Emma Roberts has joined the cast of New Line’s hotly-anticipated slasher flick, Scream 4, Entertainment Weekly said Thursday.
The Nancy Drew star, 19, has landed the role of Jill, a main character in the horror revival — directed and produced by veteran lensman Wes Craven.
“Emma’s talent, beauty and range will add immensely to the sophistication, intensity and fun of the Scream franchise as it returns to the screen once more,” Craven said praising the rising starlet in a statement issued this afternoon.
According to a scoop from The Hollywood Reporter, Twilight actress Ashley Greene, formerHeroes starlet Hayden Panettiere, Lake Bell, and Rory Culkin of Twelve fame have also been offered starring roles as the new generation of murder victims in Scream 4.
David Arquette, Courteney Cox, and Neve Campbell — who starred as Dewey, Gail, and Sidney, respectively, in the first three Scream films — will reprise their roles in the forthcoming flick.
Scream 4 opens in theaters April 15. Shooting is expected to begin in Chicago in early July.
