Adam Brody, Marley Shelton, and Erik Knudsen join Scream 4

Casting continues amid a couple of departures for the horror sequel SCREAM 4.

Joining up are dudes Adam Brody (COP OUT, JENNIFER'S BODY) and Erik Knudsen (SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, YOUTH IN REVOLT) and babe Marley Shelton (WOMEN IN TROUBLE, GRINDHOUSE).

According to THR's Heat Vision blog, Brody will play a cop and recent college grad "who was raised on the 'CSI' TV series." Shelton will play a deputy who knew Neve Campbell's character back in high school (the well-endowed Lake Bell was previously attached to this role). And finally, Knudsen will be the film's comedy relief, filling a role similar to that of Jamie Kennedy's from the original as someone "who is familiar with horror movie conventions".

The film is also apparently SO secretive that the actors themselves have no idea how it ends. From Heat Vision: "To preserve the identity of the killer, Craven and Williamson are operating under several layers of secrecy, including not sending the script to agencies. At a table read last week, the actors were told to stop reading at page 75 to prevent even those already cast in the film from knowing the climax." Take that, INCEPTION!

SCREAM 4 is currently shooting in Michigan and is looking at an April 2011 release.
