Deputy Dewey Returns for a 4th ‘Scream’


When he’s not standing in a plastic bubble supporting those in need of food across the world, David Arquette is confirming that there will be a Scream 4, and that he and his wife Courteney Cox will be reprising their roles from the 90’s slasher flicks. According to E!, Arquette confirmed that Kevin Williamson is writing the fourth installment, but that Wes Craven has not signed on yet and Neve Campbell, who played the main protagonist in the first three films has rejected the chance to portray Sydney Prescott yet again.

But Deputy Dipshit and Gale are back on board, that’s for sure. According to Arquette, “I fell in love with my wife on Scream, so the opportunity to bring [Dewey] back to life and for my wife to play that really bitchy character again, it’s just going to be really fun.”

Cox did not comment on her husband calling her a bitch.

I guess we can just file this under “Meh” for several reasons: A) Scream 4 will just be another underwhelming fourth entry into a series a decade too late (just like Lethal Weapon 4, Live Free and Die Hard, and the proposed Brett Ratner-directed Beverly Hills Cop 4, among others); B) It’ll just be another entry of a horror franchise, which always seems inevitable; and C) There is probably no way to bring back Jamie Kennedy yet again to describe how one behaves in a “quadrilogy.”

The whole thing is ridiculous, but seems realistic coming from a Grade A Douchenheimer like Arquette. Scream 4 should be filming with the year.

Josh is a multi-tasker. He's been a cubicle monkey for the last few years, a veteran stage actor of over 10 years, a sometimes commercial actor, occasional writer of articles, a once-legend in the realm of podcastery, purveyor of chuckles in his homecity of Chicago as he has trained with the world renown iO (Improv Olympic) and Second City Conservatory and performed with both theaters, and can be seen doing a thing that actor's do on the website of his online sitcom, Josh also likes to tackle the beef of his bio with one run-on sentence, because it befits his train-of-thought.
