The "Scary Movie" actress is hard at work on what is now called "I Know What Boys Like," formerly known as "House Bunny." Produced by Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison production team, the film co-stars Katharine McPhee, Emma Stone and Colin Hanks.
Faris stars in the film as Shelley, a Hugh Hefner bunny who gets tossed out of the fabled Playboy mansion and ends up getting a job as a house mother to the lamest sorority on a nearby college campus. Now leading the Zeta Alpha Zeta chicks, Shelley must help the seven socially inept gals from losing their house. In true "Legally Blonde" fashion (the script is written by "Blonde" masterminds Karen McCullah Lutz & Kirsten Smith), Shelley uses her eternally bubbly attitude to hatch a plan that could save the day while simultaneously teaching each of them about the importance of being true to oneself.
McPhee is playing a pregnant hippie in the film, while Hanks has been cast as Faris' love interest. The film also features Monet Mazur ("Torque") as a sadistic Playboy bunny, All-American Rejects singer Tyson Ritter as a fraternity guy, newcomer Owen Benjamin as a butler, Beverly D'Angelo as a competing house mother and Rachel Specter ("Lonely Hearts") as a rival sorority sister.
Rounding out the cast are Kat Dennings ("The 40-Year-Old Virgin"), Dana Goodman ("Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo"), Rumer Willis ("Hostage"), Kiely Williams ("The Cheetah Girls") and all three of "The Girls Next Door": Holly Madison, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt.
Directed by former "Saturday Night Live" writer Fred Wolf, the comedy is targeting a 2008 release. And judging by the already-leaked photos of Faris and friends dressed up like Jessica Simpson wannabes, the actresses seem to know exactly "What Boys Like."
