lauren graham adam brody 'Scream 4' shuffle: The 411 on Lauren Graham's exit, Adam Brody's entry and script changesWhat is going on with “Scream 4″? These cast changes are making us dizzy. Though Lauren Graham confirmed her role in the highly anticipated slasher flick just 10 days ago, she’s no longer involved with the production.

Sources close to the production tell Zap2it exclusively that there have been some very significant script changes… and the changes aren’t all good. In Kevin Williamson‘s original script, Graham’s role was “a fun role. Not big, but it had some meaty scenes.” Shooting began this week, and in the latest draft, “the part was reduced. She had like four lines.”

Another source says, “The script changes have put a real strain on the cast. The original ‘Scream’ cast members aren’t happy with the way that things are happening, so it’s probably a good thing that [Graham] dropped out before things get messy.”

]]>Lake Bell was also
cast in the flick before she had to drop out.

“Sucks: Scheduling
conflicts with my current gig means I cant do #Scream4! (Hey horror
bloggers, I know who the killer is…) #i’llnevertell,” the “How to
Make it in America”
actress tweeted.

Hopefully,
the latest cast member, Adam Brody, will stick around. According
to our sources, the former star of “The O.C”  will play a rookie
cop who is thrown into the inevitable “Scream” gore-fest just after
graduating from the Police Academy. Dewey Jr. done O.C. style?

More deets as they develop…
