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 Prescott’s 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, Panettiere’s role was describes as Jill’s best pal and a film geek and Culkin’s as Jill’s love interest. The report from Coming Soon doesn’t mention these parts, but I think it’s safe to assume those are the roles they’ll 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 hasn’t been confirmed. If and when that deal does go through, Bell’s 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 killer’s bowie knife early on in the fourth film. Where will Craven go from here? Will he continue casting young Hollywood’s hottest or save some cash for production time? We’ll probably find out soon enough.
