“You Cannot Kill David Arquette” features footage from the journey, along with interviews with WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, and actress Courteney Cox, plus David’s sisters – Rosanna Arquette and Patricia Arquette.

David is one of the executive producers on the project. Stay tuned for updates, including the release date.
