The belated fourth sequel to “Scary Movie”, this one directed by Malcolm Lee (“Undercover Brother”) and starring Ashley Tisdale in Anna Faris’s place, has begun production in Atlanta. Tisdale, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Terry Crews, Marisa Saks, and Erica Ash star.
Blackfilm report that “Scary Movie 3″ and “Scary Movie 4″ cast-member Simon Rex is returning, with Molly Shannon (“Saturday Night Live”) and comedian Roland ‘Lil Duval’ Powell also onboard.
The site reports that “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.”
Sheen and Lohan’s characters play the “world’s hottest new couple” who don’t make it past the pre-credits opening sequence.
Craig Bierko, who was in the previous installments, was originally onboard to play the “oversexed director”, but is now out. It’s been suggested that Rex is now playing the part.
