Lake Bell drops out of starring role in Scream 4

06.25.2010

Just four days before filming was set to begin on SCREAM 4, actress Lake Bell was forced to drop out of the production due to scheduling conflicts. The actress posted an update on Twitter saying, "Sucks: Scheduling conflicts with my current gig means I cant do #Scream4! (Hey horror bloggers, I know who the killer is...)" Her "current gig" is the untitled Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher comedy (formerly titled F*CKBUDDIES) that Ivan Reitman is directing for Paramount.

Bell was set to play one of the larger parts in the movie, Deputy Judy Hicks. The original casting call described the character as "A police officer, decidedly sexy but a bit off, she knew Sidney from high school. Didnít make a big enough impression for Sidney to remember her. Likes her boss, Dewey, perhaps a little too much."

Director Wes Craven and The Weinstein Co. will no doubt be searching for a replacement quickly so they can keep the schedule on track. (The news just became public but I'm sure Craven and crew were alerted to this issue far before today.)

Extra Tidbit: They were supposed to play former classmates but Bell is actually five years younger than Neve Campbell.

Who the fuck is Lake Bell?

I sure hope she can act, because I saw a hotter chick behind the counter at Walmart the other day.

yo, kickass, why do you keep pretending to be some kind of insider on all these movies? i don't believe you know shit or you'd be spewing. give it up, please, it's lame. as for SCREAM 4 and Lake Bell, i hope they are able to find a quality replacement before they need her. but this is not a problem. people get replaced all the time, and it's often for the better. just look at keanu reeves instead of will smith in the matrix. will smith is great, but we all know the movie just wouldn't

Who?

I have no idea who she is. Of course there seem to be a dozen actresses, all around the same age, that look pretty well the same getting roles (or losing roles), who are "famous" without me knowing. Where do they all come from?

Is that a step backward that she dropped out of a starring role in Scream4 to be in an Ashton Kutcher movie? Then again it does have Natalie Portman...

Funny if she just gave away the killer lol

Just from that character description she sounded like she would end up being the killer. I mean come on she knew Sidney back in high school but Sidney doesn't remember her? Sounds like she was probably obessed with Sidney and Dewey and wanted to be just like Sidney.

Lol! She's the smart one...

She probably saw how horrible the script is and bailed on it. Kudos to her!

Kinda

crap that she would wait until NOW to say she can't be in it (unless this is old news and she's only breaking it now). Too bad, cus I'm sure Scream 4 would have not only made more money but be the better film. Oh well, she's replaceable and since filming starts on Monday, I'm sure they already have someone for the role. I want a better known cameo for this role!
