The queen of '80s TV will move to the big screen in "Scary Movie 5," Deadline is reporting. Heather Locklear will play the creepy mom of a young dancer (Ashley Tisdale) in a spoof of the role Barbara Hershey played in the actual scary movie, "Black Swan." Rounding out the theme, Molly Shannon has been booked to play the character of the cast-off dancer played by Winona Ryder.
The movie will be directed by Malcolm Lee. According to Deadline, David Zucker, who wrote the third and fourth installments of "Scary Movie," co-wrote the script and is producing the film.

Locklear, 50, is no stranger to B movies. Back in 1989, she appeared in "The Return of the Swamp Thing," a Godzilla-meets-the-Everglades sort of flick. She also starred with a young Drew Barrymore in the sci-fi film "Firestarter."
The actress is currently appearing with Betty White and friends on the popular sitcom "Hot in Cleveland." She plays a PR rep for the city.
