Ashley Greene, Hayden Panettiere, Lake Bell, and Rory Culkin in Talks to Join SCREAM 4

     May 20, 2010

With Scream 4 set to open next year on April 15, 2011, Dimension Studios has begun looking for fresh new faces to join the horror movie franchise.  The studio 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 film.  Heat Vision reports that if the deals are made, Green would be playing Campbell’s cousin in the film named Jill with Culkin being cast as her potential love interest.  Panettiere would be playing a nerdy film geek who is her best friend.  Meanwhile, Bell will be playing a police officer who knew Sidney (Campbell) from high school.

The story is still unknown due to secrecy but the plan is for the film to “be seen as a passing of the baton to a new generation of slasher victims.”  This makes sense since Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven, who kicked off the series as writer and director, respectively, will resume their respective roles for this latest installment.  Filming is expected to begin in July.  Here’s the first poster if you missed it.

    So, Neve will die in the beginning and that will bring her cousin into it and the police officer who is looking around for who did it. Good to know.
