London: Jennifer Aniston is not joining the starcast of `Scream 4`, says a studio representative.

A recent tabloid report claimed that Aniston, 41, will play a woman murdered in the opening sequence of the movie as a "favour" to Courteney Cox, a friend who is reprising her role in the franchise.

But the spokesperson for The Weinstein Company, which is producing the film, insists that this casting report is "not true", reports a news website.

Aniston, who usually sticks to romantic comedies, hasn`t appeared in a horror movie since 1993`s cult classic `Leprechaun`.
