Will We See Another Scream Trilogy with the Original Cast?

Another day, another remake. Or maybe another reboot, I guess. This isn't the first time we've heard about Scream 4, but this is the first time we've heard that they're going all the way back to the original cast. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette have been approached to return for a new Scream movie that is being written and directed by Kevin Williamson, primarily responsible for writing Scream and Scream 2 as well as Wes Craven's Cursed. But that's not all - Williamson has "been working on a trilogy that will bring back many of the characters from the original movies."
EW says that no deals have been signed for either of the Arquette's, so don't take this as confirmed casting yet. Our last update on Scream 4 from January actually mentioned that they would be using a younger cast, not an older (or the original) one. So now this is starting to sound a bit like the Ghostbusters sequel in the works - where we'll see a younger group of to-be-killed kids that the story will actually about, but the original cast will be involved in some way. Who really knows? I don't really expect them to completely restart this with Courteney and David and maybe Neve Campbell and use them and only them. Do you?
