Illness has forced Marlon Brando, 77, to bow out of his $2 million cameo role in Keenen Ivory Wayans's Scary Movie 2. "Unfortunately, due to his health issues and unavailability, we must now recast his role," said Dimension Films spokeswoman Elizabeth Clark. "We wish Mr. Brando a speedy recovery." The actor who Variety reported last week had developed a case of pneumonia was to play a priest performing an exorcism in the film's opening scenes.
