It looks like the writers of Legally Blonde are returning to the subject matter they know quite a lot about: sorority life. But this time the untitled project written by Blonde writers Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith will focus on both Playboy bunnies and sorority sisters. Anna Faris was quickly cast as the central character, and now there are several more joining her, including Colin Hanks to play Faris' love interest.
According to Hollywood Reporter:
The script...centers on a Playboy bunny (Faris) who gets kicked out of the Playboy Mansion and becomes the house mother to the lamest sorority on a college campus.
Hanks is the male lead in the film, playing Faris' love interest. [Monet] Mazur ("Torque") will play an evil Playboy bunny, while [Kiely] Williams will play a member of the lame sorority, one who suffers from extreme shyness and communicates via notes and texts. [Tyson] Ritter is a frat guy who is more than he seems, while [Owen] Benjamin is a butler seduced by Mazur. [Beverly] D'Angelo ("Entourage") is the house mom of the bitchy sorority, of which [Rachel] Specter ("Lonely Hearts") is a part.
I was just wondering where the female-led comedies were, and here we have another one lined up. I think Faris and Hanks make an adorable, albeit goofy couple, and I can't wait to learn more about it like, you know, the title.
