A friend of Courteney and David’s tells HollywoodLife.com the couple was willing to do anything to save their relationship…even commit to doing another film in the series where they first fell in love!

David Arquette and Courteney Cox tried to do everything they could to save their 11-year marriage before announcing their separation!  In fact, a friend of the couple’s tells HollywoodLife.com they wanted to make it work so badly they even committed to doing Scream 4 together in an effort to relive the time when they first became infatuated with one another in 1996.

“They fell in love on the first Scream, and a big part of their relationship was these films. They signed onto the fourth film as a potential way to make them remember what made them fall in love with each other. They both would talk about that,” an on-set insider tells us exclusively.

Courtney, 46, and David, 39, tried desperately to make things work between them — but in the end, nothing helped.

“They were in counseling…they were doing anything that they thought would save their relationship,” our source says. “They worked together on the film, but then she finished her shooting schedule early and the absence just made things revert back to the same way it was before, which wasn’t good.”

Despite their marital woes, our insider says Courteney and David kept their issues at home — and on set, they were completely professional.

“Their issues never showed on set because they are both pros, and he never wants to bring drama to anything, ever,” the source explains, adding, “But off set, you could see it was troubling sometimes. They are mostly concerned with Coco’s well-being. When she has been on set, they didn’t ever want to make things weird for her benefit.”

We love how Courteney and David tried to keep things together, even for their daughter’s sake. Although the couple announced their separation Oct. 11, maybe they’ll still be able to make it work in the long run. Do you think it’s possible?
