Scary Movie 5: Lindsay Lohan & Charlie Sheen Will Die; Terry Crews Joins Cast

Published 3 years ago by , Updated July 17th, 2013 at 11:17 am,

Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan will be killed. Not for real, of course(?): the pair of tabloid-headlining celebrities will meet their demise onscreen in Scary Movie 5, the upcoming new chapter in the long-running comedy series, which is being directed by franchise newcomer Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man, Undercover Brother).

In other Scary Movie 5 news: the latest addition to the cast will be Expendables 2 star Terry Crews, who will play a yet-unspecified role.

The Scary Movie franchise started as a spoof of the Scream horror films, which always opened with sequences of celebrities in cameo roles being slaughtered by the infamous Ghost Face killer. Scary Movie has continued that proud(?) tradition, with notable deaths in prior installments being hilariously suffered by the likes of Carmen Electra, Jenny McCarthy, Pam Anderson, Shaq and Dr. Phil.

Sheen played the protagonist in Scary Movie 3, and had a bit role (not to mention a death scene) in the fourth film. As THR reports, the controversial actor will not be returning as his deceased character, Tom Logan, but will rather team with Lohan to play “the world’s hottest new couple,” in the opening sequence – which will presumably end with one or both their deaths.

The combined presence of Sheen and Lohan onscreen is surely enough to grab a lot of attention (such as… this article); the further revelation that they’ll be playing up their own famous personas will only be a more attractive proposition – while word that both could be horribly slaughtered will only seal the deal, no matter if you hate or love them. I say all that to say: this is a smart play for the filmmakers behind Scary Movie 5.

Crews in ‘The Expendables 2′

Black Film  managed to grab the exclusive that actor Terry Crews – who can currently be seen on HBO’s The Newsroom and will be shooting up the box office in The Expendables 2 this week – will be coming onboard. Said Crews:

I will also be in Scary Movie 5. That’s being directed by my man Malcolm Lee, who I love from The Best Man.

As stated, no word yet on who the actor will play, but with a long comedy track record that includes White Chicks, Idiocracy, Balls of Fury, Friday After Next, Malibu’s Most Wanted, and many other entries, Crews should do fine bringing the funny.

Scary Movie 5 is being written by Naked Gun and Airplane! legend David Zucker – who also happened to direct Scary Movie 3 & 4 - with help from Pat Proft, who wrote the scripts for parts 3 &4 that Zucker directed from. While franchise star Anna Faris won’t be back, fresh faces like Ashley Tisdale and Erica Ash will be picking up the reigns.

Scary Movie 5 will be in theaters on April 19, 2013.

  1. Scary Move = Great.
    Scary Movie 2 = Great.
    Scary Movie 3 = Meh, not great.
    Scary Movie 4 = RUBBISH!!

    • …So, Scary Movie 5 will be Rubbish!

    • Agreed!

  2. Scary Movie 4 was at least better than 3. Still didn’t have to be made. Just like 5.

  3. I think you repeated yourself. In other Scary Movie 5 news, Terry Crews will be joining the cast. In other SM5 news, Terry Crews will be joining the cast. I’m surprised whoever published this article didn’t catch that. Also, I thought there was no word on who Charlie Sheen or Lindsay Lohan were playing? Where did you get this info?

    • The second time they gave details

      they have a lot of sources

  4. scary movie 1 = horrible
    scary movie 2 = horrible (but at least it had david cross, chris elliot and tim curry)
    scary movie 3 = brilliant (a return to form for the great david zucker)
    scary movie 4 = good (great performance by craig bierko)

    this franchise sucked until they ditched the wayans bros. and david “airplane/naked gun” zucker took over. sheen, bierko, anthony anderson, kevin hart and of course faris were great in 3 & 4. no anna faris doesn’t bode well, but it should still be pretty good. that brokeback mountain scene with hart and anderson is classic.

  5. This series hasnt been very good since the Wayans stepped away.

  6. I know these movies aren’t to be taken seriously (they are spoof/parody flicks after all), but isn’t “Lindsay Lohan & Charlie Sheen Will Die” kind of a spoiler?

    • It’ll have a twist and it will actually be Chuck Lorre being creamed by a subway train instead of Charlie.

  7. Lohan and Sheen? Well, that actually does sound kinda scary. Probably more so for the director though. Will draw an audience though. Train wrecks always do.

  8. Screenrant has typically been very good about avoiding outright spoilers in their news headlines, which is a big part of why I rely on it for movie news. I don’t know where this aberration comes from.

  9. There is really no point in making this movie if anna farris is not going to be in it…..
