Production on SCREAM 4 is winding down, but it seems they’re still pulling in potential victims for Ghostface. Hit the jump to find out the latest members of the cast and see a bloody new image from the set!
The Hollywood Reporter announced that FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS actress Aimee Teegarden (pictured, left) has joined the large ensemble already in the film, as has Britt Robertson (says Zap2It), of the television drama LIFE UNEXPECTED. Returning cast members Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courtney Cox, as well as newcomers to the franchise Emma Roberts, Hayden Panetierre, Adam Brody, Mary McDonnell and Anthony Anderson, will accompany the two actresses. Cameos from PULSE’s Kristen Bell and TRUE BLOOD’s Anna Paquin have also been confirmed.
Plot is being kept under wraps but the film will mark a return to Woodsboro and see the slasher Ghostface wreak havoc on Sydney, Dewey and Gale, as well as a new generation of screamers.
Excitingly, Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson have returned to direct and write, respectively, with SCREAM 3 writer Ehren Kruger asked to take a pass on the script. Just this weekend, Craven tweeted the crimson-splattered image below from the set, possibly a warning of the hazards of white couches?
SCREAM 4 hits April 15, 2011. For more on the film, keep an eye on Fango as news comes in. In the meantime, Craven’s new film, MY SOUL TO TAKE (see preview in Fango #298, on sale next month), releases October 8 and to get excited for both, you can take a look back at some of his past achievements in my weekly series on the director.
