Mike Tyson has already left his mark on Todd Phillips' Hangover franchise, and will be doing it once again when The Hangover Part III arrives in theaters on May 24, 2013, but now it's being reported that he is lending his image - and notable face tattoo - on another franchise with an appearance in Scary Movie 5. It is now being reported that Tyson, Audrina Patridge and Kendra Wilkinson will all have titles in the upcoming horror spoof.
The film is currently in production and Black Film has gotten word that the former boxer was seen on set recently along with Heather Locklear. Taking over as the lead in the franchise for Anna Faris will be High School Musical's Ashley Tisdale and it was previously reported that Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Terry Crews, Simon Rex, Molly Shannon, Marisa Saks, and Erica Ash. The site doesn't mention what roles the three new actors will be playing, but notes that Tisdale recently Tweeted, "Lots of cameos shooting today on #scarymovie5. Super excited!!!! #thisjobisawesome.” Malcolm Lee, who last directed the 2008 comedy Soul Men, is directing the movie.
A parody of Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan among other titles, the central plot follows a trio of dancers as they compete for the lead role in a new production that is being headed up by a "snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed French dance company director" (via the official synopsis). The script was written by Pat Proft and David Zucker, who also had hands in Scary Movie 3 and 4 as writer and director, respectively. Scary Movie 5 will be in theaters on April 19, 2013 and you can see the first two stills from the movie in our Blend Film Database.
