I love me some Anna Faris. She’s bar none the best thing about the “Scary Movie” franchise. The series has always been incredibly hit and miss with me, but it’s always been Faris that’s kept it chugging along with her straight man (straight woman?) character Cindy Campbell. The woman is just down for everything the Wayans can throw at her, and I think that’s one of the reasons why the series even works at all, even when it isn’t working, which is pretty often.
So now we might get a “Scary Movie” movie sans Faris? That would totally suck. According to Faris herself, though, she’s not in the fifth movie. She tells Comingsoon:
No, I don’t think I’m going to do it,. I don’t think I’m part of that. I don’t know exactly what’s happening with it, but I hear it’s sort of in the works and stuff.
Okay, there is some hedging of bets there. Sounds like she hasn’t been approached to reprise Cindy Campbell yet, not that she knows she’s not going to be doing it. A sort of, “I hear they’re doing it, but no one has talked to me about it yet” sort of thing.
It just wouldn’t be a “Scary Movie” without Faris, just like there wouldn’t be a “Scary Movie” without dumb ass predictable pot jokes and tired old “white people do this, black people do that” jokes.
