The fist time I saw Anna Faris was when she played Cindy Campbell in the original Scary Movie back in 2000, and she’s been a loyal staple of the franchise ever since. But all things change, and it doesn’t look like she’ll be back for Scary Movie 5.
Faris told Coming Soon, “No, I don’t think I’m going to do it. I don’t think I’m part of that. I don’t know exactly what’s happening with it, but I hear it’s sort of in the works and stuff.” While that’s not a flat out no, it doesn’t sound like she’s in the loop. Nor does it really sound like she cares to be. I actually think this is a good thing, both her and the franchise have been good to each other, and four films is enough. Of course, I’m a little tainted by the fact that I think she can still be funny – something the Scary Movie franchise can’t exactly lay claim to anymore.
Casting is still underway and David Zucker, who wrote and directed both Scary Movie 3 and 4, will be returning to co-write and produce the fifth installment alongside new director Malcolm Lee (Roll Bounce, Undercover Brother). 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) are all rumored to be returning as well.
