Hollywood has a new power couple, and it's not who you think. Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan have signed on to Dimension Films' Scary Movie 5, and - spoiler alert - the two are killed in the film's opening sequence.

Lohan and Sheen will play what The Hollywood Reporter describes as, "the world's hottest new couple," but will not live to see past the title credits. According to TMZ, the 26-year-old reformed movie star will reportedly earn $200,000 for her brief cameo in the film, while Sheen's paycheck remains undisclosed, for now.

The Scary Movie franchise notoriously features a "big kill" in its opening scene, and Shaquille O'Neil, Dr. Phil and Pamela Anderson are among its past victims.

Ashley Tisdale and Erica Ash will play the leads in the film, which will parody the 2010 Academy Award-winning thriller, Black Swan. Due to start shooting this September, the movie is currently scheduled for an April 19, 2013 release. Originally, the film was slated for an April 2012 debut, but The Playlist reports it was postponed until Jan. 2013 due to production delays.

Scary Movie 5 will be directed by Malcolm D. Lee of Undercover Brother fame, and co-written and produced by comedy icon David Zucker. Zucker previously produced and wrote Airplane! and the Naked Gun movies, and is no stranger to the franchise, having directed Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4, which also featured Sheen.

This memorable role be an integral part of Lohan's Hollywood comeback. The Mean Girls star will next appear as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime telefilm Liz and Dick, and is in the midst of shooting The Canyons, the latest independent film scribed by Bret Easton Ellis.

Meanwhile, Sheen just wrapped a role as the president in the sequel to Robert Rodriguez's Machete, and will begin shooting the second season of his TV series, Anger Management, in a few months.

But, if you cannot wait until April 2013 to see Charlie Sheen back on the big screen, he is currently in Toronto for the Joe Carter Classic Golf Tournament.
