SCARY MOVIE 3
The Hollywood Reporter and today's Variety scoop that Dimension Films will make Scary Movie 3 without the Wayans brothers, who recently flew the coop to make a sci-fi parody at Sony-based Revolution Studios.
According to THR, David Zucker (Airplane!, Naked Gun) will helm the new film, Scary Movie 3: Episode I ? Lord of the Brooms, a title which manages to spoof Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter all in one. Written by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer (co-writers of the original Scary Movie), the film follows 'an orphan who embarks on a magical quest to rid the universe of evil.'
The Wayans hooked up with Revolution after they were unable to agree on a new deal with Dimension. And according to insiders, Dimension studio chief Bob Weinstein is taking issue with the Wayans' abrupt defection. He's vowing to get his flick out faster, and the studio is reportedly 'looking into the legal impact, if any, of their actions on our rights.' The Wayans' new flick will spoof sci-fi flicks like Alien.
The trades report that Anna Faris will be back as Cindy Campbell, but there's no word on any of the other Scary actors. Scary Movie 3 is expected to start production in February/March.
