Faris, Pena and Liotta to Observe and Report


Anna Faris, Michael Pena and Ray Liotta will star opposite Seth Rogen in Observe and Report, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Jody Hill, who wrote the script, is directing while Donald De Line is producing the Warner Bros./ Legendary Pictures comedy, which also sees Jesse Plemons (“Friday Night Lights”) joining the cast as well.

“Report” centers around Ronnie Barnhardt (Rogen), a deluded, self-important head of mall security who squares off in a turf war against local cops.

Faris plays a salesgirl at the mall whom Ronnie lusts after, while Pena is Ronnie’s right-hand man at mall security.

Liotta acts as Ronnie’s nemesis, a police detective. Plemons plays another guard under Ronnie’s purview.

Andrew Haas and Marty Ewing are executive producing the film, which goes into production this week.
