A new “Scream” means new faces and new deaths. Dimension Studios is currently in talks with Ashley Greene (Twilight), Hayden Panettiere (Heroes), Lake Bell (It’s Complicated), and Rory Culkin (Mean Creek) to join returning cast members Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courteney Cox in the fourth installment of the Wes Craven horror franchise.
Heat Vision reports that if agreements can be had, Green would play Jill, Campbell’s cousin with Culkin being cast as her potential love interest. Meanwhile, Panettiere would play a nerdy film geek who is her best friend and Bell will play a police officer who knew Sidney (Campbell) from high school.
With Scream 4 set to premiere next year on April 15, 2011, the story is still unknown. But the idea is for the film to be “be seen as a passing of the baton to a new generation of slasher victims.”
Filming is expected to begin in July.
