Hayden Panettiere's probably going to wish she still had Claire Bennett's super-human abilities to heal: The 'Heroes' actress has just signed on to 'Scream 4,' the slasher franchise which is known for offing pretty blonds (and, really, anyone else) in very gruesome ways.

She and Rory Culkin ('Signs') are part of the horror franchise's new blood for its fourth installment, Variety reports. The cast includes Emma Roberts and Lake Bell, who'll join the stars of the original 'Scream,' Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox Arquette, and David Arquette.

Last month, screenwriter Kevin Williamson confirmed that one original cast member would not be back: Jamie Kennedy. He told FEARNet, "We're not that universe where you can bring people back from the dead. That would be just a cheat. It's such a disservice."
