Emma Roberts has been cast as Jill Prescott (Sidney’s cousin) in director/producer Wes Craven’s soon-to-start-shooting Scream 4. She joins old-school regulars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette.
Emma tells EW:
I’m so excited to be part of this ground-breaking franchise. It’s the perfect opportunity for me to do something completely different than I’ve ever done before.
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.
Emma is the 19-year-old daughter of B-movie staple Eric Roberts (Sharktopus) and niece to Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts (Mary Reilly).
Scream 4 begins shooting in Michigan on June 28.
