Lake Bell (“Boston Legal”) is in negotiations while Ashley Greene (“Twilight”), Hayden Panettiere (“Heroes”) and Rory Culkin (“Twelve”) have all been offered key starring roles in the upcoming “Scream 4” for Dimension Films says Heat Vision.
The film reunites director Wes Craven, writer Kevin Williamson and three of the original stars of the late 90’s trilogy – Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox.
Greene would play Campbell’s cousin Jill who essentially serves as the heroine of the movie. Panettiere would play her best friend and the new trilogy’s equivalent of Randy (the film geek).
Bell play a police officer who knew Sidney (Campbell) from high school, while Culkin would play a potential love interest for Jill. Due to the script’s secrecy, casting is going slowly as actors are only allowed to see character descriptions rather than whole scripts.
Craven, Williamson and Iya Labunka are producing. Filming is aiming to kick off in July in Michigan.
