SMITH JOINS SM3
Dimension Films has signed Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy) to executive produce and co-write its Scary Movie 3. He joins David Zucker (Airplane!, The Naked Gun), who has agreed to direct.
The new addition steps up the rivalry between Dimension and Revolution Studios, where Scary Movie originators Keenen Ivory, Shawn and Marlon Wayans are developing their own spoof project based on the sci-fi-fantasy genre.
Both films are expected to be out next year, but Dimension topper Bob Weinstein has vowed to be first to market with an early fall release. Scary Movie 3 is set to begin lensing in February.
For writing duties, Smith joins scribes Pat Proft, Brian Lynch and Craig Mazin, who signed on to write the script in November.
