Boxing legend Mike Tyson has landed another big screen cameo after signing up to appear in Scary Movie 5.

The former heavyweight boxer has already tried his hand at acting in Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, The Hangover and its sequel The Hangover II, and now he's set to star in the latest instalment of the horror parody franchise.

The 46-year-old was spotted on set in Atlanta on Thursday with co-star Heather Locklear.

Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan play lovers in the film, while Ashley Tisdale and Molly Shannon also star.

Tyson will be touring New Zealand in November after he was given a special permit allowing him to apply to enter the country, despite a past rape conviction putting him in breach of immigration rules.
