Scream reboot has Arquettes?
Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette are apparently in discussions for the new Scream trilogy due to arrive from the original writer of the series, Kevin Williamson.
It's a restart that we've heard lot's about from a fourth film in the series to a restart with a new trilogy, and even word of a handover to a completely new group of characters. Right now we're really not totally sure which way this is going to go, but the word is that the new Scream is a complete trilogy.
I don't really think it's a surprise that Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette are in talks for the new series, after all the money to entice them back and perhaps handover to a new crew would be really good, and Courtney could use the publicity to promote her other projects, after all she is the most successful out of all the ex-Friends crew, and who would have thought we'd be saying that?
The news comes from Hollywood Insider through Coming Soon and tells us little more than they are in talks for the project, and while this is rumour, Entertainment Weekly say that the Arquette's have been approached about appearing in the sequel and discussions are underway.
I think that if they persuade a majority of the cast to return then we could get Neve Campbell back too, however as I said before, why and how?
I honestly can't see them having another episode where another person is heading after Campbell's character and wanting to kill her, whether the reason be vengeance or just sick perverted humour, I just can't see it happening again can you?
There has to be something new, and the previous hints have been that there will be some form of handover, so get the cast back for one more, hand over to a new crew a la the trend in Hollywood, and cheaper Scream 5 and 6 which have the possibility of remaking the previous films and throwing in the usual budget and CGI increases.
I just don't understand it all and the trend for Hollywood to be eating itself so quickly, I'm just not so sure I want another Scream, new team or not. What about you? Can anyone think of a way that this could really work?
