When you make a spoof film, you want to make fun of stuff that is recent because it’s fresh on people’s mind and you can do more comedically. If you wait, the comedians of the world will have already descended and stripped that bone dry.
But that’s what the creators of Scary Movie 5 are going to do. They’re going to pick the already dry bone. The Film Stage has the plot outline:
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-20′s mother of two and her late-20′s 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-30′s Diva veteran dancer with the company, Heather Daltry, gets cut from the production and goes berserk.
Is there no spoof worthy film that came out in 2011 or 2012? The Hunger Games maybe? Or how about Paranormal Activity?
To make matters worse, Anna Faris says she’s not going to be involved. She was pretty much the only reason to see Scary Movie 3 and 4, unless you’re a huge fan of Carmen Electra bumbling around. [The Film Stage via The Playlist]
