Lindsay Lohan for Scary Movie 5

August 6th, 2012

Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen have joined the cast of 'Scary Movie 5'.

The 'Mean Girls' actress is set to make her first appearance in the spoof horror franchise while Charlie will return for the third time, despite his character Tom Logan being killed off in 'Scary Movie 4'.

Malcolm Lee will direct the movie from a script co-written by David Zucker who wrote and helmed the third and fourth films.

The movie is set to be a complete reboot of the franchise, which originally starred Anna Faris and has grossed over $800 million worldwide.

Ashley Tisdale has previously signed up for the film which will involve the dance world.

A synopsis of the script revealed: ''The story in 'Scary Movie 5' involves the dance world, with a snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed French director of a dance company named Pierre putting on a huge production. Jody, a Caucasian late-20s mother of two and her late-20s African American friend Kendra are both vying for the lead in the production. Jody's extremely controlling former dancer mother is determined that Jody will have the brilliant career that eluded her. The highly skilled mid-30s Diva veteran dancer with the company, Heather Daltry, gets cut from the production and goes berserk.''

'Scary Movie 5' is slated for an April 2013 release.
