Courtney Cox-Arquette & David Arquette Sign On to 'Scream 4'
It's 1996 all over again! Why not bank on an old hit when you're not doing much else? Okay well Courtney Cox-Arquette does have a new show in the fall, but David Arquette hasn't been doing jack since Hamlet 2 and that barely had any lines in it. Oh well, the married couple has signed on to the fourth installment of Scream. Let's not scream until we see this disaster or brilliance. We're in the air.
"We are going to be doing Scream 4," Arquette just told me from New York City, where he's hanging out in plastic box over Madison Square Garden for Feeding America (more on that later). "Kevin Williamson is writing the script at this moment, and hopefully Wes Craven is going to direct." (source)
All I want is a remake of "Bam! B*tch went down!" too bad Rosario Dawson bit the dust in the first one. As for Neve Campbell, Williamson has recently revealed that home girl reportedly threw this shizz to the curb. What??? Someone needs a head examined because girl hasn't been doing anything since her Noxema commercials in '98...oh wait, that was that other girl.
"I fell in love with my wife on Scream, so the opportunity to bring [Dewey] back to life and for my wife to play that really bitchy character again, it's just going to be really fun," Arquette said. "It's just great."
While Williamson recently revealed that Neve Campbell has turned down the chance to reprise her role as Sidney Prescott, Arquette said, "I hope Neve does it. I really hope so."
As for a new storyline, Arquette laughed: "Kevin has sort of put out the broad strokes, but I don't think I'm at liberty to share any of that." (source)
