'Scary Movie 5' May Be a Reboot
"Scary Movie 5" is in the very early stages of works and words are, it may end up as a remake to the popular spoof series. Cinema Blend brought up the story to the surface, claiming insiders have suggested that the Weinstein Company is rebooting "Scary Movie".
If the studio indeed plans to start all over again with the series, it could mean the fifth film would feature all new characters and there will be no more of Anna Faris. Back in September, Faris has revealed to Fangoria she has no clue on the fifth movie, saying "Everyone wants to know if there will be a fifth SCARY MOVIE and I really have no answer."
Cinema Blend further pointed out that "Scary Movie 5" won't be happening anytime soon. The site noted Weinstein doesn't plan to begin work on it until "Scream 4" is released in theaters across the U.S. in 2010.
The original "Scary Movie" was directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans. Released in 2000, it parodies the horror, slasher, and mystery genres such as "The Sixth Sense", "Scream" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer". It has spawned three sequels with the last one "Scary Movie 4" being released in 2006. Overall, the series has collected over $817 million at the box-office worldwide.
