The Wayans brothers are a prominent name in the world of comedy and entertainment. Shawn and Marlon Wayans have been known for their hilarious performances on the big and small screens. However, their relationship with the Scary Movie franchise has been a topic of discussion among fans.
Scary Movie was a horror-comedy film that was released in 2000. The movie was a parody of popular horror films at the time, such as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. The movie was directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans, who is also the oldest of the Wayans brothers.
The movie was a huge success, grossing over $278 million worldwide. The film’s success led to four sequels, all of which were produced by the Wayans brothers. However, after Scary Movie 2, there seemed to be some tension between the studio and the Wayans brothers.
It was reported that the studio wanted to take control of the franchise and push out the Wayans brothers. The studio wanted to continue making Scary Movie sequels without involving them in any capacity. This caused a rift between both parties, and eventually, the Wayans brothers decided to part ways with the franchise.
The studio went ahead to produce Scary Movie 3 without any involvement from the Wayans brothers. However, this movie didn’t perform as well as its predecessors at the box office or with critics.
The Wayans brothers went on to create their own horror-comedy franchise called “Haunted House.” The franchise comprises two movies that were released in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
In conclusion, it’s evident that there were some issues between the studio and the Wayans brothers regarding creative control over Scary Movie. While it’s unfortunate that they couldn’t continue working together on one of their biggest projects, it’s commendable that they took matters into their own hands and created something equally successful in “Haunted House.”
