Hollywoodnews.com: Horror master Wes Craven isn’t going to let those “Twilight” kids have all of the fun this week.
As he and scripter Kevin Williamson reunite for a fourth “Scream” film, details regarding casting and plot are leaking out, generating serious interest in a franchise that died more than a decade ago. (“Scream 3,” also directed by Craven, came out in 2000.)
We already know that original “Scream” queen Neve Campbell is returning to the franchise to play Sidney Prescott. She’ll be joined by fellow “Scream” vets David Arquette and Courteney Cox. This morning, we’re learning that Adam Brody, Marley Shelton and Erik Knudsen have been added the mix, and that the horror thriller started filming earlier this week in Michigan.
The Hollywood Reporter also learned that Craven’s plan is to recruit a slew of fresh-faced, young victims, namely Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin and Nico Tortorella. Brody will play a police officer. Shelton will play a deputy who knew Campbell’s character in high school.
“Scream 4” sounds like it has potential, if Craven and his cast can get back to what made the original so much fun. We’ll find out when the film opens on April 15, 2011.
