Ashley Tisdale pegged to headline Scary Movie 5!

Unneeded or not, it seems Dimension is moving forward with SCARY MOVIE 5, using it as a platform to lampoon the award winning BLACK SWAN. Question...is Ashley Tisdale on par with Natalie Portman? or Anna Faris for that matter?

I don't think so, but that isn't stopping the studio from putting the franchise in the hands of Tisdale (pictured), who looks to parlay her "High School Musical" fame into something more. Think it'll work?

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.

Given the setup, it seems perfect for Tisdale's background, so maybe it is a good fit. Tisdale joins director Malcolm Lee who will be teaming up and working side by side with legendary comedy director David Zucker (AIRPLANE, THE NAKED GUN franchises). Zucker wrote and directed SCARY MOVIE 3 and 4 and is also co-writing and producing SCARY MOVIE 5.
