"We didn't have any idea that was going on," Craven told me at Spike TV's Scream Awards…
In fact, Craven said reuniting the original cast members "was a big lovefest. It's kind of embarrassing."
Cox and Arquette first met and fell in love while making the first flick of the ghostface killer franchise. Scream 4 shot for about six months in Michigan with Cox shooting for just about three weeks.
"It's very sad," Craven said of the split. "I just about cried when I heard. It's a wrenching thing to happen to anybody that you love. I wish them both the best."
