Lindsay Lohan just landed her next starring role in a movie. An actual movie this time. Now before you think this is a good thing for Lohan’s career, know this: her starring role is alongside Charlie Sheen in the next Scary Movie – if you haven’t been keeping up, it’s No. 5.
This is just what the world needs – two of America’s biggest celebrity train-wrecks in a spoof movie together. This must mean they’re the joke of the movie right? Or are we being punk’d? This just sounds too good to be true.
E! Online says that Sheen will reprise his role as Tom Logan even though he was killed off in Scary Movie 4. Then again, this is the Scary Movie universe and things don’t ever make sense. As for Lindsay, no word on who she’ll be playing yet, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she ended up playing her good ole self. What we’re having a hard time figuring out is if this is a step up or down from Liz & Dick.
Malcolm Lee is directing, and just in case you were wondering, Anna Faris won’t be in the fifth installment. The movie is set for a January 11 release date, but that’s likely to change since they’re barely casting the thing.
We obviously don’t need another Scary Movie. Spoof movies in general are a bit silly, and not in the “they’re so funny” sort of way. We’re not really interested to see what this next venture will bring. Sure, Sheen is a funny man (when he wants to be), but we’ve seen Lohan on SNL and Glee, and if that’s what she’s bringing to this, we say “Thanks, but no thanks.”
Alright dear readers, next we’ll be reporting how Lindsay Lohan couldn’t get to the set of Scary Movie 5 because her car breaks didn’t work. Stay tuned.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to Scary Movie 5?
