Can we ever have too much of Anna Faris on the big screen?

The petite blonde actress is set to star in not one but two romantic comedies that will go before the cameras next year.

First up is a role in 'Wedding Banned,' where she will be cast as Robin Williams' daughter in a romantic comedy for Disney's Touchstone label. According to a story in The Hollywood Reporter, the film revolves around a long-divorced couple who kidnap their daughter (Faris) on her wedding day to prevent her from making the same mistakes they did. As they dodge an angry groom and pursuing cops they end up rekindling their relationship.
Can we ever have too much of Anna Faris on the big screen?

The petite blonde actress is set to star in not one but two romantic comedies that will go before the cameras next year.

First up is a role in 'Wedding Banned,' where she will be cast as Robin Williams' daughter in a romantic comedy for Disney's Touchstone label. According to a story in The Hollywood Reporter, the film revolves around a long-divorced couple who kidnap their daughter (Faris) on her wedding day to prevent her from making the same mistakes they did. As they dodge an angry groom and pursuing cops they end up rekindling their relationship.

The project, which is produced by David Hoberman (the guiding light behind 'Monk' and 'The Proposal') and Todd Lieberman ('Wild Hogs'), has no director attached.

Faris' second project is 'TMI,' a comic vehicle created for her and Ryan Reynolds that was just picked up by Universal. This one centers on the premise that while honesty is the best policy in a relationship, "too much information" might not be the best thing, according to a report in Variety.

Reynolds, who is fresh off good notices in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' and 'The Proposal' and will next star in 'Green Lantern,' will also executive produce the film.

Faris has been on a roll lately what with voice chores in 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' and Christmas' 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,' a lead in next year's 'Young Americans,' the fifth 'Scary Movie,' and a starring role in the just announced live-action/CGI 'Yogi Bear' film. Given her comedic talents, it's about time Faris has been given the chance to stretch out in romantic comedies.
