‘Scary,’ ‘Grimm’ casting shows a new Dimension

Carlin, Ja Rule join Zucker pic; Gilliam adds 3 to tale

Dimension Films is rounding out the casts on two of its key projects, enlisting George Carlin and Ja Rule to join “Scary Movie 3,” and adding Lena Headey, Peter Stormare and Jonathan Pryce to “The Brothers Grimm.”

Carlin (“Dogma”) and rapper-actor Ja Rule (“The Fast and the Furious”) join a cameo-laden cast for “Scary Movie 3,” headed by Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards.

Also appearing are Jeremy Piven, Simon Rex, Pamela Anderson, Jenny McCarthy, Anna Farris, Regina Hall, Anthony Anderson, Leslie Nielsen, Eddie Griffin, Camryn Manheim, Macy Gray, Method Man, Redman and Master P.

Directed by David Zucker, the latest installment in the hit comedy franchise spoofs such recent blockbusters as “The Ring,” “Signs,” “The Others,” “The Matrix Reloaded” and upcoming “The Hulk.”

Release Oct. 3

Shooting is due to wrap at the end of this month in Vancouver, with domestic release set for Oct. 3.

Headey (“Possession”), Stormare (“Minority Report”) and Pryce (“Pirates of the Caribbean”) join previously announced leads Matt Damon and Heath Ledger in director Terry Gilliam’s “The Brothers Grimm,” which starts shooting June 30 in Prague.

Scripted by Ehren Kruger (“The Ring”), the action-adventure fantasy has the legendary German fairytale scribes battling against a real magical curse after a history of trading in hoaxes. Richard Ridings (“The Pianist”) and Mackenzie Cook (BBC’s “The Office”) are set to co-star.

Charles Roven will produce the Anglo-Czech co-production, which is being co-financed by Dimension and MGM. Dimension will release the film in North America, while MGM will handle international distribution.
