Now word’s come in that David Arquette will be back for Scream 5, reprising the role of Dewey Riley, who appeared in all four prior Scream movies. Here’s what Arquette had to say about his return to the Scream franchise (via THR):

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 honoring Wes Craven’s legacy.

David Arquette is the first Scream veteran to be recruited for Scream 5, which is described as a “relaunch” being made by Spyglass Media Group. Earlier this month, Neve Campbell, who played Sidney Prescott in the previous Scream movies, said she’s had “conversations” about appearing in Scream 5, but for right now, it remains to be seen if she’ll actually be brought aboard. Matthew Lillard has also expressed interest in being brought back, and other actors who’ve had starring roles in the Scream franchise include Courtney Cox and Jamie Kennedy.

At the very least, David Arquette’s inclusion in Scream 5 indicates to fans of the horror film series that there will be ties to first four movies, as opposed to wiping the board clean with a straightforward reboot (which we already got with the Scream TV series). No plot details for Scream 5 have been revealed yet, other than it will almost certainly involve someone disguised as Ghostface killing people left and right.

I'm down with another Scream so long as ...

 

  • Hayden Panettiere's character isn't dead & returns!
  • Sid is revealed to be the killer to put this all to rest OR Gail in hopes of attempting to resurrect her career as a journalist/writer
  • Matthew Lillard rumors hold true and somehow he returns!

I swear I'm not smoking crazy shit, just a few pipe dreams I have!

 

One theory I saw broke it down as this:

 

  • Scream was about the tropes of horror
  • Scream 2 was the tropes of horror sequels
  • Scream 3 was about the tropes of trilogies
  • Scream 4 was the ultra-meta modern self-referential swerve take
  • Scream 5 should be about how IT'S the true sequel after the original

:lol:

Scream 5 should be about tropes of reboots.
