‘Scary Movie’ Reboot Set at Paramount With Sonic the Hedgehog Producer

“Scary Movie,” the early comedy series that lampooned horror films like “Scream” and “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” is being rebooted.

Paramount Pictures has announced its partnership with “Fast and Furious” megaproducer Neal H. Moritz to resurrect the dormant franchise. “Horror film” enters production in fall 2024 and is expected to hit theaters in 2025. The series spawned five previous films before running out of gas with the 2013 installment. But horror continues to be a major force at the box office, with films like “Five Nights at Freddy’s,” “Smile” and “M3GAN” drawing large crowds. So there’s a lot of new material for the “Scary Movie” team to parody.

“Scary Movie” is also being made as part of Paramount’s first partnership with Miramax, the studio behind the film franchise. Miramax will fully finance the production, with Paramount handling distribution. The independent label is a joint venture between Paramount and BeIN. Miramax recently announced that it has a new CEO in former MGM chief Jonathan Glickman.

Currently, Moritz is executive producer of “Knuckles,” a six-episode original event series set after the events of “Sonic the Hedgehog 2.” The series debuts April 26 exclusively on Paramount+ in the United States. Moritz is also producing “Sonic the Hedgehog 3,” which is scheduled for release on December 20, 2024, after serving as a producer on the other two “Sonic” films. Additionally, Moritz is developing several feature film projects at Paramount, including a reboot of “Face/Off.”
