteney.

The Friends actress and David will both be back for Scream 4, along with Neve Campbell, 36, who played the movie’s heroine, Sidney Prescott.

What about rumors that Gale and bumbling sheriff Dwight “Dewey” Riley are killed off in beginning of the film?

“They’re probably back living in Woodsboro,” says Courteney, of the small California town that was the setting of the first film.

“I think that he’s probably still deputy, and I’ve had a lot of kids. I don’t know. I’m probably miserable, and then I’m sure a lot of murdering will happen.”
