Scary Movie Cast Celebrates 20th Anniversary with a Look Back at Hit Horror Spoof

On July 7, 2000, Scary Movie opened in theaters, signaling the arrival of the most successful franchise of parody movies Hollywood has ever seen. The first Scary Movie was a bitingly hilarious critique of teen slasher flicks, from Scream to I Know What You Did Last Summer. On the movie's 20th anniversary, the cast and crew spoke to Variety about making the now-cult-classic comedy. Marlon Wayans, who wrote the script for the movie alongside his two brothers, recalls going through multiple versions of the feature's basic premise:

"We developed so many different versions of this movie. We worked with our brother Keenen and we wrote a Black draft, a white draft, a high school draft and a college draft. It wasn't until we really saw I Know What You Did Last Summer and Scream that it just kind of clicked for us."

Scary Movie was also the first film that Anna Faris ever featured in.
