It's Official: Scream 4 Gets Hayden Panettiere And Rory Culkin
Clearly Wes Craven is on top of things because as the Scream 4 June start date quickly approaches, the casting confirmations are pouring in. Just yesterday we told you Emma Roberts, not Ashley Greene, will lead the cast as Jill, Sidney Prescottís cousin, and now her best friend and boy toy have joined, to be played respectively by Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin.
When we first found out Craven had his eye on Panettiere and Culkin, Panettiereís role was describes as Jillís best pal and a film geek and Culkinís as Jillís love interest. The report from Coming Soon doesnít mention these parts, but I think itís safe to assume those are the roles theyíll play.
The funny thing is, that initial announcement had Lake Bell one step ahead of her potential co-stars. While they merely received offers, she was already in the midst of negotiations, yet her involvement still hasnít been confirmed. If and when that deal does go through, Bellís character will be a police officer who knew Sidney in high school.
Assuming Roberts survives, that only leaves us with three potential deaths; well, six if you include David Arquette, Courteney Cox and Neve Campbell who are rumored to finally come into contact with the killerís bowie knife early on in the fourth film. Where will Craven go from here? Will he continue casting young Hollywoodís hottest or save some cash for production time? Weíll probably find out soon enough.
