Kennedy to ‘Scream’ once more

NEW YORK — Jamie Kennedy, who played Randy in Wes Craven’s “Scream,” will reprise his role in the sequel to Dimension’s $100 million blockbuster, which begins lensing in June.

Kennedy will join Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, Jerry O’Connell, David Arquette, Jada Pinkett and Liev Schreiber in the next chapter of “Scream,” which is still untitled. The pic will be helmed by Craven from Kevin Williamson’s screenplay. It will be produced by Marianne Maddalena and Cathy Konrad.

Kennedy will be seen later this year in “Old Friends,” which also stars Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Greg Kinnear and Skeet Ulrich. He recently wrapped a starring role in the indie comedy “Sparkler.” Other film credits include “William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet” and “Clockwatchers,” which unspooled at Sundance earlier this year.

The deal was negotiated on behalf of Dimension by Cary Granat, head of production, and Neil Sacker, executive vice president of business and legal affairs. On behalf of Kennedy, the deal was negotiated by Katie Mason of APA and Andrea Pett-Joseph of Brillstein-Grey.
