David Arquette has no hard feelings towards his ex-wife Courteney Cox and admits he’s ‘excited’ to reunite with the actress for Scream 5.
The formerly married couple met on the set of the original Scream movie in 1996 but had split by the time Scream 4 arrived in 2011.
However, fans of the iconic horror franchise are thrilled their characters Gale Weathers and Deputy Dewey Riley are back together on-screen in the upcoming film.
Both Courteney, 56, and David, 48, are confirmed to return for the fifth instalment next year meaning their respective characters will be back together again on-screen.
Teasing what’s to come, David admitted to TooFab: ‘4 didn’t end well. I don’t know where they’ll be, but it’s exciting.’
The actor went on to praise the dynamic between them despite their divorce, adding: ‘I love working with her. I mean, we have a daughter together, Coco. So, we co-parent really well together, but it’s always fun to act opposite of her.
‘She’s a tremendous actor, so I’m excited for that. It’ll be fun.’
Following their split, David went on to marry Christina McLarty while Friends actress Courteney is in a long-term relationship with Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid.
The former spouses, whose divorce was finalised in 2013, share 16-year-old daughter Coco.
Speaking to Yahoo! Entertainment, David went on to detail their co-parenting experience and revealed: ‘We’ve just had – not an easy time with it, we’ve just been really open and supportive of each other.
‘We never went head-to-head, [or] battled each other, through the process of divorce and through the process of raising our kid. So it’s made for a friendship and relationship that is out of respect.’
David confirmed he would be returning for Scream 5 in May and told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘I am thrilled to be playing Dewey again and to reunite with my Scream family, old and new.
‘Scream has been such a big part of my life, and for both the fans and myself, I look forward to honouring Wes Craven’s legacy.’
Courteney confirmed her return shortly after while Neve Campbell will also reprise her lead role as Sidney Prescott.
