Lindsay Lohan to join Charlie Sheen in Scary Movie 5
It's still up in the air as to whether the news of SCARY MOVIE 5's existence will end up being scarier than the movie itself - still, those curious enough to see it can now look forward to Lindsay Lohan joining the fray for the first time and Charlie Sheen returning for a third go (after SCARY MOVIE 3 and 4).
Charlie Sheen's involvement was discussed all the way back in September, so today's news is more confirmation on that front than anything else. The curious bit is that he was actually killed off in the fourth installment of the franchise, but SCARY MOVIE 5 "is being touted as a complete reboot" so that whole "death" thing doesn't matter one bit and you'll be seeing plenty more Sheen (and Lohan) on screen when the release date of January 11th, 2013 arrives.
Plot recap: SCARY MOVIE 5 will involve the dance world, with a snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed French director of a dance company named Pierre putting on a huge production. Jody, a Caucasian late-20's mother of two and her late-20's African American friend Kendra 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-30's Diva veteran dancer with the company, Heather Daltry, gets cut from the production and goes berserk.
|Extra Tidbit:||The SCARY MOVIE franchise has made over $800 million worldwide. Now that's scary.|
