Wayans brothers to spoof cops

Action film gets 'Scary Movie' treatment

Keenen Ivory, Shawn and Marlon Wayans have set up one of their signature spoof films at Paramount Pictures.

The three brothers penned and will star in the sendup of cop actioners.

Keenen Ivory Wayans, who helmed the first two films in the brothers’ “Scary Movie” franchise, will direct.

Because the project is a spoof in the vein of the “Scary Movie” pics, there is no official logline. The Wayans brothers’ four “Scary Movie” entries, which lampooned the horror genre, have pulled in more than $420 million domestically for Dimension Films.

The trio will produce the untitled film alongside longtime producing partner Rick Alvarez.

The three brothers most recently delved into the world of cable TV with their upcoming scripted comedy “The Life and Times of Marcus ‘Felony’ Brown” for VH1. They collaborated on the Sony comedy “Little Man.”

They are repped by WMA and manager Lisa Suzanne Blum.
