Expect to see more big stars gracing the big screen when watching "Scream 4". After getting Emma Roberts and Hayden Panettiere as the new lead actresses, the movie will see Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell making appearances as well. The news was broken by USA Today before then confirmed by Dimension Films.
28-year-old Paquin, who is best known for her portrayal of Sookie Stackhouse in TV series "True Blood", and 30-year-old Bell, who recently appears in "You Again", have signed up to make cameos in the fourth installment of the horror film franchise.
