The fact that Scream 4 is due to wrap up filming this month hasn’t stopped returning director Wes Craven adding to his already considerable cast.
Zap2it is reporting that Life Unexpected’s Brittany Roberts , while THR is reporting that Friday Night Lights’ Aimee Teegarden, will be joining Emma Roberts, Rory Culkin, Hayden Panettiere, Adam Brody, Nico Tortorella, Marielle Jaffe, Anthony Anderson, Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell – along with Scream alumni Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette.
According to Brody, who spoke to Movieline regarding his experiences filming this fourth installment:
This one’s like meta on meta on meta. Self-referencing on self-referencing. But again, because the first one is about movies, and this one’s about movies and all the murders that have taken place onscreen over the years. This one’s all about commenting on itself. And I like that.
It’s part of the fun. But that’s right: I think everything is more meta and self-referential now. I think people are more plugged-in, communication works faster, people are more educated about it — how it did or whatever.
The actor, who plays deputy to Arquette’s Dewey Riley, continued:
It was cool and kind of surreal — not just to see Ghostface, but there was one night where Wes [Craven] was directing Ghostface in his mask. He’s like, “Ghostface, you’re over there…” It was just surreal: “God, I wish I had my camera.” But to do the scenes not only in “Woodsboro,” or do them with Ghostface, but to do them with David Arquette, Courteney Cox and Neve Campbell was weird.
In lieu of a teaser or trailer, Craven has this weekend released behind-the-scenes photo’s to whet appetites for Ghostface’s latest outing.
