David Arquette had this to say; I am thrilled to be playing Dewey again and to reunite with my Scream family, old and new," said Arquette in a statement. "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.”
Kevin Williamson, who has been brought on a executive producer of the upcoming sequel had this to say, “I'm excited to reteam with David and work with Jamie, Guy and Radio Silence on the next Scream," said Williamson. "Their take on the movie is both original, inventive and honors Wes' legacy in a wonderful way.
