With just weeks to go before Wes Craven rolls cameras on Scream 4, /Film has received a recent casting breakdown that sheds a bit more light on those cast, who they will play. The sequel, written by Kevin Williamson, indeed brings audiences back to Woodsboro where all of Sidney’s problems began.
Neve Campbell is reprising her role as Sid and she’ll be joined by:
Emma Roberts will play Jill Kessler, âone of the filmâs primary heroines,â a cousin to Neve Campbellâs character in the series. Described as âpretty in an ingenue way. Smart, strong. A little goofy, but she makes it sexy. Full of contradictions, but instantly likeable. Not a mean bone in her body. Theyâre not close, but Jill is Sidneyâs cousin.â
Hayden Panettiere will play Jillâs best friend, Kirby Reed â a nerdy film geek. Described as âCute and quirky, was a tomboy until a year ago, now sheâs alternative, cool and sexy. Jillâs best friend. Sheâs a pop culture and horror aficionado;â
Rory Culkin will play Charlie Walker, a potential love interest for Jill. Here is the character description: âMessy cute. Friends with Jill, Trevor, Kirby, and Olivia. A little cocky, he likens himself to âRandyâ from Scream 1 without the nerd part. No such luck, heâs definitely a nerd. May or may not have a crush on Jill. Heâd never admit it if he does;â
Lake Bell will play Duputy Judy Hicks, a police officer who knew Sidney (Campbell) from high school. The casting call described the character as follows: âA police officer, decidedly sexy but a bit off, she knew Sidney from high school. Didnât make a big enough impression for Sidney to remember her. Likes her boss, Dewey, perhaps a little too much. NAME CAMEOS PREFERRED;â
There are a number of other characters that have not yet been cast, read about them here.
