Will There Ever Be Scary Movie 6?

Scary Movie is a comedy horror film series that has managed to entertain audiences for over two decades now. The franchise has produced five movies so far, with the latest one being released in 2013.

Fans of the series have been eagerly waiting for news about a possible sixth installment. So, will there ever be Scary Movie 6? Let’s find out.

The History of Scary Movie

Scary Movie first hit the theaters in 2000 and was an instant hit. The movie was directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans and starred Marlon and Shawn Wayans, Anna Faris, and Carmen Electra, among others. The film was a parody of popular horror movies like Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and The Blair Witch Project.

The movie’s success led to four sequels – Scary Movie 2 (2001), Scary Movie 3 (2003), Scary Movie 4 (2006), and Scary Movie 5 (2013). While each installment had its share of laughs, the later movies failed to capture the same magic as the first one.

Why Hasn’t There Been a Sixth Installment Yet?

One of the reasons why there hasn’t been a sixth installment yet is that the franchise has changed hands multiple times. After directing Scary Movie and Scary Movie 2, Keenen Ivory Wayans left the project to pursue other opportunities. David Zucker then took over as director for Scary Movie 3 and continued on until Scary Movie 5.

Another reason for the delay in production could be due to declining box office numbers. While all five films were profitable at the box office, their success dwindled with each new release.

Will There Ever Be a Scary Movie 6?

As of now, there is no official word on whether there will be a sixth installment of Scary Movie. However, there have been rumors that the franchise may be rebooted with a fresh new cast and storyline.

It’s also worth noting that the horror genre has evolved significantly since the release of Scary Movie in 2000. With the rise of movies like Get Out and A Quiet Place, we could see a new take on horror-comedy if a sixth movie were to be made.


In conclusion, while there is no concrete news about Scary Movie 6, it’s safe to say that fans of the franchise are eagerly waiting for any updates. The series has had its ups and downs over the years, but one thing is for sure – it has left an indelible mark on the horror-comedy genre. Only time will tell if we’ll get to see another Scary Movie in theaters anytime soon.
