Ahead Of Scream Release Courteney Cox Reveals About A Character Death That Was Scheduled For First Movie – FIND OUT WHOHollywood
Courteney Cox has admitted about how a character was originally supposed to be killed off in the first ‘Scream’ movie in her recent interview as the new installment of the film is all set to hit the screens
It’s fascinating to learn about the storyline shifts in films that were previously established and then turned out to be something different. In a recent interview actress Courteney Cox, who reprises her role as Gale Weathers from the Scream franchise, discussed a character demise that was originally scheduled for the first movie in the film series. David Arquette was meant to be murdered off in the first ‘Scream’ film, according to Courteney Cox.
The 57-year-old actress confessed that the movie could have gone in a different direction if studio executives had anticipated how successful his character, cop Dewey Riley, would be with audiences and changed their minds. “There was a point, I believe it was in the first ‘Scream,’ where David’s role Dewey was going to be killed off,” Courteney told the interviewer. They discarded it after seeing how he came over and how much people appreciated him.”

Courteney and David, who wedded in 1999 but divorced in 2010, recently reconnected for a fifth ‘Scream’ picture, and the actress confessed that working on the movie without renowned filmmaker Wes Craven, who died in 2015, was “very challenging.”
“This is the first ‘Scream’ movie without Wes, and it’s been incredibly difficult,” she remarked.
It’s been over 25 years since the first ‘Scream’ was released in theatres, and the cast believes the series has the ability to last for many more years. “I truly do believe ‘Scream’ will indeed be able to live on,” he insisted.
You know it’ll have life whenever you begin stuff like Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven created, and really root it in this legendary figure (Ghostface) who’s now somewhat of on the Mount Rushmore of horrific figures.”
“It appears that folks aren’t growing tired of these films,” Neve Campbell noted. When I see fans, they constantly want to know when we’re going to do another.” Courteney promises that the new film will remain true to the original’s rigorous expectations.
