Production began earlier today in Atlanta, Georgia on Scary Movie 5, The Weinstein Company's latest installment in their spoof comedy franchise. The studio has brought back some alumnus from the series, with Simon Rex (Scary Movie 3) and Molly Shannon (Scary Movie 4) joining the cast. It isn't known if they are reprising their previous roles, or taking on new characters.
This time around, it seems they are poking fun at dance movies with the sequel. The story centers around three dancers, one an accomplished pro and the other two newcomers and best friends, all auditioning for a role in the hottest new production from, "a snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed director."
We reported in August that Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan signed on to star. Today, we have word that they will play Hollywood's hottest couple, who are killed off during the movie's opening sequence. Ashley Tisdale, Terry Crews, Marisa Saks, and Erica Ash also star. Malcolm D. Lee is directing from a screenplay by David Zucker.
