Alison Brie

As an unabashed fan of all things Alison Brie — it’s mostly her role on Community that does it — I will say that it’s great to see her getting some work. Seeing her get tied up in Wes Craven’s Scream 4 has me thinking one thing, and one thing only: man, I hope she gets to be the killer.

It would make sense, by some twisted logic. Heat Vision reports that she’s “playing Rebecca, Sidney Prescott’s (Neve Campbell) ambitious personal assistant who secretly envies her boss’ reluctant fame and fortune.” That sounds like plenty of motive to go on a masked slashing rampage to me. Plus, who could fault Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson for giving one of their lovely lady stars a chance to do some killing.

This is all speculation, of course. Not even the cast knows how the movie is going to end. Reports from table reads at the Michigan set have said that the writer and director won’t let even the seasoned cast go past page 75 of the script (about 2/3rds of the way).

Brie joins other young talent including Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, Nico Tortorella and Erik Knudsen, Marley Shelton and Adam Brody. As well as surviving franchise stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox. Scream 4 is due in theaters April 15, 2011.
