First Look At Marlon Wayans, Essence Atkins, Cedric The Entertainer In Found-Footage Spoof ‘A Haunted House’

First Look At Marlon Wayans, Essence Atkins, Cedric The Entertainer In Found-Footage Spoof 'A Haunted House'

UNFORTUNATELY, THE STUDIO REQUESTED THAT WE PULL ALL 11 PHOTOS, AND WE OBLIGED. BUT THEY’LL BE BACK UP AGAIN SOON! 

The film’s first trailer is expected to debut this week, but in the meantime, as we wait for that, here’s your very first look (via 11 new photos) at Marlon Wayans’ found-footage spoof A Haunted House.

Directed by Mike Tiddes from a script penned by Wayans and Rick Alvarezthe official synopsis reads:

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.

 
IM Global president of international sales Jonathan Deckter and the team expect a torrent of interest on a roster that includes Gold Circle’s supernatural thriller The Possession Of Michael King from first-time director David Jung and the thriller Chained from the producers of the Saw franchise starring Ryan Phillipe.
 
Marlon Wayans co-directed Untitled Found Footage Comedy with Mike Tiddes and the R-rated spoof is expected to find a US home within days.

Open Road Films will release the movie (which co-stars Essence Atkins and Cedric The Entertainer) in the USA, starting on January 112013.

A Haunted House will mark Marlon Wayans’ first return to the big screen, since he played Ripcord in 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

With an R-rating, expect lots of crude humor, just the way we like it!

As noted previously, the Wayans have certainly done well with these spoofs, from Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, to the Scary Movie franchise, to, most recently, Dance Flick, which both Wayans and Atkins worked on.

They weren’t all box office hits, but overall, they’ve done fairly well; some even cracking the $100 million block-buster mark.

And I guess it was only a matter of time before those found-footage flicks were finally parodied, since we’ve seen so many of them, that they are becoming to become parodies of themselves.

Looking forward to seeing what the first trailer looks like when it debuts later this week.
