Scary Movie 5 / Malcolm Lee

I honestly thought they were done with this franchise, but it appears that the Scary Movie series is still going strong. Entertainment Weekly reports that director Malcolm Lee, Spike Lee's cousin, is going to be behind the camera for the next installment of the long-running spoof franchise. Malcolm has directed a few films before, notably Undercover Brother, Roll Bounce, and his most recent effort, 2008's Soul Men. Lee will write and produce Scary Movie 5 alongside series stalwart David Zucker, and production is slated to being this summer. The sequel already has a January 11th, 2013 release date carved into the calendar.

Looks like they're moving quickly on this one, trying to remain in the public consciousness after the most recent Scream film hit theaters last year. I'd like to think that society has moved past considering these movies comedies, though they were always better than the uninspired spin-offs Superhero Movie, Epic Movie, and Dance Movie. I feel like this series has run its course, but as long as they keep making money, I guess we can continue to expect seeing these things hit theaters. Casting is underway, and I'm sure we'll see a lot of familiar faces in the cast, alongside whatever celebrity is in the zeitgeist now. Thoughts?

    I would love another scary movie, only if the wayne bros are in it! The wayne bros made it funny, first two made me laugh, last two sucked balls. WAYNE BROS, COME BACK
    I feel like it will be better than 2 and 4, slightly better than 3, but not at all close to the first.
