Movie News: Roberts Snags Scream 4 Role

The recent uproar in news surrounding the brand-new slasher sequel
Scream 4 - written and directed by the original team, Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven.

Last week it was reported Twilight star Ashley Greene was taking the title role of Jill, a role rumoured to be related to original star Sidney. Now, news is circulating the web that child-star Emma Roberts has snagged the role which, in my eyes, will decide the fate of the entire film.

Starring in a film so far from what she is used to, Jill could be the make-or-break role for Emma Roberts. With Noel Clarke's being released next week, she's differentiating herself from her undoubtedly typecast roles of the squeaky-clean, clich├ęd teen.

Alongside Roberts, original stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courtney Cox-Arquette are returning, with additional stars such as Lake Bell (It's Complicated) and, while still unconfirmed, Rory Culkin and Hayden Panettiere.

Filming for Scream 4 begins this June.

UPDATE: Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin are now confirmed to be starring alongside Emma Roberts.
