Malcolm Lee and Dimension’s Scary Movie 5 is up and filming in Atlanta, Georgia and now Heather Locklear (LAX) has joined the cast as “the mother of a young dancer in a role that is more than inspired by the nightmare mom Barbara Hershey played in ‘Black Swan’.”
She joins Ashley Tisdale (“High School Musical”), Terry Crews, Marisa Saks, Erica Ash, Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Simon Rex, and Molly Shannon in the film.
“The plot involves Three dancers — one veteran performer and two upstarts who are also best friends — vie for the lead in a new production from a snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed director.” The “reboot” will spoof Black Swan, Paranormal Activity, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and 127 Hours. There’s nothing like telling your jokes ahead of time in the synopsis.
The Wayans Brothers started the franchise for Dimension Films until David Zucker came over and wrote and directed Scary Movie 3 and 4. Zucker is co-writing and producing Scary Movie 5 for an April 19, 2013 release.
