Its not every film star that has a white house connection on their resume along side such fare as High School Musical. Today Dimension Films has announced that High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale has been cast to play the lead in the upcoming Scary Movie 5 movie. A bit of an odd move but then demographics are changing and I am unfortunately getting older. Ashley Tisdale is an actress, song writer and producer and at the age of 12 she sang at the White House. Pretty impressive.
SCARY MOVIE 5 production will begin this summer. The Scary Movie film franchise has made over $800million which is why it should come as no surprise to anyone that the studio is making a 5th. The question is will you watch it?
Tisdale quickly became one of the breakout stars of the Emmy Award-winning “High School Musical” franchise, in which she played Sharpay Evans. The film shattered cable records and Disney released the third installment of the “High School Musical” franchise as a feature film. HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3: SENIOR YEAR, set a box office record as the highest grossing opening weekend total for a musical. Tisdale reprised her role in the Disney Channel original film “Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure” and the telefilm was the #1 watched show on cable for the night. “Miss Advised,” the first show she produced through her Blondie Girl Productions shingle, will premiere on Bravo on June 18th. Her other credits include voicing Candace in “Phineas and Ferb,” the CW drama “Hellcats” and the film ALIENS IN THE ATTIC.
Tisdale joins director Malcolm Lee who will be teaming up and working side by side with legendary comedy director David Zucker (AIRPLANE, THE NAKED GUN franchises). Zucker wrote and directed SCARY MOVIE 3 and 4 and is also co-writing and producing SCARY MOVIE 5.
