Monday, it was announced David Arquette would be back as Sheriff Dewey Riley in pursuit of Ghostface in the “Scream” relaunch.

Officials have not said much about the plot of the film, but they did confirm it will be an original story co-written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick.

Though Arquette is the first member of the film’s original cast to be announced as coming back, WWAY reports there have been conversations with other original cast members as well.
