Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan star in first image from Scary Movie 5

The first image has arrived from the tepidly-awaited comedy sequel Scary Movie 5 , featuring troubled stars Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan sharing a bed together.

In much the same way as The Three Stooges heavily played up its Jersey Shore cameos in the trailer, Scary Movie 5 seems to be basing its promotional push around its high-profile guest stars.

Whether or not it turns out to be as surprisingly serviceable as the Stooges movie remains to be seen, but what can be guaranteed is that the pair’s opening scene will be “outrageous, sexy and hilarious”. At least that’s what Dimension’s press department are saying.

Rumours had been claiming that Lohan herself was keen to drop out of the project, suffering “walking pneumonia” and missing meetings before the Weinsteins had a private jet pick her up and personally fly her to the set! As Lohan's camp vehemently deny the allegations, we can probably put this down to colourful rumour-mongering.

Directed by Malcolm D. Lee and starring Ashley Tisdale as Anna Faris’ replacement, Scary Movie 5 opens in the US on 19 April 2013. A UK date has yet to be confirmed...
