Add yet another gorgeous young victim to Ghostface’s murder list. Aimee Teegarden, also known as Julie Taylor on Friday Night Lights, has been cast in Wes Craven’s upcoming Scream 4, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The horror sequel written by Kevin Williamson is scheduled for release April 15, 2011.
Teegarden will appear along with returning Screamers Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette and brand new players Anthony Anderson, Marielle Jaffe, Anna Paquin, Kristin Bell, Emma Roberts, Adam Brody, Shenae Grimes, Lucy Hale, Marley Shelton, Hayden Panettiere and others.
