DAWSON'S CREEK star Joshua Jackson is poised to terrify fans of the hit TV drama - he's signed up for a role in Wes Craven's new horror movie CURSED.

Singer Mya has also joined the all-star cast of Portia De Rossi, CHRISTINA RICCI, Shannon Elizabeth and Scott Foley in the film, which will finally begin shooting this month (NOV03) after the project was put on hold so movie bosses could plan more special effects and develop the finale.

But the changes have forced producers to axe cameo roles from former child stars Corey Feldman and Scott Baio.

Cursed - which sees the SCREAM team of Craven and writer Kevin Williamson reuniting - tells the story of a werewolf attack which unites three strangers who must fight for survival against the beast and its curse.
