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.

We haven’t covered it very much, but in addition to the now-shooting Scream 4, Wes Craven has another movie coming up. This isn’t a sequel or anything, but it is very much in keeping with the basic Wes Craven methodology: high school kids are in danger thanks to an evil legacy that haunts their town, and may be possessing one of them. Check out the trailer for the film, My Soul to Take, after the break. Read More »

Liev Schreiber has confirmed something that seems pretty obvious to me, something that most people suspected – His character Cotton Weary will not return in Scream 4.
“Cotton is dead!” Schreiber told IGN. “I know, I keep reading on the Internet that I’m doing Scream 4, but I don’t know where that comes from. No one ever told me I was doing Scream 4. No one ever mentioned anything to me.”
While Schreiber isn’t expected to make an appearance in the new sequel, yet another Scream series veteran has announced his plans to return for the fourth film. I’m not talking about the previously announced Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette or even Roger L. Jackson, the voice actor who provides the creepy voice of Ghostface. Who is it? Find out after the jump.

UPDATE: There might be more truth and ugliness to this than I first thought was the case. New info at the end of the article.
We’ve been running a lot of Scream 4 info, and in a piece I ran yesterday one commenter asked why we’ve been covering it so much. The simple answer is “it’s what we do,” but the more complex answer is that there’s a lot of motion on the picture this week. Partially as a by-product of trying to keep the script secret, the film has been casting quite a few roles even as photography has begun.
But today the big rumor has been that there’s been a total screenwriter switcheroo on the picture, with the effect of not only making big changes to this film, but demolishing the option for a fifth. As is so often the case there seems to be some truth to the story, surrounded by a lot of exaggeration. Read More »
Briefly: The Scream 4 casting machine keeps rolling. Yesterday saw a lot of movement in the cast with Lauren Graham dropping out (due to scheduling commitments, according to her reps) and Adam Brody, Marley Shelton and Erik Knudsen stepping in.
Now Community‘s Alison Brie and Mary McDonnell of Battlestar Galactica (and much more) are taking roles as well, according to The Wrap. We don’t have a breakdown of McDonnell’s role, but Brie will play the ambitious assistant to Neve Campbell‘s returning character Sidney Prescott. Is ‘ambitious’ horror movie code for ‘she dies?’ Probably.
Reportedly the script is being so closely guarded that the cast hasn’t even been allowed to see past a certain point in the script — with casual slips of the tongue or text being so common, Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson are doing their damndest to keep the story’s secrets under wraps. Good luck to them; I’d like to be able to see the film without having had every element of the story given up first.
Production has begun on Wes Craven‘s Scream 4, and the first videos and photos have begun to appear online, including a look at Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, now a decade older and with short hair.
