Hayden Panettiere is the latest addition to director/producer Wes Craven’s Scream 4. Panettiere joins a cast that includes Emma Roberts, Rory Culkin, and original players Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Araquette.
The “Hereos” star will play the film geek friend of Jill Prescott (Roberts), Sidney’s cousin.
Scream 4 is the start of a new trilogy that aims to frighten audiences while poking fun at modern day horror cliches much like the original did in 1996. Writer Kevin Williamson (“The Vampire Diaries”) is once again attached.
The Scream series has earned over $500 million in worldwide coin.
