Scream 4 casts Heroes and Tweens

AshleyGreene.jpgThe casting for the new Scream film, Scream 4, could be moving forward with some rumours appearing about who is currently in talks for the roles. Now remember we're talking about who is in talks, and that does so often fall apart at the last minute, or we find out that they weren't that far into talks after all, but this is an interesting cast.

The rumour has three ladies lined up for the film, along with one male actor, and that includes someone from Twilight and someone from Heroes, both looking for work about now anyway.

Also worth remembering is that these could be the characters we see for the franchise, because like the original, there's a group of people coming on board to be the next victims of the slasher killer in the screaming mask, and some of them to turn out to be the killers.

The original cast are on board, but only to pass things over to the new team. It means that they'll perhaps be in for the first act, or some of them might make the distance, but don't expect them back after that. This will be it for Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox.

Wes Craven with Kevin Williamson are back, with Williamson signed up to write the next instalment too, but you really want to know who is in talks for the film don't you? Well The Hollywood Reporter Heat Vision have the story, and they tell us...

Lake Bell is in negotiations, and offers are actually out to Ashley Greene from Twilight, Hayden Panettiere from Heroes, and Rory Culkin.

Now when you think about it they line up quite well to be honest, they all look young, and some of them look great, a couple even look lilke the characters that were in the original – would Greene be related to Sidney Prescott and Bell to Gale Weathers Riley? If not they're certainly looking like they could be.

Oh look, and as I read on through the story, and genuinely I wrote this much before I read these character roles, Ashley Greene would in fact be playing Sidney's cousin Jill, Rory Culkin would be playing the love interest and Hayden Panettiere her best friend.

Apparently the casting process is complicated because no one is getting to see the script, and that's a good thing because we don't want any surprises leaking out too early.

The casting line up looks okay so far, fits in well doesn't it?
