New Scream 4 Pic: Look Out Behind You Emma Roberts!

Young Emma Roberts, the heir apparent to the “Scream” franchise, is featured in the newest pic from Wes Craven’s “Scream 4”. I guess if she’s going to carry the franchise from part 4 on out, she best get used to having dudes in black robes sneaking up behind her with huge honking objects in their hands. And I’m not just talking about Ghostface in the movies. Ba-zing! Ahem.

In Scream 4, Sidney Prescott, now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey and Gale, who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (played by Emma Roberts) and her Aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell). Unfortunately Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.

Roberts co-stars with Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox-Arquette, David Arquette, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, Anthony Anderson, Adam Brody, Mary McDonnell, Marley Shelton, Nico Tortorella, Marielle Jaffe, Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin, Lucy Hale, Shanae Grimes, Aimee Teegarden, and Brittany Robertson. Wes Craven returns to direct.

Sneaking up in theaters April 15, 2011.
