Marlon Wayans reveals the surprising inspiration for his Scary Movie character Shorty as a friend of the same name who was initially upset.

Wayans developed the 2000 slasher parody with his brothers Shawn, who also starred in the film, and Keenen Ivory, who would direct the film.

Scary Movie would lampoon a number of popular horror and slasher films of its era, primarily pulling from Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer while also poking fun at Halloween, The Shining, The Sixth Sense, The Blair Witch Project and The Matrix.

Alongside Marlon and Shawn Wayans, the cast for Scary Movie was led by Anna Faris, Regina Hall, Jon Abrahams, Carmen Electra, Shannon Elizabeth, Kurt Fuller, Lochlyn Munro, Cheri Oteri and Dave Sheridan.The film received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics for its scattershot humor and effective parody material and was a box office hit, grossing over $278 million against its $19 million budget.
