It looks like Anna Faris is going to have a very busy 2010. A couple of weeks ago we told you about her plans to visit Jellystone Park next year when she stars in the Yogi Bear movie. Now we have news today of two more projects that will star the talented young comedienne. She has just signed on to the romantic comedies Wedding Banned with Robin Williams and TMI with Ryan Reynolds.
According to THR, Anna Faris and Robin Williams will co-star in Wedding Banned. The story will revolve around a long-divorced couple who kidnap their daughter on her wedding day to prevent her from making the same mistakes they did. As you can imagine, the parents rekindle their relationship as they elude cops and the angry groom. Faris will star as the daughter and Robin Williams is currently signed on to play the father. The roles of the mother and the angry groom have yet to be cast and there is currently no director attached to the project. However, the film will be written by the writing team of Jack Amiel and Michael Begler who gave us 2006’s The Shaggy Dog.
Meanwhile, Variety reports that Faris will also co-star next year in TMI with Ryan Reynolds. The film’s premise will be that while honesty may be the best policy in a relationship, that “too much information” might not be the best thing. The screenplay comes from Kirsten Smith (The House Bunny) and Marc Klein (Serendipity). Reynolds will also be an executive producer on the film and it could be his next project he’ll do after he finishes shooting on Green Lantern.
Both projects look like that will begin filming sometime next year after Faris is done with Yogi Bear.

Most of the recent updates I’ve seen on DC Comics’ Green Lantern movie have been about how they’re moving production from Australia to New Orleans due to budgetary concerns. Now we have another new update, from director Martin Campbell himself, that’s actually about the movie and the visual effects and what we’ll be seeing on the big screen in 2011. It’s nothing major, but it’s a solid update. Campbell talked with Empire recently (via Coventry Telegraph) and said that there are going to be a lot of effects shots. “It’s daunting. Just the process, something like 1,300 visual effects shots, it’s mind-blowing, quite honestly.”
Well, sure, we all hope it’s going to be mind-blowing Mr. Campbell, but what does that mean for us right now? Before we go any further, Campbell himself explains why it’ll be so effects heavy – the Green Lantern ring Ryan Reynolds wears is, obviously, superpowered. And that means it can do a lot, as he explains here:
“It’s energised by a battery on the planet of Oa, which taps into the willpower of everyone in the universe. From that ring you can form constructs. So if you got into a fight, you could form a giant fist. Or a fighter plane.”
Hint, hint? All of the Green Lantern fans out there are saying “okay, we knew that, big deal?” Well, the reason why this is a big deal is because that confirms that: a) Martin Campbell knows the Green Lantern character very well, which is so important for the director, they’re not going to scrap the bigger story for some localized Earth-based story about a Green Lantern crime fighter. As in, now we know that they’re actually keeping the Green Lantern Corps (who knows how much of it we’ll see?) which means we may even see Hal Jordan go to planet Oa. Speaking of which:
“He’s the only superhero to my knowledge who regularly goes to another planet. Superman and Batman were essentially locked into a particular city. The Lantern isn’t so Earthbound.”
Ah, so it sounds like he will be leaving Earth, maybe even a few times. Now this is the big, awesome Green Lantern movie I’ve been waiting to see. It’s exactly why I don’t mind that they shoot this in New Orleans. Where they’re shooting doesn’t really matter, what matters the most is that they have reserved enough of the budget to work on effects afterwards, because this will be very effects heavy and I really don’t want to see any cheap CGI like in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. So far it sounds like they’re moving in the right direction and that Martin Campbell definitely knows what he’s doing. We’ll keep you updated on this! Sound good?
