Marlon Wayan’s faux found footage feature formerly known as ‘Smart Ass’ has evolved into the beautifully simplistic ‘A Haunted House’. And Open Road Films, along with Endgame Entertainment, have just scored the US distribution rights are planning to unleash it into North American theatres on 11 January 2013. Wayans stars in the project directed by Michael Tiddes and is joined by Essence Atkins (‘Dance Flick’), Cedric the Entertainer, David Koechner (‘Final Destination 5’), Nick Swardson, Dave Sheridan (‘Scary Movie’), Liana Mendoza and the sexy Jamie Noel (‘Bikini Spring Break’). Co-executive producer Stuart Ford has stated that “Marlon and the gang have made a riotously funny film and I’m really confident that Open Road is going to blow this out in a big way.” Of course as we all know the parody genre is becoming increasingly difficult to pull off but at least ‘A Haunted House’ for now appears to be trying something a little different. Check out the plot info below.
“In an outrageous send up of the “Paranormal Activity” movies, The Devil Inside and other “found footage” movies, A Haunted House features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship… or, more importantly, his sex life.”
