Scream 4 Cast Expands
Posted 05.29.10 by Ryan
Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox Arquette, and David Arquette are getting some company for the next installment of the Scream franchise. Variety reports that Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, and Emma Roberts have all signed on for Scream 4.
Director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson are also returning for the sequel, which is the first in new trilogy of Scream movies. Scream 4 will follow Campbell's cousin, Jill (Roberts), who will be the heroine of the movie. Panettiere will play her nerdy, movie geek friend, while Culkin will play a possible love interest.
THR recently reported that Lake Bell (It's Complicated) is also in talks to play a police officer who attended high school with Campbell. Casting is moving slowly on the project, as the movie's story is being kept so secret that potential actors have to decide if they will appear in the movie without seeing a script. We'll go out on a limb, though, and guess that the movie might follow a masked killer tormenting young victims via their cell phones.
