Courteney Cox Left A Cryptic Comment On Selena Gomez's Instagram Picture And Fans Think It's A Clue About "Scream 5"

    With rumours swirling about the new instalment of the horror movie franchise, it looks like Courteney Cox might've just let the cat out the bag...

    Hey, Selena Gomez — what's your favourite scary movie?

    Yep, if rumours are to be believed, the singer may well be making an appearance in the Scream franchise when it returns for its fifth instalment next year.

    But before we get there, let's rewind a minute. What's the deal with Scream 5 I hear you ask? Well, things have been simmering away for a while now as new details emerge.

    Dimension Films

    What we do know is that the new movie will be directed by duo Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who saw big success when they took the helm for 2019's Ready Or Not.

    Fox Searchlight Pictures

    And yep, cast favourites will be back. So far, Courteney Cox and David Arquette have been confirmed to reprise their roles of Gale and Dewey.

    Meanwhile, Scream queen Neve Campbell is also in talks to return.

    "We're having conversations – I have been approached about it," she said in an interview with Rotten Tomatoes. "We only started the conversation maybe a month and a half ago, so it's going to take some time to figure out how it's all going to work out. We're negotiating, so we'll see."

    Although the full cast has yet to be revealed, rumours are now abound that Selena could also be jumping into the frame after a flurry of Instagram activity caught people's attention.

    Courteney Cox and David Arquette, as well as new girls Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega, all now follow Selena Gomez on Instagram, while the directors have hit the follow button over on Twitter.

    As if that wasn't enough, screenshots show Courteney recently commenting on one of Selena's pictures, saying: "Can't wait to meet you."

    The comment was apparently deleted, but obviously not quick enough...

    Of course, fans are now taking this is as bible and (rightfully) losing their minds over the potential casting.
