Open Road Films and Endgame Entertainment announced last week that it has acquired all US distribution rights to Haunted House – an upcoming horror spoof from Marlon Wayans, star of legendary spoofs like Scary Movie, Scary Movie 2, and Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood. According to the companies, Wayans will star alongside Cedric the Entertainer, while co-writing the script with Rick Alvarez, who served as co-executive producer on Scary Movie 2.
Open Road outlines the plot as follows:
In an outrageous send up of the Paranormal Activity movies, The Devil Inside and other “found footage” movies, A Haunted House features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship… or, more importantly, his sex life.
A Haunted House is scheduled to hit theaters on January 11th, 2013.
