Emma Roberts Joins Scream 4

Emma Roberts has joined Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox-Arquette, and David Arquette in Wes Craven’s Scream 4. Roberts is rumored to be portraying Campbell’s high school aged cousin in the horror flick, and the central character in the new film. From the above picture, I could definitely see a family resemblance.

While this is the first official casting, other rumored casting has included Lake Bell as a Wosoboro cop, Hayden Panettiere as a film geek, and Ashley Greene and Rory Culkin in unknown roles. We have no real confirmation if any of these will actually pan out. Personally, I hope that Hayden Panettiere is no where near this film.  Especially not in a Randy-like role.

Am I the only one that wants to see Patrick Dempsey’s Detective Mark Kincaid and Heather Matarazzo’s Martha Meeks return? Having a detective in the mix would help as the murder mystery unfolds, and if we can’t have Randy, than his kid sister is the next best thing.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more casting news in the near future as the film starts lensing in June in Michigan.  Kevin Williamson penned the script.

Scream 4, David Arquette and Courtney Cox Return

It is official, David Arquette and Courtney Cox-Arquette will be reprising their roles of Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers in Scream 4. Kevin Williamson is currently penning the script, while Wes Craven has kept the door open for a possible return to the director’s chair.

Not much is known about Scream 4‘s plot, but Kevin Williamson has said that it would be the start to a new trilogy of films, and that he originally intended to bring back Dewey, Gale, and Sidney. Sadly, Neve Campbell has said no to returning as Sidney Prescott. Maybe she’ll have a change of heart before they start shooting, or at least could still return for Scream 5 or 6 if they actually get made.

Now for some speculation.  Williamson was originally planning to bring Scream full circle and return to Woodsboro in Scream 3, before he dropped out of the project and new writer Ehren Kruger moved the setting to Hollywood. Could he use the idea in the new film? Focus on a new class at Woodsboro High School with Dewey as a consultant to the Sheriff’s office. This could allow for the return of some familiar faces, like Joseph Whipp’s Sheriff Burke, Wes Craven’s Fred the janitor, or Randy’s lovable but goofy sister Martha portrayed by Heather Matarazzo.  How awesome would it be to see her have a flashback to when she was younger and Randy used to talk about horror sequels with his pal Stuart Macher? That scene alone would make a new Scream trilogy worth it.

Sound off, what direction do you want to see a new Scream take? Should they even make one?

Tonight we get two more episodes of Scrubs, starting at 9pm on ABC. I’ve enjoyed the new season a lot. In tonight’s first episode, Cox is overwhelmed by the pressure of his new job and must reach out to Dr. Kelso for assistance. While in the second episode, Ted falls for a ukulele player but needs back up to make the first move.

Bloody Disgusting scored a pretty cool update on the status of Scream 4.  Their unnamed sources confirm the report from last July that Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson are hard at work on early prep for a new entry in the Scream series.  Williamson is handling the writing duty on the film and there is a good possibility that Craven will return to direct the film.

The film itself is said to focus on a new group of young characters, most likely high school students like the original Scream. Apparently they are trying to get David Arquette, Courtney Cox Arquette and Neve Campbell to make cameos in the film.

Personally, I think that this is the best direction that they could go with the franchise. It would keep it fresh and offer a ton of possibilities for future films. Scream 3 was a bit of a mess with an over complicated storyline and unneeded deaths (poor Cotton). Thankfully Williamson will be back to write the film after he didn’t write part 3. That alone gives me a ton of hope for the new flick. I miss good horror.

Two nights straight of new TV, what a great feeling. And this night we have a lot more variety of programming.  Standing out among the crowd is the return of Scrubs, now on ABC. Guest starring in the episode is Courteney Cox. The episode airs tonight at 9pm.

“My Jerks” Official Description: “Kelso’s replacement, Dr. Maddox (Courteney Cox), makes some changes to Sacred Heart in the Season 8 opener. Meanwhile, J.D. is frustrated by his new set of incompetent interns, and Elliot tries to control her ego.”

On Janurary 6th, Scrubs returns with two all new episodes on its new home ABC. The network was kind enough to put together this nifty “Starter Kit” for the series recapping past seasons and introducing the characters to a new audience. I’m glad to see the series continue as it is one of the most enjoyable shows on television. It is also one of the few shows that I can watch at anytime and not feel completely lost, regardless of episode order or season.

You can also catch up with full episodes from the past two seasons of Scrubs at ABC’s official webpage for the series, located here.
