Anna Faris Is WEDDING BANNED and Gives Ryan Reynolds TMI

     November 17, 2009


It looks like Anna Faris is going to have a very busy 2010.  A couple of weeks ago we told you about her plans to visit Jellystone Park next year when she stars in the Yogi Bear movie.  Now we have news today of two more projects that will star the talented young comedienne.  She has just signed on to the romantic comedies Wedding Banned with Robin Williams and TMI with Ryan Reynolds.  Hit the jump for details on both projects.

The story will revolve around a long-divorced couple who kidnap their daughter on her wedding day to prevent her from making the same mistakes they did.  As you can imagine, the parents rekindle their relationship as they elude cops and the angry groom.  Faris will star as the daughter and Robin Williams is currently signed on to play the father.  The roles of the mother and the angry groom have yet to be cast and there is currently no director attached to the project.  However, the film will be written by the writing team of Jack Amiel and Michael Begler who gave us 2006’s The Shaggy Dog.

Meanwhile, Variety reports that Faris will also co-star next year in TMI with Ryan Reynolds.  The film’s premise will be that while honesty may be the best policy in a relationship, that “too much information” might not be the best thing.  The screenplay comes from Kirsten Smith (The House Bunny) and Marc Klein (Serendipity). Reynolds will also be an executive producer on the film and it could be his next project he’ll do after he finishes shooting on Green Lantern.

Both projects look like that will begin filming sometime next year after Faris is done with Yogi Bear.
