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
