The Hollywood Reporter has some new details concerning the cast of Scream 4. Apparently, Dimension is in negotiations with Lake Bell, Ashley Greene, Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin.

If deals are concluded, Greene would play Campbell’s cousin Jill, essentially the heroine of the movie, and Panettiere would play her best friend, a nerdy film geek. Culkin would play a potential love interest for Jill.

Bell is negotiating to play a police officer who knew Sidney (Campbell) from high school.

Scream 4 will reunite Wes Craven with the original cast of survivors, Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courtney Cox. The film will take place 10 years after Scream 3 and will be set in Sidney Prescott’s hometown of Woodsboro. Scream 4 is expected to start filming in July, with a release date of April 15, 2011.
