More than 10 years after they fell in love on the set of the original Scream, David Arquette has confirmed he and wife Courteney Cox will return to battle the ghost-faced bad guy in Scream 4.

“We are going to be doing Scream 4,” David tells E! Online. “Kevin Williamson is writing the script at this moment, and hopefully Wes Craven is going to direct.”

In the first installation of the horror series, David played the bumbling but sweet Deputy Dewey Riley who fell for Courteney’s sassy tabloid TV reporter Gale Weathers.

“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,” David said. “It’s just great.”

While Neve Campbell has reportedly already turned down another go around as Sidney Prescott, David still has his fingers crossed that she’ll be back.

“I hope Neve does it. I really hope so,” he says.
