According to Heat Vision Twilight actress Ashley Greene and Hayden Panettiere (the cheerleader from Heroes) are in talks to join Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette in Scream 4.
If the deals work out Greene will play Campbell’s cousin Jill, who has been described as the heroine of the movie, and Panettiere will play her best friend who will likely get killed off is a nerdy film geek.
Also in talks are Lake Bell (It’s Complicated) who will play a police officer who knew Sidney (Campbell) from high school, and Rory Culkin (Twelve) who will be a potential love interest for Jill (Greene).
Apparently actors are having a difficult time deciding whether certain roles are for them as director Wes Craven and Dimension Films are not sending the script to agencies in order to protect its secrecy. Scream 4 will be made by the same creative team behind the original trilogy, so if they’ve seen the previous films they should know what to expect.
Filming is expected to begin in July, with a release date set for next April.
