What’s going on with the Scream 4 production? Last week we learned that co-star Lake Bell had dropped out of the film due to some scheduling conflict and now we’re hearing the same thing about Lauren Graham. The former “Gilmore Girls” star is said to be on the outs with the sequel thanks to another job.

According to Ghouls on Film, a close source on the set of Scream 4 revealed that Graham will no longer star as Kate Kessler the mother of Emma Roberts’ character Jill. The police office is gone (Bell) and now the mother of the teenage protagonist is out there door too! No official word has been released from the studio or her representatives so there’s a chance this could be a minor misprint — we hope!

Who is going to play the cool, still attractive mom in the movie now? The cast for Scream 4 currently includes Anthony Anderson along with Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, Nico Tortorella. It sounds like this film is cursed or its actors have been slighted with some serious bad luck.

Scream 4 is currently in production in Michigan.

What do you think of Graham leaving the cast? Who could be her replacement?
