Hayden Panettiere talks “Scream 4”

, , ,

All the fans are excited about cast and crew to speak about the last installment of Scream. The first one to pronounce about it in video – after the filming started – was the cheerleader from”Heroes”, Hayden Panettiere.

She will be known as Kirby Reed, a modern movie freak – just like Randy (Jamie Kennedy) from the first trilogy.

The beauty took some time off of the sets in Malibu, last saturday (17), to participate of a charity benefit when MTV News got all the scoop.


With filming of the fourth chapter in the “Scream” franchise under way in Michigan, fans are hard-pressed to find out new details about the fourth film’s notoriously mysterious plotline. However, when MTV News recently caught up with Hayden Panettiere, she said she’s confident the filmmakers are doing the previous movies justice and that the process so far has been a blast.

“I think it’s just perfect timing, the amount of time that has passed since the last one came out,” the former “Heroes” star told MTV News. “It’s a perfect setup, with all of these films … the [fictional] ‘Stab’ [movies] and all the things like that. I think with all of the ‘Scream’ [films], the idea is to throw the audience for a loop every time.”

Panettiere acknowledged that for savvy audiences, the surprise factor is an even bigger challenge this time around.

“For an audience that is so well-versed in ‘Scream’ [films] and in what happens and who becomes the killer, blah, blah, blah, it’s trickier to throw them a curveball,” she said. “I think they’ve done a really cool job with the script. We’ve had a blast on it.”

Panettiere also heaped praise on her castmates and director Wes Craven.

“Wes Craven is, he not only is the nicest human being, but he’s a brilliant director. And it’s all the original cast as well: Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox and David Arquette. We’ve got an incredible new cast that’s come in, and we have a pretty good team.” The spunky actress said she couldn’t reveal too much about her character Kirby, only that she’s “edgy, sassy and smart. She’s a very strong character.”
