Just four days before Wes Craven’s upcoming Scream 4 was going to start shooting in Ann Arbor, Michigan, actress Lake Bell has had to drop out of the movie due to scheduling conflicts. Bell was going to play Deputy Judy Hicks, a police officer who knew Neve Campbell’s Sidney from high school, a character described as “decidedly sexy but a bit off.” (Shouldn’t be hard to find another actress who fits that bill in Hollywood.)
As Bell posted on her Twitter feed last night:
Sucks: Scheduling conflicts with my current gig means I cant do #Scream4! (Hey horror bloggers, I know who the killer is…) #i’llnevertell
With shooting set to begin on Monday, expect another name to be attached to the role very quickly.
