After four Scary Movies, it seems like Anna Faris has been replaced by another funny blonde actress. Ashley Tisdale, best known for Disney’s High School Musical series, has been tapped to star in the latest edition of the franchise, Scary Movie 5, which will be directed Malcolm Lee and co-written and produced by David Zucker. Zucker wrote and directed the last two installments, but is splitting duties with Lee this time around.
The film, which starts shooting this summer, will reportedly spoof films such as Black Swan, Paranormal Activity, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and 127 Hours. Read more after the jump. Read More »

We just showed you some images from Cogan’s Trade, Andrew Dominik‘s long-awaited follow-up to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Now we’ve got a release date for the film, which will hit theaters on September 21. Given the movie’s pedigree, that suggests the film will premiere either at the Toronto or Venice Film Festival before landing in US theaters.
Cogan’s Trade features Brad Pitt as the title character, a mob enforcer who is on the trail of a couple junkies (Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn) who robbed a mob-backed card game. Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini, and Sam Shepard are all in the cast as well. Read More »
We bitch and complain that Hollywood keeps making unneeded remakes and sequels but, I think we can all agree, Scary Movie 5 is a home run. Those last three films were just so clever and funny and didn’t at all begin a trend of some of the worst movies in recently memory like Epic Movie and Superhero Movie. Yup, Scary Movie 5 is the one we’re all going to get behind and Dimension has tapped writers Stephen Leff, John Aboud and Michael Colton (the two latter of which helped write The Comebacks) to bring back the funny early next year. Read which stars they’re hoping to bring back and more after the break. Read More »
If you saw the above image and thought John Lasseter and Steven Spielberg were going to co-direct Scream 5, sorry to get your hopes up.

Sequel Bits won’t be a daily occurrence (like the week old Superhero Bits) but sometimes, when there’s some interesting sequel news that might not deserve its own article, it’s easiest just to round it up. So, after the jump read about:
- How John Lasseter directed scenes from Cars 2 on an iPad
- The Weinstein Company setting release dates for Scary Movie 5 and Halloween 3D
- Tyrese Gibson‘s hilarious notion Steven Spielberg would direct a Transformers 4
