David Arquette Hopes Hayden Panettiere Returns For 'Scream 5'

David Arquette is hoping that Hayden Panettiere returns for the upcoming Scream 5.

The 48-year-old actor opened up in a new interview about the possibility of seeing Hayden reboot her role as Kirby Reed in the movie.

“I love Hayden,” David shared with HollywoodLife. “I think she’s a tremendous person and actress, and I’d love to see her back.”

If you recall, Hayden‘s Kirby was last seen in the film series as she was bleeding out after being stabbed by Charlie. However, Kirby’s body was never found, so she could very well be alive and kicking.

Scream 5 has added a few new faces to the movie, including In The Heights star Melissa Barrera.

You can see what else David shared about reuniting with ex-wife Courteney Cox for the film here!

Hayden issued a statement on Friday (July 17).

“I am coming forward with the truth about what happened to me with the hope that my story will empower others in abusive relationships to get the help they need and deserve. I am prepared to do my part to make sure this man never hurts anyone again. I’m grateful for my support system, which helped me find the courage to regain my voice and my life.”

Her lawyer, Alan Jackson, also issued a statement: ““After suffering for years as the victim of psychological, emotional and severe physical abuse, Hayden Panettiere has begun the process of taking back her life. Hayden has found the strength and courage to share the truth about her abuse and her abuser, and she intends to assist the prosecution to see that justice is served. As a survivor, she recognizes that her arduous journey of healing has just begun.”

Brian was previously arrested for allegedly punching Hayden in the face in February. Last May, Brian was charged with felony domestic violence after an altercation with Hayden. That case ended up being dismissed.

Hayden is asking the court to enforce the terms of the protective order in Los Angeles, where she is currently living.
