We interview Neve Campbell and David Arquette about returning to the Scream franchise, the series’ possible future, and more.
Warning: This interview contains Scream spoilers
Arriving shortly after the 25th anniversary of the original film, the new one Scream is finally in the cinema. As a new Ghostface killer threatens Woodsboro, several generations of characters gather to counter the threat. In line with the trend of older successors, Scream features several franchise veterans repeating their classic roles. Among the recurring faces are David Arquette and Neve Campbell, who have been in the series from the beginning.
Screen Rant talked to the two actors about their return to the franchise, the future of Scream series and more.
Screen Rant: I can not believe this is happening. I have been a long time fan of the franchise and the new Scream falls just around the 25th anniversary and we’ll be back to Stus House. I need to know when I stepped into that set, there was a memory that came back from making the first Scream as soon as you were in Stu’s house again?
Neve Campbell: Just about to shoot the final sequence, which took us about three weeks. Because it was a long sequence and complex and wonderful. The actors, Matt and Skeet, and everyone involved were just so phenomenal that it really brought me straight back to that time in Santa Rosa, California, which was a very, very special time for all of us and obviously meant a lot to our lives. .
There are so many good trivia. I always read all the casting stuff because there are so many different, alternative timelines for what Scream almost was. Was there ever a version where you almost played another character inside Scream?
David Arquette: Initially, they wanted me to watch some of the other characters in the movie. But I told Wes, “I really love the role of Dewey. I think I could bring something else to it.” And he said, “That’s very interesting.” And then I was happily cast, and that changed my life.
Is the Billy Loomis thing true? They wanted you to look at Billy?
David Arquette: It was not just necessarily Billy Loomis. It was just “Look at All the Younger Roles” as one of the kids in high school, and I felt like I was older than them, even though I was probably close to the same age.
Well, you chose right because Dewey is one of my favorites. And I’m handling the Dewey / Gale split worse than any split that has ever happened. How did you feel when you first found out they were not together anymore? Did you have problems with that? Did it make sense to you?
David Arquette: There were other elements that I was in a way … that did not feel like Dewey. But I thought it was really interesting that his life did not work out as he had expected and I think it was an interesting place to start.
We are somewhere in sequel / restart territory, everything will be revealed. But I’m just curious as a fan, do you feel there are more stories to tell in Woodsboro? Do you see this as the last time the old cast will have to face Ghostface? or do we not know at this point?
Neve Campbell: It seems like there are always more stories to tell in Woodsboro, and there’s a taste for it. So I think if people love this, I would imagine that there will be an appetite and of course we would all love to be a part of it.
David Arquette: Ghostface is such an iconic character.
I want to ask because we see Sidney jogging, she’s pushing a stroller. This is in the trailer. And then we see you wearing a ring. Do you know who Sidney is marrying?
Neve Campbell: Well, I think I’m saying Mark.
So it’s Kincaid!
Neve Campbell: Yes. Someone told me that yesterday. I was not aware of it when I said it.
David Arquette: It’s not Mark McGrath?
I do not think it’s Mark McGrath.
Neve Campbell: You know what’s funny, I played Patrick [Dempsey]’s sister in Grey’s Anatomy!
Neve Campbell: Yes. That’s a little weird!
I love it. The fans are happy about that. Well, thank you very much. Congratulations. This was a dream.
Neve Campbell: Thank you very much!
