With filming set to begin in the coming weeks, the cast for Scream 4 came together in just under a month. The whole thing kicked off with news of Lake Bell being in negotiations for a role and offers being sent to Ashley Greene, Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin. From there, things started to solidify; Greene is out and Emma Roberts is in, Panettiere and Culkin are officially on board, Nico Tortorella joins the gang as does Lauren Graham and, most recently, Anthony Anderson and Marielle Jaffe as well. Wes Craven seems to have no trouble attracting talent, but he has hit a bump in the road in terms of holding on to it. As tweeted by Bell (via Coming Soon), she will no longer be in the production due to scheduling conflicts. Here's the tweet in its entirety:

Sucks: Scheduling conflicts with my current gig means I cant do #Scream4! (Hey horror bloggers, I know who the killer is...) #i'llnevertell

On the bright side, it shouldn't be difficult to find someone else to play the role of Deputy Judy Hicks. She's "decidedly sexy but a bit off" and knew Sidney Prescott from back in high school, but never really made an impression on our former heroine.
