Erica Ash (pictured) is set to join Ashley Tisdale in Dimension’s Scary Movie 5, which begins production this summer, says Variety.
Malcolm Lee will helm the latest franchise installment. Since coming under new ownership, Miramax has continued to work with the Weinstein Co. on select sequels, including the next Scary Movie pic.
Buchwald/Fortitude-repped Ash will play a friend and rival dancer to Tisdale’s character. Best known for her work on “MADtv,” Ash was most recently seen in the Broadway play “Baby it’s You.”
Scary Movie 5 will spoof: Black Swan, Paranormal Activity, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and 127 Hours.
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.
