At the risk of spoiling a scene in an upcoming movie — which probably won’t ruin it because the scene is expected to take place during the opening sequence — Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan will reportedly become what the studio producing “Scary Movie 5” calls “the world’s hottest new couple,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
But the couple’s happy life together is destined to be short-lived, with one or both of the stars suffering a horrible fate early in the movie.
The cameo is in keeping with a “Scary Movie” tradition that has sent celebrities including Pamela Anderson, Shaquille O’Neal and Dr. Phil to over-the-top deaths, the report notes.
The movie, from Dimension Films, will start shooting in September with a target release date of April 19, 2013. Ashley Tisdale and Erica Ash star, with Malcolm Lee directing and David Zucker co-writing and producing. Terry Crews has also joined the cast.
THR notes: “Sheen is coming off a role as president of the United States in Robert Rodriguez’ ‘Machete’ sequel, while Lohan next stars as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime telefilm ‘Liz & Dick’ and is shooting the Los Angeles-based independent film ‘The Canyons,’ written by Bret Easton Ellis.
