Wayans joining pack of thieves for 'Ladykillers'

7 May 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Scary Movie star Marlon Wayans is set to appear opposite Tom Hanks in the Coen brothers-directed remake of Ladykillers for Touchstone Pictures. A remake of the 1955 comedy starring Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers, Ladykillers centers on an eccentric Southern professor (Hanks) who puts together a gang of double-crossing thieves to rob a riverboat casino. They rent a room in an old woman's house, but when she discovers the scheme, somebody has to kill her. The landlady proves tough to dispatch, however. Wayans will play one of the thieves. Ladykillers was penned by Joel and Ethan Coen and is being produced by Tom Jacobson, Barry Sonnenfeld, Barry Josephson and Ethan Coen. The Walt Disney Co. production president Nina Jacobson and executive Jeff Clifford are overseeing for Touchstone, with production planned for the summer. A veteran of both Scary Movie films (which he wrote and starred in), Wayans has also appeared in such films as Requiem for a Dream and Dungeons and Dragons. While he is not involved in the upcoming third installment of the Scary franchise, Wayans is developing a pair of comedy projects at Revolution Studios with his brothers Keenen Ivory and Shawn. Wayans is repped by CAA, attorney Kevin Yorn and manager Eric Gold. »
