Though there may be no point to 2013's 'Scary Movie 5,' it's hard to argue they aren't going for bang with the budget bucks as they've just added troubled stars Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan to the film.

The fourth ‘Scary Movie’ hit theaters in April 2006, and topped out at $90.7M at the domestic box office. It didn’t set the world on fire, but it earned enough to warrant ‘Scary Movie 5,’ which tentatively is set to open on Jan. 11, 2013. Just don’t look for series staple Anna Faris, who plans to pass on the franchise that launched her comedic career.
The picture above from 'Scary Movie 4' should tell you everything you need to know about the 'Scary Movie' franchise at this point. By the end there weren't enough horror movies to parody, so they started taking on any major movies (including 'Brokeback Mountain'), and were basically doing what Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer did with their spin-off parodies (which started with 'Date Movie' and'Epic Movie'). The franchise and parody films in general wore out their welcome, so perhaps it'll be a breath of fresh air when 'Scary Movie 5' hits theaters January 11, 2013.
