Cedric the Entertainer (Big Momma’s House, Barbershop, Intolerable Cruelty) is set to star alongside Marlon Wayans and Essence Atkins in the previously titled Smart Ass, a now untitled found footage spoof pic that is to be directed by Marlon Wayans and Mike Tiddes.
There’s also a new sales synopsis that reads: “From the creators of Scary Movie comes another hilarious horror spoof, a parody of the Paranormal Activity franchise. When newlyweds Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) move into their dream house, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, but his wife that is possessed with spirits – or as Malcolm calls it – “relationship baggage.” Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghost busters to rid her of the demon, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his marriage… or his sex life for that matter.” The pic will also spoof Paramount’s The Devil Inside.
Rick Alvarez (Dance Flick, White Chicks, Little Man) and Marlon Wayans (Scary Movie Franchise, White Chicks) penned the screenplay.
