David Arquette back for Scream 5

May 18th, 2020 by Marc Comments


You may recall a few days back we reported that Scream star Neve Campbell was hopeful that she would be returning for the upcoming fifth Scream movie and now we have confirmation that one of the other main cast members are already back for more.

David Arquette, who plays the lovable Dewey Riley in the franchise is back for one more tussle with the killer.

Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, directors of the superb Ready Or Not, are bringing Wes Craven’s genre-bending franchise back for a fifth stab.

The movie will be an original tale co-written by James Vanderbilt (Murder Mystery, Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Guy Busick (Ready or Not, Castle Rock).

Arquette said: “I am thrilled to be playing Dewey again and to reunite with my ‘Scream’ family, old and new. Scream has been such a big part of my life, and for both the fans and myself, I look forward to honouring Wes Craven’s legacy.”

Word is that they are keen to get Campbell and Courtenay Cox to return for the fifth outing too.

I’m always keen for a new Scream outing as I’m a big fan of the franchise – well, except for 3 – and I think the guys behind Ready or Not could do wonderful things with the story but, I have to say, is surely Dewey can’t escape death another time… can he?

Let me know your thoughts, gang.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
