Craven puts the bite on Portia

Ok, more on “Cursed”. There’s no word yet on who the new male cast member was that was added to the cast, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Portia De Rossi [“Ally McBeal”] has also signed on. The actress, who stars in the Fox series "Arrested Development" from Imagine Television, will appear in the film’s opening sequence, the specifics of which are being kept under wraps. The Dimension Films project – from the "Scream" team of Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson – was put on an extended hiatus during the summer so the filmmakers could plan for more special effects than originally anticipated and further develop the ending. What De Rossi’s signing means is that Mandy Moore might no longer be in the film. After all, wasn’t she originally the opening scene’s victim? Additionally, Corey Feldman also got the chop.
