Emma Roberts Lands Starring Role in ‘Scream 4′

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that young upstart Emma Roberts is set to join the ensemble team of Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Neve Campbell in Wes Craven’s Scre4m, the first pic in a new trilogy for Dimension Films. And while the script from Kevin Williamson is being kept under wraps, sources tell EW that Roberts is expected to play Jill, one of the film’s primary heroines. Scream 4 returns to Woodsboro, the home of Sidney Prescott (Campbell). And Roberts will play a role similar to Campbell’s star-turning one in the original. Lake Bell, Ashley Greene, Hayden Panettiere, and Rory Culkin are still in talks. The three Scream movies has generated close to $300 million domestically. This latest iteration will shoot in and around Ann Arbor, Michigan beginning June 28 and arrive in theaters April 15, 2011.
