Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan to play lovers

Sheen and the 26 year old, who have each struggled to revamp their images following very public meltdowns in the past 18 months, will portray “the world’s hottest new couple” in Scary Movie 5.

But their romance will not last long – one or both of the stars will be killed off in the opening sequence, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Disney star Ashley Tisdale, action man Terry Crews, and actress/singer Erica Ash have also signed up for the project, which is scheduled to begin filming next month (Sep12) in anticipation of an early 2013 release.

The former Two and a Half Men star is not new to the film franchise – he appeared in Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4.
