Updated with a second trailer: When I saw that actress Ashley Tisdale tweeted out the official one-sheet for Scary Movie 5 (trailer), it literally blew my mind. Why? I legitimately forgot all about this spoofer, especially in the wake of Open Road’s disastrous A Haunted House, one of the most unfunny movies I’ve ever witnessed.
Well, here’s your reminder! Dimension Films’ Scary Movie sequel open in theaters April 12! It stars Tisdale, as well as Terry Crews, Marisa Saks, Erica Ash, Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Simon Rex, Molly Shannon, Roland Powell, Heather Locklear and Katt Williams.
It’s from the same producer as the third and fourth Scary Movie sequels, thus I think it’s fair to expect another laugh-free hour and a half filled with dated pop culture jokes. SMFH.
In the film from director Malcolm Lee, “Snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed French dance company director Pierre is putting on a new production. Jody (Tisdale), a Caucasian late-20s mother of two and her late-20s African American friend Kendra (Ash) are both vying for the lead in the production. Jody’s extremely controlling former dancer mother is determined that Jody will have the brilliant career that eluded her. The highly skilled mid-30s Diva veteran dancer with the company, Heather Daltry (Shannon), gets cut from the production and goes berserk.”
Scary Movie 5, which is said to be a reboot of sorts, will spoof: Black Swan, Paranormal Activity, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and 127 Hours. READ MORE
In theaters January 11 from Open Road Films is Michael Tiddes’ A Haunted House, co-written by and starring Marlon Wayans. Also starring Cedric The Entertainer, David Koechner, Nick Swardson and Essence Atkins. In the Wayans family tradition of successful movies like Scary Movie 1 & 2, Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, and, most recently, Dance Flick, Marlon Wayans co-wrote the script for A Haunted House, along with Rick Alvarez, who has produced several Wayans family movies.
“In an outrageous send up of the Paranormal Activity movies, The Devil Inside and other “found footage” movies, A Haunted House features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship… or, more importantly, his sex life.”
And now there’s a new clip from the film, which – as a heads up – features a ghost getting kicked in the nuts. Head inside to check out it out. READ MORE
Dimension Films has provided us with a second still from Scary Movie 5 that depicts Angela “Big Ang” Raiola and Sherée Whitfield who go to blows in what they call “an unforgettable fight scene.” All I’ve seen are two of the most boring images ever released.
Directed by Malcom Lee, the sequel also stars Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Ashley Tisdale,Terry Crews, Marisa Saks, Erica Ash, Simon Rex, Molly Shannon, Roland Powell and Heather Locklear.
Now in theaters April 19, 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.
Scary Movie 5, which is said to be a reboot of sorts, will spoof: Black Swan, Paranormal Activity, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and 127 Hours.

Getting unpredictable Lindsay Lohan to do a cameo role in Scary Movie 5 has been a frightening experience for producers as she tried to avoid a scene making fun of her troubles, reports the NY Post.
Dimension Films signed Lohan to play a cameo in the horror spoof opposite Charlie Sheen. But over the past two weeks — as the date for filming approached — Lohan disappeared, blew off rehearsals, missed her flight to the set and even bizarrely claimed she had walking pneumonia.
The mag is told that the troubled starlet “freaked out” after seeing the script was poking fun at her. At the 11th hour, Lohan did report for work, however only after she was threatened with a lawsuit by a Hollywood legal eagle and a private jet was sent to pick her up. (This reminds me of the film Airheads when the band demands a football helmet filled with cottage cheese.)
A rep for Lohan said, “These stories are untrue, and she is willingly fulfilling all of her obligations.” Reps for Dimension had no comment.
It’s being reported that both Lindsay Lohan (I Know Who Killed Me) and Charlie Sheen (Machete Kills) are both signed on for Dimension Films’ Scary Movie 5.
Sources say that the ever-comebacking Sheen, despite being uncomfortably killed off in Scary Movie 4, will be back for the next sequel, which is being touted as a complete reboot of the franchise and is due in theaters January 11, 2013.
It’s also confirmed that Faris has chosen to freeze her number at four and will not be back for the new film.
The duo join previously announced Erica Ash and Ashley Tisdale, with Anthony Anderson, Regina Hall and Kevin Hart rumored to also return.
Malcolm Lee directs the retooling that will spoof Black Swan, Paranormal Activity, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and 127 Hours.
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.
Audiences will laugh twice as hard this fall as Lionsgate debuts two hilarious Miramax films on Blu-ray Disc – Scary Movie 2 and Scary Movie 3: UNRATED. Presented for the very first time in 1080P High Definition and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, both horror parodies star two of comedy’s leading ladies — Anna Faris and Regina Hall. Available on September 20, each Blu-ray Disc is loaded with an assortment of special features including deleted scenes, featurettes and audio commentaries.
Scary Movie 2: The follow-up spoof picks up from where the original Scary Movie satire left off, taking aim at supernatural thrillers like The Exorcist and Stigmata, among others. This time around, Marlon and Shawn Wayans (White Chicks) star as Shorty and Ray who are both tricked by their professor into visiting a haunted house as part of a school project. Cindy (Faris) and Brenda (Hall) join their peers for the “project.” When things start getting messy, the gang must work together to find a way to capture the ghostly menace. Tori Spelling (TV’s “Beverly Hills 90210″) and Chris Elliott (There’s Something About Mary) also star in this wild and zany sequel.
Scary Movie 3: UNRATED: After surviving the hijinks of the first two films, Cindy Campbell (Faris) is back with a new crew, lampooning horror hits such as The Ring, Signs and The Others. A mysterious videotape is circulating around town, and whoever views the tape has seven days left to live. News reporter Cindy Campbell is next on the list, and tries to work out a way to prevent her death. Meanwhile, crop circles have also been appearing in the local farm, and Cindy suspects that both mysteries are linked. But can she make the connection before the world ends? Thrillers, blockbusters and pop culture get their best goosing yet in this funnier and more explicit unrated version!
