SCARY MOVIE 3 PLOT DETAILS
Entertainment Weekly spoke to Scary Movie 3 director David Zucker who revealed the film's plot (spoilers ahead!)...
The hapless Cindy (Anna Faris) is now working as a TV anchorwoman and is assigned to cover the discovery of a crop circle on Charlie Sheen's farm. 'Charlie is basically the Mel Gibson character from 'Signs,'' says Zucker. Soon, Cindy's best friend Brenda gets killed by a cursed videotape (?a ''The Ring''). As Cindy investigates, she runs into, yes, Morpheus (Eddie Griffin, not Laurence Fishburne), who tells her that she's The One. Eventually, the president (Leslie Nielsen!), his Secret Service agent (Ja Rule), and his top assistant (D.L. Hughley) get involved, as the cast combats an 'Independence Day'-style alien invasion. 'We had to combine the plots of four or five movies', says Zucker. 'But it's more or less kind of cohesive.'
Zucker also says that The Matrix Reloaded spoof wasn't added until after they saw the movie in May.
After Zucker and his crew saw 'The Matrix Reloaded' in May, they were so inspired that they shut down production for two weeks to incorporate an elaborate parody of the Wachowski brothers' epic. 'We got Eddie Griffin, and we restructured and rewrote a lot of scenes', says Zucker. 'Scenes that were 'Ring' or 'Signs' parodies were shifted to 'The Matrix.'' Meanwhile, the movie also incorporates smaller-scale potshots at 'The Hulk' and 'A Beautiful Mind', among other targets.
