Sheen and Lohan will play what is being described by the studio as “the world’s hottest new couple” and with one or both being killed in the movie's opening sequence.
For those keeping track, each and every Scary Movie to date has thrust a celebrity or two into its opening just to kill them in an over-the-top way. Sheen and Lohan will follow Pamela Anderson, Shaquille O'Neal, Dr. Phil and others into the pantheon of the dead.
Ashley Tisdale and Erica Ash are starring in the fifth installment, along with newly signed Terry Crews (The Expendables 2). Scary Movie 5 is directed by Malcolm Lee and co-written and produced by comedy legend David Zucker. Zucker is best known for his work on the Airplane! and Naked Gun movies, and he also wrote and directed Scary Movie 3 and 4, both of which Sheen appeared in.
The movie is due to begin shooting September with an eye toward an April 19 release.
