Actress and Daily Show correspondent Olivia Munn has landed the female lead in Broken Lizard’s new indie comedy The Baby Maker. Paul Schneider (Lars and the Real Girl) is set to star, with Broken Lizard’s Jay Chandrasekhar poised to direct. The film centers on a young married couple having trouble conceiving a child. The husband decides to rob a Pasedena sperm bank alongside his friends, in order to retrieve the specimen he donated as a young man. Variety reports that Munn will play the leading female role in the flick, which is presumably Schnieder’s wife. [Update: Variety has updated their story to report that Munn is starring in a different film called "The Babymakers", which does not involve Broken Lizard.  Expect a title change from one of these films.]

All of the Broken Lizard members are expected to co-star, with Kevin Heffernan playing the playing Schnieder’s crazy best friend, and Chandrasekhar taking on the role of a master Estonian theif. While I found Beerfest be an underrated comedic gem, Broken Lizard’s last outing, The Slammin’ Salmon, left much to be desired. Hopefully they’re back on track with this flick. Peter Gaulke and Gerry Swallow (Ice Age: The Meltdown) wrote the screenplay, with production set to begin this summer in Los Angeles. Munn’s been a bit of a hot property as of late. In addition to being very funny, she’s also extremely good-looking. Most recently, the actress landed a supporting role in Aaron Sorkin’s new HBO series tentatively titled More as This Story Develops.

    I suppose when an attractive woman also has a personality north of a wet rag it’s magnified.
