Anna Faris Lines Up Two Projects


Anna Faris has set up two projects, including one that reunites her with The House Bunny makers.

Paramount has picked up an untitled pitch from Faris, Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith that will produced by Happy Madison.

At the same time, Columbia has acquired the romantic comedy 20 Times a Lady to act as a starring vehicle for Faris. Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan wrote the script, which is based on the book by Karyn Bosnak.

The untitled Paramount project is a female buddy comedy following two estranged sisters who team up to land a husband. McCullah Lutz and Smith are writing the script and will exec produce with Faris.

“Lady” centers on a woman who goes on a trek through her sexual past in an effort to find Mr. Right, exploring the idea of a person’s sexual quota and whether those numbers matter.
