Blackfilm.com has learned that boxing legend Mike Tyson is among a list of notables who will make cameo appearances in ‘Scary Movie 5,’ along with The Hills star Audrina Patridge and Kendra Wilkinson, star of the E! reality television series ‘Kendra,’ a spinoff of The Girls Next Door.
The fighter was spotted on set in Atlanta, Georgia Thursday, with co-star Heather Locklear.
The trio join a cast that includes Ashley Tisdale, Erica Ash, Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Simon Rex, Molly Shannon, Terry Crews, Marisa Saks, Heather Locklear, Jasmine Guy, Angie Stone, Kate Walsh, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola and Sherée Whitfield.
Tisdale recently tweeted, “Lots of cameos shooting today on #scarymovie5. Super excited!!!! #thisjobisawesome”
Directed by Malcolm Lee, this is the fifth installment of a very successful franchise. Lampooning the greatest in horror and genre fare, the first four films have grossed over $800 million worldwide.
The plot involves Three dancers — one veteran performer and two upstarts who are also best friends — vie for the lead in a new production from a snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed director.
Snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed French dance company director Pierre is putting on a new production. Jody (played by Ashley Tisdale), a Caucasian late-20s mother of two and her late-20s African American friend Kendra (played by Erica Ash) 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-30s Diva veteran dancer with the company, Heather Daltry (played by Molly Shannon), gets cut from the production and goes berserk.
Tyson’s recent acting experience includes roles in ‘The Hangover’ and its sequel ‘The Hangover II,’ while Patridge was last seen in 2009’s ‘Sorority Row.’
Dimension Films will release ‘Scary Movie 5’ on April 19, 2013.
