Faris sets up next

Let's face it - despite my love of Anna Faris, THE HOUSE BUNNY was a stinker. While the movie itself had me groaning, I couldn't help but continue to be impressed at Faris' comedic chops? I mean, did you see her on "Saturday Night Live?" She could've been a cast member if she didn't get sucked up into the SCARY MOVIE franchise. Now Faris has set up two new projects - one an untitled comedy at Paramount, the other a romantic comedy titled 20 TIMES A LADY at Sony. The first was based on an idea by Faris and LEGALLY BLONDE writers Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith about two sisters who team up to land a husband. LADY is based on the novel of the same name by Karyn Bosnak and follows a woman who reexamines her sexual past and whether her number of past partners is impacting her inability to find Mr. Right. The script was written by Jennifer Crittenden a former writer for "Seinfeld," "The Simpsons" and "Arrested Development" (just one look at her resume should tell you she's a pretty funny lady). Faris can be seen this spring in the Seth Rogen comedy OBSERVE AND REPORT.

Extra Tidbit: Faris won the Stonette of the Year award from "High Times" in 2007.
