Scream 4 Adds 3 More to Cast

The body count on Scream 4 keeps mounting. Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, and Emma Roberts joined forces with Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox Arquette, and David Arquette in May. But the scream's not done yet...
THR reports that Adam Brody, Marley Shelton (Grindhouse), and Erik Knudsen (the upcoming Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) have joined the cast.
Brody will play a CSI-reared cop who has recently graduated from college, while Shelton will replace the departing Lake Bell as a deputy who went to high school with Campbell. Knudsen will play the know-it-all, horror movie geek, providing the same comic relief that Jamie Kennedy offered in the original trilogy.
Scream 4 sees the return of director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson, who are desperate to keep the movie's killer a secret. At a recent table read, actors were told to stop reading "at page 75 to prevent even those already cast in the film from knowing the climax."
Secrecy means we're allowed to speculate, so we'll take a guess at the killer: Campbell. Quite the twist, right?
