Actress Ashley Greene won't Scream after all. The Twilight star was recently linked to Wes Craven's developing Scream 4, the latest installment in the slasher franchise set to start filming next month. But Greene is out, paving the way for Hotel for Dogs actress Emma Roberts to take her place.
Roberts will star in Scream 4 as Jill, cousin to Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott. She's said to take the central role in the film alongside her nerdy pal played by Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere, who is still fielding an offer from producers to join the cast.
"I'm so excited to be part of this groundbreaking franchise," Roberts said of joining Scream 4. "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," added Craven.
