Earlier this year, it was confirmed that the studio were planning a fifth instalment in the long-running horror spoof franchise.
Despite the announced release date, it is still unknown whether stars Anna Faris and Regina Hall will reprise their roles as Cindy Campbell and Brenda Meeks respectively.
The franchise's last entry Scary Movie 4 took $41 million at the US box office upon its release in April 2006, and went on to gross around $91 million domestically.
The studio also announced that Patrick Lussier's rebooted Halloween 3D will be released on October 26, 2012.
Scary Movie 5 is expected to hit cinemas on April 20, 2012.
