Roberts will play the cousin of Scream star Neve Campbell, and essentially the heroine in the rebooted horror franchise.

Greene’s deal was never completed, and in stepped Roberts. The 19-year-old daughter of Eric Roberts starred in the feature version of Nancy Drew and was last seen in New Line’s ensemble romantic comedy Valentine’s Day.

Wes Craven is returning to the director’s chair for Scream 4, and Kevin Williamson is back writing the script. Shooting begins in June in Michigan.
