Marlon Wayans’ A Haunted House looks far funnier, and more interesting than what I see in this trailer.
This isn’t exactly a project we would’ve expected Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man, Roll Bounce, Undercover Brother) to direct next, if at all, but I guess work is work. A paycheck is a paycheck.
His upcoming Scary Movie 5 will see several real-life *troubled* celebs make fun of themselves (like Katt Williams, Lindsay Lohan, Mike Tyson, Heather Locklear and Charlie Sheen) in a continuation of the popular spoof franchise.
Malcolm Lee directed Scary Movie 5 from a script penned by David Zucker, who wrote and directed the last 2 installments of the franchise.
Zucker and Lee are producers for Dimension Films.
This will be Lee’s first film since 2008, and as I say in the title of the post, this short teaser goes beyond spoofing scary movies; there are nods to Inception, Madea, Black Swan, and other titles I can’t think of at the moment. Unfortunately, it all looks rather trite, and like yesterday’s news. I don’t know who’ll be rushing out to see this. Let’s hope they put the franchise to bed after this; although I’m sure it has its audience.
