An update to EW’s report that Malcolm Lee (Roll Bounce, Undercover Brother) will direct 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.
A new article over at Variety reveals a few of the franchise films that Scary Movie 5 will spoof. They include: Black Swan, Paranormal Activity, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and 127 Hours.
Casting is underway but David Zucker, who wrote and directed both Scary Movie 3 and 4, will also be returning to co-write and produce the fifth installment alongside Lee.
Before Lee was hired, Bloody Disgusting had confirmed that 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) would all star. This could change with a new director, especially after the success of Hart’s Think Like A Man this past weekend.
Production is slated to begin this summer.
