The Scream franchise is known for grabbing recognizable faces for their comedic horror mayhem. Some are names well known in the genre like Linda Blair and Joseph Whipp. Others are doomed first victims from the outside world like Jada Pinkett-Smith and Drew Barrymore (though one should never forget the likes of Demon Knight or Firestarter). If you're signing up for a cameo in Woodsboro, there's a good chance that your days are numbered, unless you get a prime gig like Carrie Fisher in Scream 3, allowing you to stay out of the killer's range.
Now Scream 4 has grabbed the likes of both Paquin and Bell, leading us to wonder: Will they become the first-killed cameos of the new incarnation?
USA Today reports that the True Blood and Veronica Mars stars will both pop up in the film, and though there's no word on how big their roles will be, it's not a stretch to expect both to suffer quick Ghostface deaths. The bigger question is whether they'll be doomed in the first few minutes -- if Scream 4 continues the bloody-death-opening formula it used for the first three films.
Personally, I'm really hoping they're not taking the place of Barrymore to kick off the revival with a one-two punch. If this is truly a passing of the torch, Sid, Dewey, and Gale should be offed when the film opens, in heart-pumping, skin-crawling horror thrills. However, if they really wanted to switch things up, maybe one of the pair can be killed in front of the other, and then become the girl who got away and revealed the return of Ghostface?
It's all pure speculation at this point, but what do you think about the latest Scream 4 additions?
