As part of its plan to rejuvenate old franchises, Dimension Films has apparently hired screenwriters to work on Scary Movie 5, the wholly necessary fifth entry in the Scary Movie franchise. Bloody Disgusting reports that the studio has set The Comebacks writers John Aboud and Michael Colton, as well as screenwriter Stephen Leff to pen the screenplay. The report also states that the studio is keen on bringing back some of the series’ original cast members. BD says offers have been sent out to Anthony Anderson (Scary Movie 3 and 4), Regina Hall (Scary Movie 1-4) and Kevin Hart (Scary Movie 3 and 4), but the actors are yet to be officially involved.
There’s currently no director attached, but the lack of any vestige of an actual movie hasn’t kept the nonexistent film from being set for an April 20, 2012 release date.
