Just in! Possible Casting News for Scream 4

Wondering who’s gonna end up possible meat for the beast known as Ghostface when Scream 4 hits theatres April 15th of next year? Time for a little casting news to get you in the spirit of things!

According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog “Lake Bell is in negotiations to join the franchise, and offers are out to Twilight actress Ashley Greene, ‘Heroes’ star Hayden Panettiere, and Rory Culkin (Twelve) for key starring roles.”

Scream 4 reunites Wes Craven with Kevin Williamson, who kicked off a horror movie revival with his Scream script in 1996. The story brings back original cast members Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courteney Cox, though the new flick is seen as a passing of the baton to a new generation of slasher victims,with Williamson already under contract to write a fifth installment.

If deals are concluded, Greene would play Campbell’s cousin Jill, essentially the heroine of the movie, and Panettiere would play her best friend, a nerdy film geek. Culkin would play a potential love interest for Jill. Bell is negotiating to play a police officer who knew Sidney (Campbell) from high school.

Casting is proceeding slowly because Craven and Dimension are not sending the script to agencies in order to protect its secrecy. With only character descriptions, actors are having a difficult time deciding whether certain roles are for them.

Filming is scheduled to commence this July in Michigan.

    • Terminal

        I’m still gasping. What’s wrong with Pinhead? I think he’s one of the best, right up there with Jason and Freddy.
