While fans of the Scream series and its stars are devastated to embark on such a project without Wes Craven, David Arquette detailed how he hopes the new film will not only live up to its predecessors, but also serve as a process. healing to accept Craven’s passing.
“I spoke with the directors and they were huge fans of Wes,” Arquette shared with the Corpse Club podcast. “He’s been a huge inspiration to them their entire career. So they have their hearts in the right place, they want to do something that he’s proud of. And then the fact that Courtney comes back and hopefully Neve [Campbell] I also come back: there is something healing in that, so that we can continue with these films that he has made and continue to tell stories. ”
While Wes Craven was directing the original four films, the franchise was also explored on the small screen with Scream: The TV Series, which took on the slasher comedy tone and introduced a new myth.

It will be difficult and we will think about him a lot. But it will also feel good to be back in the world that he created “.
