Dimension Films has tapped Stephen Leff, John Aboud (The Comebacks) and Michael Colton (The Comebacks) to pen Scary Movie 5, the latest entry in the horror spoof franchise that kicked off in 2000 under the direction of the Wayans brothers, and grossed nearly $300 million worldwide.
Bloody Disgusting is being told that Dimension is hoping to bring back stars Anthony Anderson (Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4, Scream 4), Regina Hall (Scary Movie 1-4) and Kevin Hart (Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4, Superhero Movie), who have all appeared in multiple franchise sequels. Offers have been made, although nothing has been signed yet.
Update: We’re told Zucker will NOT direct.
No word on if David Zucker is directing. Let’s hope not.
There have been a wide variety of rumored cast members ranging from Anna Faris to Hulk Hogan, with an October 2009 report claiming the franchise would be remade. The only thing officially announced is that an April 20, 2012 date is hoped to be made.
