Spoof movies have never been particularly well regarded. When they’re good, like the original 1980 “Airplane,” they deftly satirize many tropes of your favorite films while also creating laughs derived from their own comedic situations. When they’re bad, they’re most likely directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the title ends with the word “Movie,” and they spend most their time recreating your favorite scenes from films in an exacting manner infused with Carmen Electra and potty humor. The “Scary Movie” films have always fallen somewhere between the highs and lows of that spectrum, with the franchise's early releases hitting at a time when the horror market was ripe with films containing casts that consisted mostly of The WB alumni, with titles like “Scream” and “I Know What You Did Last Summer” reaching the point of franchise exhaustion. There was plenty of material to work with, and, admittedly, the brothers Damon and Marlon Wayans actually gave audiences a raunchy good time at the movies with the first installment in 2000.

If the "Scary Movie" franchise will be remembered for anything, it won't be for the jokes, but it will be for helping launch Anna Faris' career, the plucky actress who allowed herself to be glued to ceiling with semen all in the name of comedy. For whatever reason, these cheap, terribly unfunny movies, make a mint at the box office "Scary Movie 4" bringing in more than $170 million worldwide. It boggles the mind. So no surprise a new movie is now on the way and three people have been hired to create script. Three. We guess this kind of stupidity requires a team.
