Yay! I've been so excited about this but was waiting to say something until it was announced... Anna Faris is attached to star in the movie adaptation of 20 Times a Lady! Columbia Pictures is set to produce.
From Reuters/Hollywood Reporter...
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Capitalizing on her "House Bunny" hit, Anna Faris has set up two romantic comedy projects.
Paramount has picked up an untitled pitch about two estranged sisters who team up to land a husband. Faris would both star and serve as an executive producer.
Additionally, Columbia has acquired "20 Times a Lady" as a starring vehicle for Faris. The project, based on a book by Karyn Bosnak, 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.
I love Anna Faris! She's a great actress with amazing comedic timing and she's perfect for the role. Oh, and she's hot, too. I mean, let's be honest... babe's got it going on.
Anywho, the current script was written by Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan and is absolutely hilarious. I wrote a first draft of it, but I had some issues stepping outside of the book and getting an objective look at it, so they bought in these two lovely ladies and it couldn't have turned out better.
So cross your fingers that everything runs smoothly from here on out and rent THE HOUSE BUNNY now!
