“It’s a cathartic experience to just be able to act opposite Courteney,” David said. “It’s been 25 years of our lives. We’ve grown up together. We have a child together.”

The former couple met on the set of the first Scream movie, which was released in 1996. They got married in 1999 and share 16-year-old daughter Coco. They separated in 2010 and finalized their divorce in 2013.

Courteney said in the same interview that the Never Been Kissed actor became emotional during their first scene together.

“He got very emotional while he was filming it,” the actress said. “He said the next day the crew didn’t look at him.”

She went on to say she had “no apprehensions” about joining the cast of the film and working with her ex. “I was just so happy to be working with both of them,” she said, referring to both David and their co-star Neve Campbell.

Courteney opened up about Scream in a separate interview, where she described the new film as “nuanced.” Check it out
