As reported this week on EM, Scream creator and writer Kevin Williamson is working on Scream 4, which has been greenlit by Dimension Films. Hot on the heels of the announcement that David Arquette and Courtney Cox had been signed on to reprise their original roles as Dewey Riley and Gail Weathers, rumors began surfacing on Twitter that the highly talented lead actors from Supernatural, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, were on the ‘short list’ of actors being approached to star in the movie along side Arquette and Cox. We contacted the respective publicist for Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles to seek confirmation of this information. Publicists for both actors issued a statement to us that the rumors of their clients being approached or considered for roles in Scream 4 are false.
So it seems that the only Scream(ing) that Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have awaiting for them in their future are those of the fangirls and fanguys who will be attending the Vancouver Creation Salute to Supernatural convention taking place the weekend of August 28-30, 2009 in Vancouver, B.C.
Supernatural, the hit CW/WB television series about two brothers named Sam and Dean Winchester who battle monsters, ghosts and demons went into production for its fifth season on July 2, 2009 with season five to begin airing on the CW on September 10th in its Thursday nights at 9PM timeslot.
There is still no production date available for Scream 4 but word is that Neve Campbell has declined to return in her role as Sydney Prescott.
Jared Padalecki is repped by LAN-BNC. Jensen Ackles is repped by PNCPR.
