Well now the film series that single-handedly revitalized the teen horror film genre and became one of the greatest film parodies of all time, returns with Scream 4. The three main protagonists of the film will be returning with David Arquette and Courteney Cox playing the couple Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers, respectively and Neve Campbell reprising her role as Sidney Prescott.
