Lindsay Lohan In Talks For 'Scary Movie 5'
The “Scary Movie” franchise is getting even scarier by angling to add accident-prone star Lindsay Lohan to the mix. Pictures in the series have previously featured appearances by pop-culture types Carmen Electra, Lil Jon, Pamela Anderson, Jenny McCarthy, Charlie Sheen and Shannon Elizabeth. Sources say Lohan met with Bob Weinstein about possibly joining the cast of “Scary Movie 5,” opposite “High School Musical” star Ashley Tisdale, last week. David Zucker, who wrote the classic, off-the-wall comedies “Airplane!” and “Top Secret,” is co-writing the latest installment of the hit comedy franchise that spoofs horror films and is stocked with pop- culture gags. The movie’s scheduled for release next April 19. Anna Faris starred in the first four “Scary” releases, the most recent of which made $90.7 million in 2006. Lohan has been making a comeback of sorts after being let off formal probation in March, starring in Lifetime’s “Liz & Dick” and “American Psycho” author Bret Easton Ellis’ “The Canyons.” But she hasn’t totally left off-camera drama behind. She recently crashed an $80,000 sports car and was treated by paramedics for that dreaded celebrity disease, exhaustion. A Dimension rep said Lohan is not confirmed to be in the film.Source: New York Post
