- Story Text: Courtney Cox and Drew Barrymore, stars of Wes Craven's latest horror flick, "Scream", attended its European premiere in London last week.
The action is set around the small suburban town of Woodsboro which is being plagued by a killer.
The sociopath has pegged high school students as his prime target, starting with Cassey (Barrymore) and her boyfriend (Kevin Patrick Walls).
His next target is Sidney (Neve Campbell) and he seems to know her every move - lurking in the shadows, stalking her every chance he gets and leaving a trail of bodies along the way.
"Friends" cast member Cox plays journalist Gale Weathers, who reported on Sidney's mother's murder the year before. Now she's investigating the serial killer.
"Scream" is directed by the master of suspense, Wes Craven, notorious for the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series.
And he's already planning a sequel to which Cox has signed.
"We have started work on it already and we begin filming in June. It'll be out at Christmas. Any cast that survive will be in it, that includes Courtney," Craven said.
