Lots of names have been added to the ever growing list of potential victims for Wes Craven’s upcoming flick Scream 4, and we’ve got the skinny for you on exactly whom they will be playing.
From Slash Film:
Emma Roberts will play Jill Kessler, “one of the film’s primary heroines,” a cousin to Neve Campbell’s character in the series. Described as “pretty in an ingenue way. Smart, strong. A little goofy, but she makes it sexy. Full of contradictions, but instantly likable. Not a mean bone in her body. They’re not close, but Jill is Sidney’s cousin.”
Hayden Panettiere will play Jill’s best friend, Kirby Reed — a nerdy film geek. Described as “cute and quirky, was a tomboy until a year ago, now she’s alternative, cool, and sexy. She’s a pop culture and horror aficionado.”
Rory Culkin will play Charlie Walker, a potential love interest for Jill. Here is the character description: “Messy cute. Friends with Jill, Trevor, Kirby, and Olivia. A little cocky, he likens himself to ‘Randy’ from Scream 1 without the nerd part. No such luck, he’s definitely a nerd. May or may not have a crush on Jill. He’d never admit it if he does.”
Lake Bell will play Deputy Judy Hicks, a police officer who knew Sidney (Campbell) from high school. The casting call described the character as follows: “A police officer, decidedly sexy but a bit off, she knew Sidney from high school. Didn’t make a big enough impression for Sidney to remember her. Likes her boss, Dewey, perhaps a little too much.”
