Dimension films is betting on Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen to play "the world's hottest new couple." THR reports that the two tabloid favorites have come aboard "Scary Movie 5," and that at least one of them will die in the film's opening.

That's common practice in the "Scary Movie" franchise. Pamela Anderson, Shaq and others have played the part in previous incarnations of the horror-comedy.

As we noted when rumors of Lohan's casting began floating, the actress is suddenly in the middle of a second act, fielding multiple roles and generally staying out of trouble. She's starring in "The Canyons," a Bret Easton Ellis movie co-starring pornstar James Deen. She also wrapped production on "Liz & Dick," a Lifetime original film on Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

Lohan also did an art film, appearing in Richard Phillips' "First Point."
