Emma Roberts (Nancy Drew, Hotel for Dogs) has joined the cast of Wes Craven’s ‘Scream 4’. According to EW, Roberts is expected to play Jill, one of the film’s primary heroines.
Scream 4 reunites Wes Craven with Kevin Williamson, who kicked off a horror- movie revival with his “Scream” script in 1996.
The story brings back original cast members Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox, though the new flick is seen as a passing of the baton to a new generation of slasher victims, with Williamson already under contract to write a fifth installment.
Filming is scheduled to commence this July in Michigan. The film is currently slated to hit theaters on April 15, 2011.
