The Hollywood Reporter has also reported a few months ago that David Arquette, Cox’s ex-husband, will also reprise his role in the franchise as Sheriff Dewey Riley.

“I am thrilled to be playing Dewey again and to reunite with my Scream family, old and new,” Arquette said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
