The celebrities are piling up on the set of "Scream 4."
As with most of the roles in this latest “Scream” installment, it’s unknown as to who Paquin and Bell will portray, but we do know they’ll be sharing the screen with other “Scream” newcomers like Hayden Panettiere, Emma Roberts, Adam Brody and Alison Brie.
Roberts will play Sidney Prescott's cousin Jill, who has been painted as the heroine of the film, while Panettiere is Jill’s film geek best friend, Kirby. Brody will play the boy in blue as the recently graduated Detective Hoss, and “Mad Men’s” Brie will play Sidney’s personal assistant who’s jealous of Sidney’s fame.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a scream without Sidney Prescott, so Neve Campbell is returning to reprise her role as the tortured young woman, along with two of the "Scream" franchise's other regulars, Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette.
The “Scream” trilogy, which has earned close to $300 million domestically, had Wes Craven directing for all three installments, and the horror king is back on board as director/producer of “Scream 4.” The slasher is expected to slice into theaters in April 2011.
