The married couple are looking forward to reprising their roles in the horror franchise in which they first met when they starred alongside each other in 1996's 'Scream'.
David - who played Deputy Dewey Riley in the original film - said: "I fell in love with my wife on 'Scream', so the opportunity to bring Dewey back to life and for my wife to play that really b****y character again, it's just going to be really fun. It's just great."
Courteney, 45, played TV reporter Gale Weathers in the original 'Scream'. She and David also appeared in sequels 'Scream 2' and 'Scream 3'.
David, 37, hopes the team behind the original film will reunite for the next instalment.
He added: "Kevin Williamson is writing the script at this moment, and hopefully Wes Craven is going to direct."
Although main star Neve Campbell has reportedly turned down the opportunity to reprise her role, David would love her to change her mind and return.
He said: "I hope Neve does it. I really hope so."
