Exclusive: Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette in discussions for 'Scream' reboot

Posted on

If you needed proof that everything old in Hollywood is becoming new again, look no further than Scream. The mid-’90s franchise that sent-up slightly older horror flicks is being remade into a whole new set of movies, starting this fall. Writer-director Kevin Williamson has been working on a trilogy that will bring back many of the characters from the original movies.

And EW has learned exclusively that Williamson has approached Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette to return. Deals have yet to be signed, however, as all involved try to hammer out potential scheduling conflicts that could arise now that Courteney Cox Arquette’s pilot Cougar Town was picked up by ABC. (Agents for the actors have yet to return EW’s request for comment.) No word on whether Neve Campbell’s character, among others, will make the cut.
