Yes, Virgina, there is going to be a Scream 4.
Everyone knows that no successful horror franchise really ever dies off and so it goes that the inevitable Scream 4 is in the works and word is that David Arquette and his wife Courtney Cox have signed on to reprise their roles.
Cox and Arquette have both been with the Scream movies since the very first one in 1996. In the original Scream Arquette played the role of Deputy Dwight ‘Dewey’ Riley and Cox played tabloid news reporter Gail Weathers. Both actors reprised their respective roles in Scream 2 and 3.
“I fell in love with my wife on Scream,” David Arquette is quoted as saying. “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. It’s just great.”
David Arquette has also confirmed that Kevin Williamson the writer/creator of the original Scream movie is on board to write number 4 and that they are looking an eye towards Wes Craven to again take on directing duties. There is no word on whether or not Neve Campbell will come on board as well to reprise her role as Sydney Prescott who was the killer’s target in the first movie.
No production date is set yet for this movie.
